    Abstract

    We recorded nine measurements and one index of the iliac crest in 42 human hip bones from a Spanish skeletal collection. Common values of seven of these parameters and index are reported. We could detect statistically significant differences of means depending on side for two of these parameters (iliac crest rise, distance from the upper point of the iliac crest to the anterior superior spine) and for the iliac crest index, and relating to sex for three parameters (iliac crest arch, iliac crest rise, distance from the upper point of the iliac crest to the anterior superior spine) and for the index. These measurements and index are useful for sexing human remains.
