   Harris lines (HL) have been recognised as indicators of health status since the 1930s. Aetiology of HL is unclear. In general, these transversal, sclerotised layers are considered to be a reaction to a pathological condition or some form of malnutrition. We evaluated HL in a group of 122 non-adult individuals from the Great Moravian power centre at Mikulčice. We monitored the incidence of these lines on the long bones of limbs- the humerus, femur and tibia. This study confirmed that the highest incidence of HL was on the distal section of the tibia. The lines most frequently formed in the period between the 1st and 3rd year of life. A relationship between the number of lines and social status of the given individual (localisation of the grave within the agglomeration, the character of the grave equipment) was not demonstrated.
