RESUMO

Describes a physical, anthropological, paleo-pathological study on the remains of Negro slaves from plantation "Waterloo" in Suriname (1793/1796-1861). Its aim was to reveal the living and health conditions of a plantation community. It comprised of a survey of the burial site, the excavation and inspection of 57 graves, and the laboratory analysis of the skeletal remains of 38 individuals. Main topics were the burial practice, demography, pathological changes and anomalities of bones. The results seem to correspond with archive data. A high incidence of treponematosis (56 per cent) was probably due to a surplus of males and to unstable matrimonial relationships. Both the calculated stature and Harris lines reflected a poor and fluctuating health and nutritional status during growth. Compared to a locally buried pre-Columbian Amerindian population (ca. 900 A.D.) the slaves seemed to have a better life expectancy and dental status. The Amerindians seemed less susceptible to infectious diseases and anaemia
