Abstract: Cross-sectional growth data were obtained from the skeletal remains of children from the Iron Age site of K2 near the Limpopo River. Standard measurements of the diaphyseal lengths of the long bones from both limbs were recorded and compared to published skeletal data. For this purpose, data on Eskimo and Aleut skeletons, Libben skeletons, and skeletons from Indian Knoll and Altenerding were used. An attempt to study growth allometrically was made. K2 children were growing as well as children from these other groups. Comparison of data for K2 children with those on living South African "Cape Coloured" rural children, studied during the late 1980s, shows the similarity of growth of both groups.
