Abstract

Estimating the sex of an individual from skeletal remains can help in their identification. There are many methods that can be implemented to help assess the sex, but when only a skull is available, common morphological traits of the cranium and mandible can be used. Ten morphological traits were used to estimate the sex of the unknown skull. Using these ten characteristics, I was able to accurately conclude whether the skull came from a male or female individual.
