We found that historic individuals from La Concepción (Tenerife) and San Francisco (Gran Canaria) showed significantly lower bone lead (8.84 ± 13.41 mg/kg and 6.73 ± 4.06 mg/kg, respectively) than the modern population (30.53 ± 14.62 mg/kg). On the contrary, bone cadmium, although slightly lower in the ancient population groups, was not significantly different when compared with the modern one. Bone lead and cadmium kept, however, a significant relationship among the individuals from La Concepción, suggesting a common source of exposure.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/52297||ISSN:||0733-4680||DOI:||10.1081/TMA-120017916||Source:||Journal of Trace and Microprobe Techniques[ISSN 0733-4680],v. 21, p. 189-196|
