OBJECTIVES We tested the effect of population-specific linear body proportions on stature estimation. MATERIALS AND METHODS We used a skeletal sample of 31 males and 20 females from the Early Medieval site at Pohansko (Břeclav, Central Europe) and a comparative Central European Early Medieval sample of 45 males and 28 females. We developed new population-specific equations for the Pohansko sample using anatomical reconstructions of stature, then compared percentage prediction errors (%PEs) of… CONTINUE READING
