The sex of animal remains from paleozoological contexts can offer information of prehistoric faunal exploitation and spatiotemporal changes in body size. Traditional approaches to sex determination use multiple univariate statistical analysis of bone measurements to distinguish males, females, and subadult individuals. Multivariate statistical analyses offer an alternative, quantitative method to capture the same information that is not dependent on relatively subjective analysts’ assessments. A large sample of bison data published by (M. E. Hill, Jr., et al. 2008) illustrate the potential of this method for future research.
