Comparison of bone lead in Pre-Hispanic, 18th century and modern population of Tenerife.
The present study has been performed in order to determine concentrations of lead in the bone of 14 individuals who were interred towards the beginning of the 18th century at the church'La Concepci6n' (Santa Cruz de Tenerife) of 15 Pre-Hispanic individuals of Tenerife and a modern sample for Tenerife, composed of 25 individuals.
We have observed higher bone lead values in the modern population than in the ancient one (P=0.0022), although Pre-Hispanic individuals and those of the 18th century showed similar bone lead values.
