'The dome of thought, the palace of the soul' : interpreting the craniological morphology of ancient and near-contemporary Australian aborigines
This thesis serves a number of purposes. Broadly, using craniometrics, it examines the biological affinities of most available ancient and near-contemporary Australian Aboriginal cranial remains. Changes in cranial size and shape are among the major manifestations of human evolution (Henneberg & Steyn 1995) and so this skeletal element provides possibly the best biological and morphological information that is available about an individual or population. Little craniometric research has been...[Show more]
