    Classify This Northern European Man



    Please classify this man on this old wedding foto. Do you think he would pass as "Swedish type" or "Nordic type" in the anthropologists old books? Or perhaps he would be more Eastern (East Baltic)-looking?

    Guess his Northern ethnicity too. I'll reveal what he is later.

    Nordid/East-Baltid mix (like you said basically)

    Tornedalsfinne, my wild guess!

    The old classifications I have seen have been West-Baltid, Västmanland type, Faelid (though he lacks the "strong" features of Faelid) and even Brünn. The only "Nordid" I have heard is von Eickstedts Dalo-Nordid.

    He is from Southern Ostrobothnia. Though considering that, based on autosomal DNA-samples, Southern Ostrobothnians are quite equal to Torney Valley Finns, your guess was quite correct.
