Materials to craniology of sarmats
Craniological materials (10 skulls) from burial grounds Chernaya 2 and Kardailovo (Ileksky district of Orenburg oblast) dated IV–III centuries B. C., sarmatskaya archaeological culture are analyzed. The structure of skulls testifies to belonging the population of Orenburg oblast to europoid rece but mongoloid impurity is fixed. There are revealed two racial components: europoid which is genetically connected with sarmat tribes and europoid with mongoloid impurity. The last is analogous to a racial component among the population of gorokhovo and sargat cultures of West Siberia.
