Abstract: In archaeological context, anthropologists focus on determination of main characteristics of human population, for example age, sex and ethnic origin. Overall, historical skeletal remains preserved as complete intact skeleton is very rarely. Main factors which modify state of human bones in post‑mortem interval are context and method of inhumation, environmental and ecological factors, biological aspects of an individual (age, dietary) and taphonomical changes affecting the organism after its death. Therefore, it is essential to approach to the evaluation of the historical skeletal material with available anatomic‑microscopic methods, histological and molecularbiological methods.
