    Post "The Races of Europe" - Questions

    I just finished my reading/note-taking of The Races of Europe, and I've got a handful of questions. Basically, I just want to make sure I understand some key points.
    Please help me out if I've got anything wrong!

    1) When Coon states that the Danubians represent a northern branch of the same racial group which entered Europe from North Africa through the southwestern avenue, is he referring to the "Mediterranean proper" type? If not, which type is he referring to?

    2) When discussing copper/bronze age Greece Coon notes that between 2500-2000BC there were 3 elements in the population:
    A) Neolithic Mediterranean: Does he mean "Mediterranean proper" or the megalithic type? Also, are these mediterraneans the same sort which became the Minoans on Crete?
    B) Danubians: Were these essentially the Mycenaeans?

    3) He then states there were 3 more elements introduced:
    A) Corded People: Were these the Ionians/Dorrians?
    B) "Divine Born" Foreigners: This is the one that really stumps me. Is he talking about a Corded/Danubian blend, ie: Nordic?

    4) Am I correct in stating Coons theory thusly: At the end of the Bronze Age Corded and Danubian types blended into each other resulting in the Nordic type, which inhabited "the immense stretch of territory from Germany and Austria to the Altai Mountains". It was within this group that Indo-European cultures and languages developed.

    Sure, it's his theory.

    In fact Nordics (in his sense of the term) were *formed* on the basis of Danubians. Yet they differ from Danubians, as their cranium height is low in comparison with Danubians, not to mention BAs.
