Abstract

Estimation of sex from skeletal remains is a challenging task for the forensic experts. The aim of the present research was to study the sex differences in human crania based on osteometric analysis. The study was conducted on a total of 118 human crania. It was observed that the Maximum Cranial Length, Inter Orbital Breadth, Biorbital Breadth, Maxillo Alveolar Breadth, Maxillo Alveolar Length, Bizygomatic Breadth and NasionProsthion Length are the parameters which are statistically significant and better determinants of sex than the other parameters taken into consideration. Maximum Cranial Breadth and Orbital Height are observed to be poor determinants of sex.
