'Herrerín J, CARMENATE M, 2022: SEXUAL DIMORPHISM OF A MUDEJAR NECROPOLIS OF SANTA CLARA (CUÉLLAR, SEGOVIA, S. XIV AND S. XV). Anthropologie (Brno) 60, 1: 125-139'.
 
Abstract
The objective is to analyze sexual dimorphism in 67 adults from the Santa Clara necropolis. The Sexual Dimorphism Index, t-student and Mann's U tests were calculated to estimate differences between sexes. The number of variables was reduced by principal component and discriminant analysis. The crania are larger in males, but in shape there are differences only in the typology of the orbits and the face width respect to face height. Postcranial dimorphism is less than in cranium. The robustness in the arms is less dimorphic while in the legs it is higher. This could indicate similar manipulation activities in both sexes. The difference between the cranial and postcranial dimorphism, and the low index obtained for stature, places in a scenario of hard living conditions, high workload for both sexes and distribution of tasks related to ambulation, performed mostly by men, and domestic tasks closely related to manipulation, performed by women.
