Variation in human long bones, particularly in cross-sectional geometric properties, are widely known to be influenced by body size. These effects are traditionally controlled for in order that behavioural information be revealed from these properties. It has also been predicted that physique affects variation in the proximal limb, but the magnitude of these effects and the extent to which they persist down the length of the limbs are less well understood. Here I will discuss a 3D laser scan approach to investigate these effects in a variety of hunter-gatherer samples and report early results.
