Some observations on the sacrum of the Bantu-speaking South African Negro



S African Jour Sci 58(1): 14-21



A deatiled survey of 318 sacra belonging to three major tribal groups of the Southern Bantu, to determine the features of the sacrum in (i) the three major tribal groups and (ii) the combined Southern Bantu sample. Two aspects of the survey are discussed in the paper. The number of vertebrae of the sacrum is examined and a classification prescribed. The incidence of transitional features occurring in the first sacral vertebra is discussed and described. A method of estimation of the sacral auricular surface is described and the results in the Bantu are evaluated.
