    Take your maximum cranial breadth (euryon-euryon) and maximum cranial length from glabella (above nasion) to the opisthocranion. The Cephalic Index is a ratio, divide the width by length and multiply by 100.

    Some count dolichocephaly from under 80 while others say a true long head is under 75. Others count under 75 as long headed, 75-80 as mesocephalic and over 80 as brachycephalic. Around 80 is a mesocephalic index. Above 82-83 is always brachycephalic. 82 in the living is 80 of crania.

    You can buy a caliper in a mechanic tools shop, but get a large one, with wide arms.

    Or use the doors of a sliding-door closet.
