Can someone please help me in discerning the differences between Baltid (West, East and just plain Baltid) and Borreby? I think it would be helpful to be able to compare and contrast pictures of the differing types also.

In another thread someone claimed that Baltid looks more Slavic and Borreby looks more German... how so?

I haven't photos, but the main difference is in the size (height) , and the correlate bones hardiness. Baltid is essentially a direct gracialization of Borreby.

We could say that Borreby is the "deluxe version" of Baltid.


To reasume :

Cromagnid // Baltid

height tall // medium or short
structure very robust // average
face squared // roundish
constitution mesomorphic // pyknomorphic

Can you describe what you mean exactly by "exotic"?

Some may show marginal signs of Epicanthus.

But those are more common amongst East Baltids.

I have seen various East Baltids, and as a rule of thumb they have no clear epicanthus. You are confusing this with specimen who are "halfway" to Lappoid. (Which would in the end support the theory of Lappoids being over-borealised E-Bs). Normal East-Baltids, as they are found in Finland, Estonia, Belarus, Russia, have no clear Epicanthus as far as I am aware.

Are there any areas in Germany where you can find "East Baltid" looking like people ?

Hmm, I'm not an expert but I'm guessing in the Eastern parts, especially in what used to be Prussia?
