'Piontek J, Śmiszkiewicz-Skwarska A, 1994: Metrical and Non-metrical Analysis of Polish Crania from Early Medieval to Modern Times. Anthropologie (Brno) 32, 1: 77-84'.
The main idea of the article is an analysis of the question: what is the cognitive value of metrical traits of a cranium as compared with the non-metrical traits and whether the model of morphological variability described by means of these two sets of features is identical or different? Eleven populations were selected for the study. They came from the area of Poland and were dated from early medieval to modem times. The main factor which creåtes the gradient of variability of non-metrical traits is the geographical factor and the main factor which forms the gradient of variability of metrical traits is the one connected with the chronoloo of the groups.
