Reproduction in the Bucharest’s past – how the human bones can reconstruct a demographic behavior

A number of nine archaeological samples (three urban and six rural) were demographic analyzed for crude rate of natality and mortality, life expectancy and coefficient of fertility. For the urban cemeteries the number of children is lower than rural ones, so the rate of natural increase from urban settlements is negative or below of the rural settlements. These hypothesis is corroborating by the statistical data regarding the Bucharest and rural are from Romania in 19th century.
