Abstract
This article presents the results of the osteological analysis done for three skeletons discovered in Middle Bronze Age context. The skeletons were identified as belonging to one adult man and two adult women. Osteoarthrosis, periosteal reactions, dental caries, linear enamel hypoplasia and porotic hyperostosis are among the pathological findings that we could identify despite the poor degree of representation and conservation of the skeletal sample. Due to the small size of the sample, the inferences that can be drawn from these data are limited to the individual information for each skeleton.
