Nonmetric Dental Trait Distribution in the Neolithic Populations of Southwestern Siberia

A.V. Zubova and T.A. Chikisheva.

The article explores dental affi nities of people associated with three Neolithic cultures of southwestern Siberia. At least three morphological components were revealed. The fi rst, evidently derived from the Upper Paleolithic population of the Altai-Sayan Highland, is found in the Baraba forest-steppe. The second, related to Baikal Mongoloids, is present in people representing the Kuznetsk-Altai and Bolshemys cultures. The third component, revealing affi nities with the Mesolithic people of northeastern Europe, was detected in the Vengerovo-2a group.
