Hu Xingyu Lan Shunqing Department of Amatomy, Luzhou Medical College. Luzhou 646000
In order to find a correlation between “Bo Ren”, Liao and Ancient Yur through comparison of bones of Han people with that of other nationalities the clavicle, scapula, humerus and antebrachial bone for 51 items of seven adult “Bo Ren” were measured, and from which 17 indices were figured out. The stature were calculated from the length of upper limb bone. In which 2 of the 4 males were found being short and the 2 other were submoderate, and 2 of the 3 females being moderate and the other 1 super-moderate. Most of the measurements showed significant sexual difference, but the indices of bone features of both sexes were almost the same, except for male′s being more sturdy and more prominant in crest for muscle. Compared with Han people, “Bo Ren” had apparently longer coracoid process, presumably due to climbing all year long.
