    Browridges are seen in other primates like gorillas and chimpanzees, if you look at them, as well as in fossil Homo. Prominent ones in moderns are associated with robust types, while less robust races don't show them.

    I don't know how robust the Australian aborigines are, but they are the ones with the heaviest brow ridges these days.

    When we speak about primates then we must speak about Africa.
    When we speak about Africa then we must speak about Negroids.
    So the answer is clear. Negroids have the biggest, tallest and primateslike browridges.

    Post Re: origins of browridges

    the main reason browridges interested me was because my father, brother and myself all have them. we are all blonde, blue eyed and have reasonably long faces. i dont mind my browridges they arent that noticable and give my face some character, ill post some pics of me to demonstrate what i mean.

    Yes, they are visable on the left side picture.

    Robust Australeopithicines had brow ridges as did pongids, so they go back that far. As for Negroes, contrary to what was said above, most don't have brow ridges. Ask any boxer. Brow ridges lead to cuts. White fighters cut above the eyes due to brow ridges. Sometimes blacks with obvious H. erectus ancestry, like Mike Tyson, have brow ridges which are not seen in Negroes, proper. South African Anthropologist at one time attributed this to an "Australoid" ancestor, such as in Coon's line of Broken Hill, Saldanha, Cape Flats, all which had brow ridges.

    Broken Hill and Saldanha aren't convincingly on the line to modern humans, but Cape Flats mignt be a hybrid between such an archaic form and a modern race.

    Post Re: origins of browridges

    Browridges can be prominent or entirely absent in Europeans, depending almost entirely on subracial ancestry IMO. I have modest browridges, but my forehead does not slope much, relatively speaking. It's my experience that Brünns, Fälids, robust Atlantids, and Borrebies have pronounced browridges. Baltids do too, but their features tend to be more rounded so the ridges are not quite as conspicuous. Gracile Meds, Pontids, and Hallstatts seem to have much less pronounced ridges, if any. I don't know about Alpines and Dinarics, though.

    That aren`t negroidish primaticlike browridges. More come on in the Corded/Irano-Afghan type. You are battle axe warrior!

    Yup. I concur. Let's not forget Anglo-Saxons & Troenders. Saxons tend to have moderate to heavier brows, Troenders less so--but still more than gracile Meds. Apparently Troenders often have frontal bosses which are different that browridges...

    As for Alpines and Dinarics--anecdotally speaking I've seen some pretty "browy" Dinarics before but less so with Alpines.
