A series of 45 human crania from Hierakonpolis are curated as part of the Duckworth Collection of the Department of Biological Anthropology, University of Cambridge. After the recent re-excavation of Cemetery HK43 at Hierakonpolis and archival research, these crania have been tentatively identified as some excavated by J.E. Quibell in the late 19th century. This paper compares these original crania from Hierakonpolis with those more recently excavated. It presents the results in terms of the diversity and variable cranial affinities of the Predynastic Hierakonpolis population as compared with other Egyptian Predynastic crania.
