Size factor as one of the problems in the sex estimation of skulls: Upper Palaeolithic sample from Předmostí (Czech Republic) as an example

Publication at Faculty of Science |


In this study we estimate sex and population affinity of Gravettian Predmostí (P) skulls using linear and geometric discriminant analysis (DA), and compare them with results of 2D geometric morphometrics (GM). We used the measurements of P3 and P9 males, P4 and P10 females, as originally estimated by Matiegka (1934), as well as two databases--the recent skull database of Howells and the fossil data of Henke.
