Abstract

The article is focused on analysis of new anthropological materials from the MinusinskBasin. The metric characteristics of the cranial series from Chalpan and Chernogorsk tombs (Tesinskaya culture) are introduced. By means of multivariate statistics, we analyzed origin and biological affinities of the Early Iron Age populations from the MinusinskBasin and Tuva. The new data confirm the non-Tagar origin of these groups which are probably related to the populations from more Southern or Western regions.

 

Key words:  cranial metrics, Early Iron Age, Early Tesinsk crypts, MinusinskBasin, Tagar culture, canonical variate analysis.
