We thank M. Bessou, and M. Jantac for their assistance with various phases of this study, especially for the radiographs used in dental age estimation. We also thank the Horni Pocernice warehouse team and the National Museum of Prague for its welcome at each mission. Statistical analysis for the software of age-at-death estimation was carried out by V. Honkimaki (ESRF, Grenoble), and without him, the new approach would never have been developed. Thanks also go to P. Sellier, and L. Polâcek for their discussions on historical background, and on dental defect scoring. We are also grateful to Mrs. Batby for reading and commenting on the manuscript. Special thanks to my husband for his help with the images processing. To all of these people and institutions we are immensely grateful.
