Abstract: During the archaeological monitoring of the construction site at the Maria Brown and Fonte streets, Lisbon municipality, township of Carnide, the skeletal remains of seven individuals (five non-adults and two adults [females: 1; males: 2]) were recovered. The anthropological funerary evaluation indicates that the studied sample is probably from the Islamic period. Although limited by sample size, paleodemographic and paleopathological analyses suggest that at least some of the studied individuals experienced physiological systemic stress. Cases of linear enamel hypoplasia (N=2); porotic hyperostosis (N=1) and cribra orbitalia (N=1), as well as a case of non-specific infection – osteomyelitis, were recorded. As a whole, the bioarchaeological data pertaining this small group point to faulty socioeconomic and sanitary conditions.
