Abstract

The article describes a female skull from the contemporary cementary of Pestkovo, Bulgaria, with morphological traits of microcephaly (skull capacity - 907 cm3 ). The skull was characterised by means of measurements with reference to 60 skulls of contemporary Bulgarians. Thus the normalised data and values of natural Perkal’s indices were obtained. Obtained data indicate morphological differences of skull with microcephaly compared with the normal ones. In general, the analysed skull is of a smaller size although the values of its height (porion-bregma), total facial height (nasiongnathion) and palatial length (orale-staphylion) are bigger than in the control group.
