Abstract

This paper describes a newly de-fined nonmetric trait in the human dentition, i.e., Hypotrophic Roots of the Upper Central Incisors (HRUCI). Teeth presenting HRUCI are character-ized by abnormally short roots whose crowns exhibit no apparent morphological alterations. The trait was observed in six samples from collec-tive funerary sites in the Iberian Peninsula dated from the Late Neolithic to the Chalcolithic period.
