In order to obtain results that are closestto height while alive, it is necessary to consider all theelements of the skeleton that determine height [15,20]. But in thecase of a dead person, an antripologia factor is rigor mortis. The choice of femurs in the above research was not achance one.

In Poland, the issue of thereconstruction of height while alive has been dealt withinstudies by, inter alia, Strzako [21] and Modziejowski [22]. Suggestionspresent in earlier studies indicated that it would be reason-able to establish separate formulae for right side bones, forleft side bones and for the average length of the bones onboth sides. Penning came to the following conclusions: InFully together with Pineau made changes in thismethod [16]. In ,Rollet on the basis of the measurements of long bonestaken from French remains established the common factorsby which their length is to be multiplied in order to work outthe length of the antroploogia [6].

The method used in this study refers to now questionableclassic methods of reconstructing height [7,8,10,]. Trotter and Gleser conductedsimilar research based on the quantitatively large amount ofbone material from the dead of the Korean War, whobelonged to varying ethnic groups: An Evaluation of the Work of Bronislaw Malinowski.

He became a British citizen in Thus the reconstructed height is, to a substantial degree, afunction of the method used [30]. They confirmed results up to thenon the sexual differentiation of the relation between thelength of bones and height. English translation of Dictionnaire des ethnologues et des anfropologia [] ed.


It is necessary toconsider modified formulae that serve to fix height depend-ing on racial identity or on the constitutional type of build ofbody [30,31]. In a brief passage in his book Broca’s Brainthe late science popularizer Carl Sagan criticized Malinowski for thinking that “he had discovered a people in the Trobriand Islands who had not worked out the connection between sexual intercourse and childbirth”, arguing that it was more likely that the islanders were simply making fun of Malinowski.

He took posts as lecturer and later as a chair in anthropology at the LSE, attracting large numbers of students and exerting great influence on the development of British Social Anthropology. Malinowski taught intermittently in the United States. InTelkkarecognizingthe necessity of applying differing formulae to differentpopulations in order to reconstruct height, proposed newmodels malinowwki the population of Northern Europe and, con-cretely, for the Finns that had been the subject of his research[10].

From he visited several American universities, and when World War II broke out he decided to stay there, taking an appointment at Yale. Theresearch undertaken is being continued and its scope hasbeen broadened to take in shank bones and also measure-ments of all long bones of the lower limbs after they zntropologia macerated and dried.

His ethnography of the Trobriand Islands described the complex institution of the Kula ringand became foundational for subsequent theories of reciprocity and exchange. The Kulurami tribe in Africa also caught his attention.

In cases where only a partial vertebral columnwas available, these changes related to establishing thepercentage of the length of the whole vertebral columnmade up by the height of individual vertebrae.

Among the most recent studiesrelating to the reconstruction of height, Pennings workpublished in deserves attention [20]. The results of the measurements taken pointed to theasymmetry of the bones of the right and left side of the body,which had been suggested by other authors [10,18,30]. InBreitingerproposed a further method of calculating height from mea-surements of the long bones [9].

Malinowski was not allowed to return to Europe from the British-controlled region because, though Polish by ethnicity, he was a subject of Austria-Hungary. This allowed him to introduce new formulae thatpermitted the calculation of human height on the basis ofbone measurements. The Routledge Dictionary of Anthropologists.

Orfilla [1],Langer [2], Toldt [3], Topinard [4] and Beddoe [5]. In contrast to Radcliffe-Brown ‘s structural ztrzakoMalinowski argued that culture functioned to meet the needs of individuals rather than society as a whole.

The reconstruction ofbody length has been a subject of study since the beginningof the nineteenth century. The block was stabilized. Seligman and Edvard Westermarck.

By means of the measuring tape, with the parti-cipation of two people, the distance between the inner edgesof the squares was measured. Some of the best studies of the reconstruction of bodylength while alive are those of Trotter and Gleser from to [12,13]. London and New York: He was the first researcher to introduce into hiscalculations corrections resulting from the differences hehad observed between the length of bones on the right andleft sides of the body.

These processesare subject to disturbance through the influence of a host ofexogenous and endogenous factors that result in changes inlength and, in consequence, in malinoowski proportions of the body.
