View Full Version : Cro-Magnids: A Subrace of the Nordid Race?

Thursday, April 21st, 2011, 01:29 AM
Are unaltered Cro-Magnid types (such as the Dalo-Falid and Brünn types) a subrace of the Nordid race? The reason I ask this is because a number of anthropologists, namely Biasutti, classed Cro-Magnids alongside Nordids, and noted similarities between Nordids and Cro-Magnids. I have noticed that types such as Alpinids and Baltids tend not to be compared to Nordids in the way Cro-Magnids are either.

Please look at this source:

As you will see, the Brünn type is classed as a Nordid subrace. Thank you for your time. I personally believe if the Cro-Magnids and Nordids are two entirely different types, it's just a coincidence that they share certain characteristics such as large stature, skin pigmentation and limb size etc.

The essential trias for any racial classification always is: Kephalic index, body height, pigmentation.

The Dalofaelids among the Cromagnids can be considered Nordeuropid, at the utmost "Nordoid", but in no case Nordid strictu sensu.

Nordids - together with Mediterranids - belong to the Aurignacid category. Aurignacids are leptodolichomorph: narrow face, long skull. You will find many threads/posts on this forum which will put that more scientifically than I just did.

(Unreduced) Cromagnids like Dalofaelids, Palaeatlantids and Berberids on the other hand are mostly eurydolichomorph: broad face, long skull.
The Borreby is a - partially - reduced, eurybrachymorph Cromagnoid type. Borrebys have in general a short, however high skull combined with a broader face.

(Dinarids, at least central European Dinarids, are mostly leptobrachymorph, whereas Alpinids are typically eurybrachymorph.)

Maybe I will write more later on. My time is restricted right now, but I think the above reflects the essential quite well.

In the link you posted, they are called Nordic (North European)

Correct in my book.

we faelids are subnordid, and most have nordid admixture
