   This paper discusses and proposes the reliable of sexing technique of human cranial material for early medieval central European population. The application of so-called primary and secondary sex diagnosis is necessary and concern a large sample of three Great Moravian graveyards. Only skeletons with preserved hip bone and cranium were employed (N=332). The secondary sex diagnosis uses 12 linear cranial variables commonly employed in other studies in the discriminant function analysis (DFA). A set of 9 DFA specific for medieval central European population is proposed. The accuracy of DFA vary from 80,3 % (with 4 variables) to 86,1 % (with 5 variables). We carried out also a reliability test of DFA in a small sample 28 skulls whose sex was estimate with help of primary sex diagnosis tool. The error rate is in agreement to observed classification accuracy around 80 %. The DFA is possible used in the field work for a quick and preliminary sexing of cranial remains or in absence of the pel
   vic bones.
