Societal and ecological determinants of urban health : a case study of pre-reproductive mortality in 19th century Gibraltar.
A historical based enquiry of colonial Gibraltar at the turn of the 19th century was conducted in order to assess what factors gave rise to residential variation of pre-reproductive mortality.
Gibraltar's unusual configuration of a port city, garrison town, and commercial centre at the tip of the Iberian peninsula offers a unique opportunity to examine the interplay of ecology, demographic and socio-economic factors on childhood mortality.
Communal living under the patio system and the sharing of essential resources were characteristic features of life on the Rock.
