The first Prehistoric Iberian twins found

1 post in this topic

The remains were found in the archaeological site of Sant Miquel d’Olèrdola in Catalonia and it is expected that they belong to two girls between 38 and 40 weeks of gestation who were buried at the same time in the same grave with their legs entwined.

According to the study, “none of the bone remains show pathological evidence of the cause of death but it could have been a consequence of difficult pregnancy or childbirth. Lack of sufficient hygiene could have lead to infant and maternal mortality in Prehistoric times.”

In order to test this finding, scientists used forensic anthropology methods, first determining the age and sex. “The specialist carrying out such assessment was ‘blind’. In other words, she was not told at any time that both individuals were found next to each other or that they could be twins.”
