The aim of this study was to document variation of deciduous tooth formation and eruption. The material comprises 121 individuals of known or estimated age (using tooth length) from Spitalfields in London, and radiographs of 61 healthy living children aged 2-5 years. Other skeletal material from two medieval Scottish archaeological sites (Whithorn, N=74; Newark Bay, N=59) was also examined. Stages of crown and root formation as well as eruption (alveolar, midway, and occlusal levels) were… CONTINUE READING
