The metacarpal bones are of great importance for anatomists, anthropologists and forensic specialists in the routine teaching and analysis of quantitative and qualitative traits in skeletal remains. The purpose of this study was to provide different parameters for the first metacarpal bone of the saurashtra population. The first 42 metacarpal jawbones were measured, and their size was compared with the white American and Spanish population. The mean, SD, t value and p value were calculated, and in the case of sexual dimorphism the border point method was used.
