The remains found in Gnaty-Lewiski belong to a single individual. The state of preservation and skeleton fossility were mediocre, postdepositional breakage of the bones occurring due to soil and root pressure. The long bones and cranium were measured according to Martin's technique (R. Martin, K. Saller 1957). Cranioscopic and nonmetric traits were also described (K. Piasecki 1992; J. Piontek 1999). All observed diagnostic skeleton traits suggest a female. The woman died at the age of about 18-21 years (iuvenis/adultus). Her body height, based on long bone measurement, was about 160 cm. The young age, height, lack of pathological changes in the skeleton and good dentition are indirect proof of health and good overall condition at the time of death.
