dc.description.abstractThe influence of early life experiences is known to influence health and growth in later life. Proper breastfeeding and weaning processes are fundamental for the optimal development of children. Breastmilk provides the infant with all the nutrients required for their growth, while at the same time bringing immunity factors which protect infants against illness. Given the importance of this period, it is surprising that very few bioarchaeological studies have tried to link this process to the growth pattern of archaeological populations. A programme of study is therefore proposed to analyse different growth parameters, such as linear growth, appositional growth and linear enamel hypoplasia, in order to characterise the growth patterns of a sample from the Black Gate collection. And later analyse the possible relationships between these patterns and the probable feeding practices of this population, obtained from the study of stable isotopes. The results indicate that in most cases when suboptimal breastfeeding and weaning was present, individuals tended to be short for their age. However, the sample size limits the interpretations we can draw from this study and remark the necessity of analysing a varied range of growth parameters. Furthermore, the use of stable isotope analysis can bring light into aspects of infant nutrition that could not be studied in the past, and represent an important method to be incorporated into growth studies of the past.es_CL
