skeletal material from North End Pot was analysed by
Leach (2006) as part of her study of the sites in the Lord Collection.
She was able to divide thesixty-nine fragments recovered into two
groups based on the reported context where they were found and by
differences in their condition. Nine fragments from the upper shaft
and entrance area are parts of two different sub-adults, a child of
4–5 years old and an adolescent of between 14 and 18 years old.
These two burials certainly took place in the Late Iron Age, based
on the radiocarbon dating carried out for the police
gender played a major role in the organisation of this cemetery (Stoodley, 1999 : 131). Penn and Brugmann agreed but argued that Westgarth Gardens cannot be organised into different plots for men, women and children (Penn and Brugmann, 2007 : 86). However, thesixty-six burials, in sixty-one graves, do show strong gender segregation, with women buried to the north and men to the south. Interestingly, children’s graves were placed between these two areas ( Figure 4.11 ). This site does not appear to have been organised into different plots, but this was also not a
characteristics in plot A and B more challenging. Nonetheless, there are important differences in dental pathology between plots C and D. Overall, dental pathology showed similar results to arthritis. Dental caries, for instance, had a limited frequency with no particular patterns ( Figure 5.2 ). The thirty-seven examples were proportionally distributed between plot C (20 of 95) and plot D (17 of 60). Abscesses were similar again, with eight examples in plot C and four in plot D. However, enamel hypoplasia was found in fifteen of thesixty graves (25 per cent) in plot D whereas
