    Post Classify Ernst Jnger



    A typical leptosome and predominantly Nordid in the classical sense? Long head, low skull, concavo-convex nose and sloping forehead. Slim build. His eyes have been described as light blue and his head handsome like that of a Roman emperor.

    I thought of that, more similar to the sharp-featured Irishman in Coon's plate 29 of "The Races of Europe". It is interesting that the type exist in Germany. It also makes sense because he is born in Heidelberg, which I guess can be classed as Southwestern Germany, where Coon found the most Nordid Germans. Coon stated that besides in theBritish Isles, the type is a major element in Flanders and the Frankish country in southwestern Germany. Ernst Jnger did resemble some living Englishmen.

    "Keltic Nordic" yes (Nordid with slight Dinaroid strain). Very progressive individual in every respect.

    I was thinking Keltic too--although perhaps a bit more "craggy" (stong chin, heavier brows) than one might expect to find in Britain. Cro-Mag strain maybe?

    Keltic Nordid, (Nordid slight mixed with some dinarid and or mediterranean strains), most common type throughout the BeNeLux and SW-Germany.

    I thought of that, more similar to the sharp-featured Irishman in Coon's plate 29 of "The Races of Europe". It is interesting that the type exist in Germany. It also makes sense because he is born in Heidelberg, which I guess can be classed as Southwestern Germany, where Coon found the most Nordid Germans.

    Coon maybe classified most North German Nordid-Borreby mixes as plain Borreby, which would explain this statement/interpretation.

    However, based on personal observations I noticed a certain frequency of what Coon called Osterdal in Southern Germany:
    The original Hallstatt Nordic, smaller-headed and finer boned than (b) or (c); occurs in many populations as individuals, typical only in Sweden and in the eastern valleys of Norway.
    All of these features and besides that often not very projecting chins but in combination with the most typical Nordid pigmentation (example: Swedes)

    Christian Olsson is such a fully leptosomic Nordid variant I have in mind:
