Linear enamel hypoplasia (LEH) is a macroscopically detectable band-like dental defect, which represents localized decrease in enamel thickness caused by some form of disruption to a child’s health. Such dental deformations are utilized in osteoarchaeological research as permanent markers of childhood physiological stress and have been extensively studied in numerous ancient human populations. However, currently there is no such data for medieval populations from Canterbury, UK. Here, LEH is… CONTINUE READING
