Endocranial capacity is an important measurement in the study of human evolution, variation and for clinical practice for the study of abnormalities of cranial size and shape. The cranial capacity gives a reasonable estimate about the volume of brain. In the present study an attempt has been made to measure endocranial capacity of the 83 dry human skulls preserved in the department of Anthropology, Utkal University, Bhubaneswar, Odisha, during the year 2013-2014. Skulls choosen for the present study were of adult age only. Dry mustard seeds of uniform size were use to fill cranial cavity to determine the capacity. Mean cranial capacity of male skull was found to be 1329.42, while in female skull mean cranial capacity found to be 1235.61. A highly significant difference (p<0.01) was observed between intracranial volumes of male and female skulls when compared. The present findings are expected to be of forensic anthropological and clinical importance for eastern Indian population.
