Abstract

Determination of sex is one of the first and important factor in identifying decomposed bodies and skeletal remains. The correct sex determination is critical requirement in physical anthropology and medico- legal cases. The statistical sex difference is found in mean values of cranial circumference 1 and maximum cranial circumference 2 in male and female crania (P < 0.01). Maximum cranial circumference 1 is more effective parameter in sexing of crania.
