Hi.

Is there somewhere, something like a repository where scientists put their data on found ancient prehistoric skulls, including datation, photographs and digging context ( what's around ) ?
It would be a huge help to figure out things, and have a nice, clean overview of humans' change through time, even (or especially ?) for laymen.

Thanks !

Yes, there is huge dataset of 2500 skulls from whole world.

https://web.utk.edu/~auerbach/HOWL.htm

Data are in excel so you can make nice PCA or other multivariate analysis on them.

Ancient skulls are in Howells Craniometric "Test" Data Set

Hello

Does anyone happen to have the "Test" Data Set saved(or know of somewhere else to download it)?
(It is no longer accessible on https://web.utk.edu/~auerbach/HOWL.htm)

In that case if anyone could post it here I would much appreciate it.



EDIT
Found it...
It can be found here if anyone else happens to be interested: https://github.com/geanes/bioanth/tree/master/inst/extdata
