He'd be a North-Atlantid. It's interesting that he was the only "English" Beatle as the others traced their heritages almost entirely from Ireland. He has certain Keltic features like the nose and eyes but others could suggest some ancient bell-beaker origins. I certainly don't think he is very good representative for the English people on a whole.

I agree with Zimmerman, but only because you said he had blue-grey eyes. If his eyes were brown or hazel I'd have said Atlanto-Med.
I guess 'Paleo-Atlantid' would be another option, but I've always had a nagging feeling that this label is just an attempt to 'nordify' brittish meds, so I won't use it.

I was waiting for someone to say that. I had always heard he was of Jewish descent but I have no evidence for it; a couple online bios I checked failed to mention it. I am really not certain.

Ringo Starr is definately not in any part of any Jewish heritage as far as I know. I've read Beatle bio's in accredited book form that have never mentioned anything of that nature. I thinks it's just jewish propaganda to at least claim one of the fab four as their own. Maybe his last name Starr, which is jewish-like, makes them jump the gun. It's not even his real name, it's Richard Starkey.

It's hard to say what his classification is, he could certainly pass for an indigenous British islander but apparantly he's Jewish.

I agree he looks quite Jewish, being his phenotype some kind of Littorid, phenotype that can commonly be found among non-Jews.

"Apparently" and the opinion of the ever so disinterested Jewwatch aren't really good enough for me. Do we have anything more detailed?

We shoudln't look too much at his older pics, God knows what the man's done to his body! The younger pictures look like a very ordinary Liverpudlian or Mancunian.

Perhaps, but taken in combination with the ears and short stature...

It's 50/50 either way. Unless we know Ringo Starr's family tree and the circumstances of his birth, it is impossible to be certain as to what he is.

For what it's worth, he did marry a Jewess (Barbara Bach).

Ringo jewish? this is new to me. I wonder how reliable can Jewwatch be, they even listed Matt Groening as jew...

Not much, non-Jews do marry Jews. I used to know a Norwegian guy (Trönder) who only went after Jewish girls. He looked better than the girls he dated! I do not know how was able to find them. He never seized to amaze me and he is definitely not a Jew.

So it does happen although it is not very common because Jews are the most endogamous group of people (at least among the civilised peoples of the world).

He looks distinctly Armenoid. He's got the snorkel, the eyes and the lower lip. His look is not common in Britain.

For English Is his look common in England? I wouldn't take him as a foreign if I live in Englan imo.

Anyway, I know his son I saw him in an oasis concert. He doesn't look particularly Jew either.

Anyway, I know hundreds of Jew that look europid
and many who look jew 50% and 50% I would say.

He's far from typical, but I wouldn't look twice either.

That is probably a common stereotype abroad, likewise the erroneous belief that many English people speak RP English while it is in reality only 3 %. Some of the English aristocrats ldo ook like him. Few ordinary people are similar looking, although a similar look and colouring is found in the whole south-east. I think he fit in the description (bold text) below by Lundman, which I believe result in a phenotype not far from Coon's Anglo-Saxon.

"We can present as an example just two contrasting counter-types, which are not only simply racial in origin, and still less only phenotypically environmentally conditioned. This is the contrast between the cool, hyper-leptosome, still near-sinewy, English aristocrat (predominantly Nordic, but still somewhat North-Atlantid or even Litoral mixed, in race) and the industrious, hypomanic, often aesthetic, south German provincial inhabitant."

Bertil Lundman, The Races and Peoples of Europe, New York: IAAEE. 1977.

An interesting website about their origins:

http://www.monarchist.ca/archives/ethnic.htm

I think the royal families of Europe are more similar (maybe because many have the same ancestry, largely German) to each other than they are to the natives.
