Abstract: This study deals with the general analysis of the Pókaszepetk cemetery and with the sexual dimorphism of this too. Pókaszepetk is situated in South-West-Transdanubia (a Hungarian territory between the rivers Danube and the Drava), its cemetery contains 248 graves dating from the period of the early Avars. A comparison of 36 male and 26 female series is elaborated according to Penrose’s method. These series date from diverse periods and the localities are situated in Hungary and in its neighbourhood. The results of the comparison mentioned above are completed with investigations of the related branches of learning like history and archeology to clear the problems of the ethnology.
