    Post Zygomatic Arches

    A friend of mine, who looks totally northern European (blond hair, blue eyes, tall stature, ruddy skin ...) has, what I would term, an oval face (not the square, long look of a dolichocephalic, but also not round as in a brachycephalic; in other words, his face is somewhat long). He does not have high or pronounced cheek bones (in front of/below the eyes), but somewhat pronounced zygomatic bones (on the side of his head, right in front of the ears).

    Is this typical of any Nordish types?

    Has anyone seen anything comparable?

    According to your description your friend seems to be some kind of a gracile Nordic - Hallstatt or West Baltic maybe. As for zygomatic arches I think they can vary and it wouldn't affect the classification a lot. Do you have a photo we can see?

    Unfortunately, I don't have a picture.

    But, prominent zygomatic arches could easily be construed as high cheek bones (the cheek, zygomatic arch is one contiguous bone).

    The Cro-Magnon people found in France all, or at least most, had the type of zygomatic arches you are describing. This Cro-Magnon type is regarded almost as a family type sometimes but comes closest to the Brunn type of Coon. They can have the pigmentation you describe.

    I grant you, the zygomatic arches are pronounced in Cro-Magnons, but they had disharmonic faces and broad cheek-bones as well, meaning that the faces were broad, although this is a characteristic of broad-headed types. The Cro-Magnon people were dolichocephalic, though. The Brünn type of Coon has closer affinities with Combe-Capelle man. The latter have harmonic faces without the broad, high cheek-bones of the Cro-Magnon, who were very tall, 5'10" - 6'4", whereas the Combe-Capelle man stood 5'3".

    Long legs and a broad chest are also typical of Cro-Magnons, but we are probably talking about individual traits, not completely preserved types.

    I don't see anything wrong with the picture of the Cro(at)-Mag Sure, maybe they were all brunet. I've read at some now defunct anthropology forums that Nordoids(blond hair, blue eyes) are only 5,000 years old. But that's off topic now

    Coon uses Combe-Capelle to introduce the Mediterranean which he says appeared just before the Cro-Magnons in western France. In other words, Combe-Capelle was a Mediterranean. The disharmonic look is exactly what we are trying to identify. The Cro-Magnons in southern France, during the Upper Paleolithic may have been brunet, I really don't know, but, the people who most resemble them as a population are the western Norwiegens who also most closely resemble the fossil Brunn people.

    For a moment there I thought you were Frans3108

    Do you mean Paleo-Atlantids? Probably not.
