Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Smith discusses the dental status of the Natufians, comparing it to earlier hunter-gatherers and later agriculturalists. She uses dental data to look for changes in the diet or food processing techniques. Smith believes there is a 'very high frequency of congenital absence of mandibular third molars' (or third molar agenesis) (page 431) at Hayonim Cave that indicates 'a high degree of consanguinity between those affected.' (page 431).
