Is there a list of racial types, other than northern european? For example, Nordish has many types: Faelish, Borreby, Tronder, etc. Are there any "sub-types" like these in Mediterranean types or whatever. And does the Nordish type include caucasian Russians? If so where, and if not, where could those be found?

EDIT: Whoops, I didn't notice all of these other forums, hehe. Admins, you can scratch this thread :)

Here you can find out about the term Nordish and its types: http://nordish.com/

The "caucasian Russians" you speak of would fit into Nordish depending on their racial type. They also might be something else. You ask about what other racial types there are besides Nordish...... from my understanding of some theories that I have read, there are three main racial types in Europe: Nordid, Mediterranid, and Alpinid. Maybe Agrippa, Glanilivet, Frans, etc. can tell you more or about other theories.

Yes, quite a few sources use only these three basic types, but I think that's a bit oversimplified. I like the five group model better (Cro-Magnid, Nordid, Mediterranid, Baltid, Alpinid, Dinarid) but that too is still a simplified model of the racial diversity in Europe.

The forms between brackets are considered (by Agrippa) to be the most typical forms of their respective groups.

Ah, okay thanks. Do you guys have any links to some websites that go deeper into this? I've visited nordish.com before, it's a great site. Are there any others like it that are devoted to other types?

Thanks again.
