In 2008 I published a paper The utility of carpals for sex assessment: A preliminary study, in the American Journal of Physical Anthropology – you can read the text here: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/ajpa.20738/full
I had very much forgotten about it until an Academia email popped through and I found a few more papers had used my carpal measurements for their own studies. Super proud that the measurements are still in use and the paper is still relevant!
These are the other papers if you fancy a read!
