Abstract:
The paper presents the results of a study of teeth as a potential source of information on sex. The research was performed on the total of eighty-six skulls excavated in the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century from a medieval cemetery (tenth and eleventh century) near Osijek in Croatia. Sex was determined on the basis of twenty osseal craniofacial, as well as odontometric features. Sexual dimorphism of the odontometric features was tested by the Students' t-test method. Determining sex on the basis of craniofacial features was possible in 55.8% of the cases. Combining the craniofacial and odontometric features it was possible to determine sex in 86% of the cases. It was concluded that in cases where ante-mortem data on sex are not available it is best to combine a number of different methods in order to raise the level of confidence and the level of success in sex determination.
