Abstract: The chief aims of this chapter are to describe the Man Bac human skeletal sample in terms of its sex and age-at-death distributions. Moreover, the preservation of the sample will be discussed in the context of a demographic reconstruction of the past population, which will include a range of measures of fertility. Inferences regarding the demographic ‘health’ of the population will be made with reference to major social and behavioural changes seen in the region some 3,500 years ago.
