'Mednikova M, Trinkaus E, 2001: Femoral Midshaft Diaphyseal Cross-sectional Geometry of the Sunghir 1 and 4 Gravettina Human Remains. Anthropologie (Brno) 39, 2-3: 103-108'.
 
Abstract
The Sunghir 1 and 4 adult male femoral diaphyses were analyzed at midshaft using cross-sectional geometry. Despite the geographical distance and contrasts in terrain between Sunghir and the sites yielding comparative earlier Upper Palaeolithic samples from across Eurasia, the Sunghir 1 and 4 femora are extremely similar to those other early modern human femora in cross-sectional shape and robusticity. This suggests that these Gravettian human populations experienced high levels of mobility and burden carrying irrespective of their geographical and environmental contexts.
