    • Abstract:
      The article focuses on the implications of reproductive development and infant mortality on the population of the Roman Empire. The author explores infant mortality rates, childhood growth patterns, and the history of fertility during this time period by analyzing Roman skeletal evidence. He discusses how female fertility was delayed due to childhood morbidity and malnutrition, examines the anthropometry of sub-adults in relation to infants and children, and analyzes the patterns of Roman life expectancy.
