I think my facial shape is #2 - oval. What's that mean?
#4 reminds me of this black kid I went to school with. lol.

These facial types don't nessecarily correspond to racial types: the chart is mainly meant to aid in the classification of facial forms. However, certain shapes will be more common amongst some types, than others. Nordics are often II (oval); Alpines are often IV (rund); and Phalians are often VI (quadratisch). According to the SNPA, Hallstatt Nordics often have rhomboid-shaped faces: VII (rhombisch). I've attached a better quality version of the picture here.

I would say that Jennifer comes closer to rhombisch. or perhaps inbetween rhombisch and Oval.

My face is IX Verkehrt trapezforming. I seen down over the top of my head once with a combination of mirrors, it was either Sphenoides or Brisoides.

How did everyone determine their headshape? Did you use 3 mirrors or are you guessing?

I used some pictures to determine my facial shape. But I have to admit at first I was questioning if it might be in between rhombisch and oval, but I decided to stick to one shape and I decided oval.

I determined my head shape from memory since I looked at it a million times when we were measuring cephalic index. I could check it again though.

I remember now why I chose oval. My cheekbones aren't so prominent and my forehead is to noticeable degree broader than my chinline. Also, the underlying cranial structure is definitely almost exactly like tha oval's crania.

Do you have a picture I could see?

I would say I have an oval face, perhaps slightly rhomboid in some tendencies. My skull is ovoid, judging by the views of it I've had in the mirror. I had someone help me by them holding the mirrors in position for me.

I recall last time you were uncertain about your dimentions... Could you please (re-)post the results?

I just would like to know metrical info...

PS. Besides, if you're high skulled you're not a Hallstatt, of course.

Coon found man with 1200mm forehead among hallstatts.
Its hallstatien to have high forehead with sloping backward forehead.
the borreby/Dinaric forehead is flat mostly and not sloping.

Man Ross you never give up do you:Newbie

Check your PM.


What did you think Heimdall was? Med?

Grrr... Russians don't give up :-)

Coon says Nordics are a mix of Danubians and BAs, and he's right. He has examples of Danubians and BAs in his book. So any high skulled Nordic is BA.

Where's his photo and dimentions??

No photo, by closer scrutiny of my thoughts I think I read it from Arbo, I will do some searching for it and promise to find it this week.

it was just a footnote in his papers that from the lowest hallstatt forehead to the highest he measured he estimated an average----
