Abstract
Anthropological and statistical analysis was applied to a group of skeletons (six adults and four infants) from an early medieval burial site at Borovce (district of Piešany, Slovakia), connected chronologically and locally with burial 221/92 that contained atypical spurs with a buckle for tying. The morphological similarity, based on craniometric relationships among the individuals of that group and a part of the remaining burial site, was analysed using principal component analysis (PCA) which, however, did not reveal any allochthonic influences.
