Summary
This database is part of Appendix E, from Ban Chiang, a Prehistoric Village Site in Northeast Thailand, Volume 1: The Human Skeletal Remains (tDAR ID #: 376592). Database E.1 contains metric observations (Cranial Measurements, Indices, and Capacities in Adults) by individual burial excavated from the BC and BCES locales at Ban Chiang, Thailand.
Coding information is pasted at the bottom of this abstract, and can also be downloaded as a .txt document at tDAR ID#:
SPECID = Individual Burial Number
First number is excavation locale
1 = BC, 1974 excavation
2 = BCES, 1975 excavation
followed by two spaces and then the burial identification number.
Example: 1 14 is BC Burial 14
AGE
YG ADULT = Young Adult (20-35 years)
MIDAGED = Middle-aged Adult (35-50 years)
OLD = Old Adult (50+ years)
ADULT = Adult (20-50+ years)
SEX = Sex of individual
SITE = Site of excavation
YEAREXAM = Year burial was examined
INSTCODE = Institution where burial was examined
UHM = University of Hawaii at Manoa
Variables MAXCRANL through INTRORB2 were recorded to the nearest millimeter
MAXCRANL = Maximum cranial length
NASOCCIL = Nasio-occipital length
BASINASI = Basion-nasion
BASIBREG = Basion-bregma
MAXCRANB = Maximum cranial breadth
MAXFRONB = Maximum frontal breadth
MINFRONB = Minimum frontal breadth
BISTEPHB = Bistephanic breadth
BIZYGOMB = Bizygomatic breadth
BIAURICB = Biauricular breadth
MINCRANB = Minimum cranial breadth
BIASTERI = Biasterionic breadth
BASIPROS = Basion-prosthion
NASIALVE = Nasion-alveolare

MASTOIDW = Mastoid width
BIMAXILB = Bimaxillary breadth
BIFRONTB = Bifrontal breadth
BIORBITB = Biorbital breadth
INTERORB = Interorbital breadth
MALRLINF = Malar length, inferior
MALRLMAX = Malar length, maximum
CHEEKHGT = Cheek height
FORAMAGL = Foramen magnum length
NASIBGCR = Nasion-bregma chord

BIMAXSUB = Bimaxillary subtense
NASFROSB = Nasio-frontal subtense
NASGNAT = Nasion-gnathion height
NASIPROS = Nasion-prosthion
FRONTSUB = Frontal subtense
PARIESUB = Parietal subtense
OCCIPSUB = Occipital subtense
INTRORB2 = Interorbital breadth II
CAPACITY = cranial capacity (reported in cc)
The following are indices that were calculated by computer to four places to the right of the decimal point. During data conversion from mainframe to personal computer format, the indices were truncated to two places right of the decimal point--they were not arithmetically rounded.
CRANINDX = Cranial index
LHINDEX = Height-length index
BHINDEX = Height-breadth index
GNATHIC = Gnathic index
UFINDEX = Upper facial index
ORBINDEX = Orbital index
NASINDEX = Nasal index
MAXALVX = Maxillo-alveolar index
CRANMOD = Cranial module
TFACINDEX = Total facial index
