Sexing of cattle metacarpals from bivariate scatter plots of proximal width, minimum diaphysial width and distal width against total length, and their indices, were compared with the more sophisticated principal component analysis. The work was based on 39 complete bones from Mediaeval Bergen. It was shown that the plots of distal width against total length was just as reliable as the principal component analysis, whereas the plots based on proximal width, minimum diaphysal width and total length were less reliable.
