Physical anthropologists are continually looking for new ways to determine sex from skeletal remains. Determination of sex is done either metrically or descriptively (morphologically). Many characteristics cannot be metrically assessed and descriptive characteristics cannot always be objectively compared. Geometric morphometrics is a relatively new method that provides a mechanism to quantify descriptive morphological characteristics and provides statistics to interpret findings. In this study… CONTINUE READING
