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.8 contains metric observations (Infracranial Measurements in Adults from Ban Chiang) 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

The first letter in each variable is the side: R = right, L = left

All measurements recorded to the nearest millimeter

MIDAP = Midshaft anterior-posterior diameter

MIDTRAN = Midshaft transverse diameter

MIDCERM = Midshaft circumference

Fibula

FIBLNTH = Fibular length

MIDIAM = Midshaft diameter

Patella

PATHT = Patellar height

PATWD = Patellar width

PATHK = Patella thickness

Calcaneus

CALNLNT = Calcaneal length

CALNBTH = Calcaneal breadth

Talus

TALUSL = Talar length

TALUSB = Talar breadth

Lumbar Vertebrae

LUM1POST -- LUM5POST = Lumbar vertebra 1-5 posterior height

LUM1ANT -- LUM5ANT = Lumbar vertebra 1-5 anterior height

Physiological Lengths

TIBSPIN = Maximum length of the tibia including the spine

RADPHYS = Physiological length of the radius

TIBPHYS = Physiological length of the tibia

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.

Indices

The last letter is the side (R = right, L = left)

HUMDIA = Humeral diaphyseal index

HUMROB = Humeral robusticity index

RADHUM = Radial-humeral index

INTERM = Intermembral index

FEMROB = Femoral robusticity index

FEMHUM = Femoral-humeral index

TIBRAD = Tibial-radial index

TIBFEM = Tibial-femoral index

TIBTHK = Tibial thickness index

PLATYM = Platymeric index

PILAST = Pilastric index

PLATYCN = Platycnemic index

PATMOD = Patella module

LUMBAR1 = First lumbar vertebral index

LUMBAR2 = Second lumbar vertebral index

LUMBAR3 = Third lumbar vertebral index

LUMBAR4 = Fourth lumbar vertebral index

LUMBAR5 = Fifth lumbar vertebral index

LUMBVERT = Lumbar vertebral index
