This chapter presents our studies of growth and development in Nubian infants and children. The study of growth in the Wadi Halfa children was one of the first of its kind, and it helped to establish the potential for growth studies using prehistoric remains. Our later studies include comparisons of growth patterns between both the Kulubnarti communities and the Wadi Halfa and Kulubnarti. Once again, our results demonstrated the health consequences of politics, social advantage, and economic opportunity. The chapter concludes with our investigations into the obstetric consequences of diminished growth on birthing and neonatal survival.
