    Question Where to Learn About Racial Types & Racial Classification?

    Does anyone know of a good European physical anthropology website that features all of the sub-races of Europe, providing descriptions, history and photographs of each racial type? I've found the Society for Nordish Physical Anthropology (www.nordish.com), but am looking for a site that covers the broad spectrum of all European sub-races, (i.e. alpine, dinaric, atlanto-med, etc.) If anybody knows of an informative site, please share. Thanks.

    powerless to separate ourselves from her, and powerless to penetrate beyond her.

    Significance of Racial Types & Racial Classification

    I'm also interested in learning about the racial classification systems. Can somebody explain what Nordid, Alpinid etc. are? Are these groups confined to certain areas, or can there be a 'Nordid', for example, in any European country? Better yet, is there an e-Book I could download?

    Re: Racial Classification

    Skadi itself has an enormous library on Anthropology:
    http://forum.forums.skadi.netdisplay.php?f=70

    This contains works of a lot of anthropologists (e.g. not only McCulloch)
    Personally I think you can find here more on anthropology than anywhere else on the web.

    Also if you are looking for summaries, etc. you can check out here various posts of Skadi members that have made comparisons, stated ideas etc.

    Additional links you can also find there.

    Hopes this answers your question a bit

    Smile Re: Racial Classification

    Thank you RedKack and Somerled, the links you've provided are superb, but as you can imagine this is somewhat overwhelming for a first-timer ... I hope I'm not troubling any one in asking that you give me a short summary.

    On the site I didn't manage to find anything regarding other groups, namely Armenids, Mongoloids etc.

    Can some one give a brief outline of these racial groups, their characteristics (physical) and their geographic location? Where did they come from and where are they today?

    I've also noticed that when people ask to be classified on this forum, they can be classified as anything from Alpinid to Dinarid, to Uralid ... and this is generally without knowing where they come from ... does this mean that there are Alpinids in Brazil and Serbia for example ...

    I realize that I'm being a real pest ... but any one's contribution is much appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Re: Racial Classification

    Armenoids are a Middle Eastern type. They are ancient and can be seen in Mesopotamian sculpture. They look like this;

    No, Look it up yourself like I did..(you lazy *****)...

    Just look in to the Skadi threads, this will help you out.

    SNPA only does so-called Nordisch types (from McCulloch, not meaning the Nordish type in narrower sense, German for Nordid/Nordic)

    However I find SNPA somewhat incomplete too...

    About Armenids and Mongolids, Agrippa has made some threads you can find them too in: http://forum.forums.skadi.netdisplay.php?f=70

    Yes, phenotype can theoretically be found everywhere if there once was a forfather (or mother) wich had the same phenotype or a connected one. (e.g. a Nordid forfather and a Mediterranid forfather can give for example an Atlantid looking offspring)

    Indeed you are a real pest..but don't be bothered with it, since the question is the key to get an answer

    Racial Classification Method

    I was wondering what tool(s) and methods one would employ to take the various measurements required for racial classification. Are all number values expressed in millimeters, etc.? Thanks

    Significance of Racial Types

    I have a fair idea about what the different types are and look like.

    But could someone tell me what they mean?

    What does it mean, for the individual involved, to be a Hallstatt rather than a Bruenn?

    Also, during my reading of some of the classifications I noticed how arbitrary some of them seem to be.

    Some women posted for classification get non Germanic classification. But, to my untutored eye at least, they have some of the same features that are in the most Beautiful Germanic Women category.

    How important are these classifications to get right?
