The archaeological excavations in Vico III Lanusei, within the urban area of Cagliari, were carried out between 1996 and 1997. The work was supervised by Donatella Mureddu of the Archaeological Authorities for the Provinces of Cagliari and Oristano. The stratigraphic excavation of the site has brought to light various inhabited and funerary areas, testifying to their use from the late republican period through to the Middle Ages. Differing types of burial have been discovered in the area. In particular, one was dug directly into the rock, three were in coffins and two were Capuchin type burials. In this paper a description is provided of the results of the anthropological study of the human skeletal remains found in the burial dug directly into the rock. In the grave there were four infants in a supine position, placed on a later dates.
