  •  How did the scientists in the Czech Republic (0+ / 0-)

    determine the gender of that carving?  There are no sex identifiers on the carving at all, and the article gives no clue about how the decision was made.

        It could be just as easily a turban as it could be upswept hair.  Maybe CSI used measurements and ratios of bone structure to determine the sex? (says the person who hasn't a clue if science has established a methodology to actually do that......).

      •  Yes Greg, I did click on the link, saw the image (0+ / 0-)

        and read the story.  I'm still wondering how they determined this is a carving of a woman.
