  • Descrição: The relationship between dental attrition (nine stage scale) and specimen age, or functional age of teeth, is compared between immature Middle Paleolithic (Neanderthal specimen count=28, tooth count=165) and Upper Paleolithic (anatomically modern specimen count=54, tooth count=338) samples. All specimens are from Western Europe. Maturation rate is treated as the same for both samples for analytical purposes and evaluated in terms of the results. Analysis of reduction in crown volume with age indicates that the wear rate for the posterior permanent (P4–M3) and primary teeth (dm2) does not differ between the samples; however the anterior primary teeth (di1–dm1) are more worn in the UP sample with age held constant. By contrast, anterior permanent teeth (I1–P3) wear more rapidly in the Neanderthal sample. Similar results are obtained in a comparison of relative attrition. The MP sample of anterior primary teeth lags about a year behind the UP sample in the degree...
