Anthropological data from the Hungarian Scythian Period collected from the cemetery excavated at M0 Ring Road

Filed under: -Scythians, Indo-Europeans, Physical anthropology — Ariets @ 1:39 pm

Abstract: The anthropological remains from cremated and skeletonised burial of 84 individuals of the Scythian Period cemetery of M0 Ring Road, Site No. 008, Akácos-dûlõ were examined. Based on remains that could be examined, this population can be characterised by medium length of neurocranium, moderately wide face and medium/tall-medium height. Based on the examination of skulls the face of this people was narrow and the neurocranium was long. This is in line with our current picture about people of the Scythian period. The relatively high proportion of females is very important but no anthropological methods could explain the cause of this phenomenon.
