    Here's an interesting bunch. Where do you think they're from?

    The majority look Eastern European to me.
    The Baltic states perhaps?

    I just want to point out that they could be from anywhere but I'm thinking Estonia.

    The second from the left in the middle row could pass as a Western European, but the others look East European.
    As providenje has taken Estonia, I'll take Latvia.

    But as you can see, there are no East Baltic or Neo-Danubian elements in them.

    On the other hand, there is Nordic, Brunn and Borreby for sure. So what makes them East European? If not their phenotypes, then perhaps their facial features?

    The last guy looks Noric, and maybe southeast European, but the rest?

    With the exception of the last guy, I say Ireland or Scotland.

    Just a guess more than anything particular.
    I'm no expert at sub-racial classification, I just know the very basics.
    If I seen them here in Scotland, I would think they were a foreign team as they just don't look native to this country.
    They don't look particulary Southern European and not really what I imagine SCandinavians would look like in general so I concluded Eastern European a fairly safe bet.

    I don't think they are British or Irish (but please feel free to make me look silly by saying they are )

    They definitely look Eastern or middle European to me. Czech, Slovak or Polish I'd say.

    I do see a fair bit of Britishness in them, whatever you may take that to mean, especially in numbers 4, 6, and 8 (that's going from top left to bottom right), and in a few others to a lesser extent. You know what? I'm going to change my guess to Australian.
