Sažetak
Extant populations of North America can be accurately differentiated through metric and non-metric analyses of crania and postcrania. Unfortunately, these methods are infrequently applied to a broader sample of spatiotemporally dispersed populations. This analysis utilizes four such methods to test two hypotheses about individuals recovered from a 9th century AD cemetery at the Croatian site Velim Velištak: 1) Individuals from the Velim population will classify as Euroamerican ; 2) The range of variation observed within the Velim population will not significantly differ from that of a Euroamerican sample. Measurements taken on individuals from Velim Velištak (n=47) were compared to three American populations: Amerindians (n=47), African Americans (n=61), and Euroamericans (n=64). Discriminant function analysis of the lower midface (Willson, 2004) classified 64.7% of the individuals from Velim as Euroamerican. Indices of the upper midface (Gill, 1988 ; 1990) and femoral platymeria data (Gill and Rhine, 1990) classified 39.0% and 55.3% of the Velim sample as Euroamerican respectively. Nasal sill form frequencies (Willson, 2004) between the Velim and Euroamerican samples were not significantly different. The variation exhibited by Velim did exceed the Euroamerican variation in all cases ; however these individuals appear to be outliers. The results of this analysis refute both of our hypotheses. Possible explanations include: 1) the comparative sample is not representative of the total range of variation within individuals of European ancestry ; 2) Velim may have a different population history than the Euroamerican sample ; 3) sample size may be a factor, and 4) a coalescence of two populations.
