Symbolic trephinations of unusual shape from the Southern Great Plain. Symbolic trephinations are very common in the 9th-11th century AD skeletal material in Hungary. During the compilation of a database of regional cranial modification data, the authors found several new cases in Late Avar and Conquest Period series. In this study, the symbolic trephinations of 14 skulls are described from the 8th-11th centuries AD in the Southern Great Plain of Hungary, and special emphasis is given to the almond shaped lesions of the sample. The authors also give account of the possible sexual symbolism and the application of these special shapes among the more abundant small round symbolic trepahinations. The new findings may strengthen the theory of close cultural connections of Late Avar and Early Hungarian populations.
