Abstract
Non-metric variations of the proximal male femur were recorded from two broadly contemporary skeletal groups in England. Analysis showed that these variations were related to age and to patterns of activity, rather than to biological affinity or distance. It is suggested that many such traits are strongly influenced by environment, rather than genetics.
