    Question What's More Important for Classification? Face or Head?

    What's more important for classification?

    It seems Guenther favors head dimentions...

    Perhaps, that's because average Scandinavian FI is 86 - 89?

    http://www4.stormfront.org/whitehistory/mapspart2.htm

    It seems that the Eastern border of this zone (86-89) shows where the real East-Baltic influence begins...

    The map is not precise thou - you shall move the border 200 km (to 40')' to the East.

    I have doubts about how accurate FIs really are. My first question is who took this data, and when? My second question is can you have a long head with a short face? I wouldn't know, don't know many short faced people besides alpines.....

    Although I really could be wrong about this, I think dinarics tend to be leptoprosopic, yet brachycephalic.
    If that's true, then why not the converse?

    Maybe they just appear short faced due to their broad face. I was going on looks, not measurement.

    I can determine if a broad faced person is long faced (nose, mouth, chin)... short-faced people have "compressed" faces.
