   The focus of this research is the comparative assessment of the health status of three cemeteries of different socioeconomic status in the area surrounding the Mikulčice castle. We have compared about 850 skeletons from (1) the castle cemetery and (2) subcastle cemeteries in Mikulčice and (3) a cemetery from the poor village of Josefov located eight kilometres from Mikulčice. The following characteristics were examined: linear enamel defects, dental caries, cribra orbitalia, Harris lines, trauma, degenerative joint disease and occupation stress markers, sexual dimorphism and demographic estimators. For example: the incidence of hypoplastic defects is found mostly in individuals between the ages of 2 to 4 years. Cribra orbitalia appears more frequently in the rural Josefov cemetery. Inhabitants at the extramural settlement exhibit poorer dental health than people burried inside the castle.
