    Are these Frisians good examples of the Anglo-Saxon type?

    I have decided to post pictures of Frisians who I have deemed to be good examples of the Anglo-Saxon race. I haven't been doing this for too long and I'm trying to get a sense of how accurate my classifications are. Do you agree that they are Anglo-Saxon?

    AW: Are these Frisians good examples of the Anglo-Saxon type?

    Can't judge it on these individuals since my knowledge is too narrow but genetical researched found out that the friseans are almost identical with the anglo-saxons of England.

    Thumbs Up Re: Are these Frisians good examples of the Anglo-Saxon type?

    Yes I have read the same myself. But they only tested mitochondrial D.N.A. from individuals whose ancestors had been living in England for atleast two hundred years and I think it only applies to people from East Anglia, where Anglo-saxon settlement was apparently the most thorough. In addition to this, Frisian is the closest language to English. I just wrote a report on this subject for my linguistics course.

    It seems to me from looking on the internet that there are more English-looking people, i.e. people who are phenotypically Anglo-saxon type in Friesland than in England. There are probably more Anglo-saxon types in Great Britain's former colonies: U.S., Canda, and Especially Australia than there are left in Britain. It's a real shame.

    Never a good idea , I have been to England quite often and while London suffers from the same fate as many major cities in Europe, I have seen many AS looking people in England, mostly not in the cities though.
    Chances are the pictures you can see on the interent are selective, just because some areas just have more medial attention.

    Agreed. London has a wide range of people, although there are some Anglo-Saxons, the majority of which are found in rural areas in South-East England.

    This one looks rather like a typical Frisian. I dont think I would mistake him for english.

    I think the only thing about him that doesn't look "English" is his tan and if he lived in England where it is cloudier he would probably look more pale and thus perfectly English. But morphologically I think that he is a very good example of the Anglo-Saxon type.

    I think the boldened highlights what an unreliable way it is too find out.
    Probably also makes no sense whatsoever. Evidence is only credible if it's closely related to Fact

    Mate, Im a Gota, I don't have significant pale skin, despite England being cloudy. England is as Cloudy as the Netherlands.. they are very close in geograpahical location. So try not to judge too loosely based on a few selected individuals.

    You have to come to England, compare East Anglia to the South West etc, and then go to Friesland and compare.. That's the only objective way, the Internet is not objective.

    Exclamation Re: Are these Frisians good examples of the Anglo-Saxon type?

    I don't dispute anything that you said Thruthheim! I never claimed that this observation I made represented the TRUTH. It's simply what it seemed like to me. The ONLY thing I hold to be FACT is that these individuals are racially Anglo-Saxon. Now, if you disagree with me thats great. You live in England. I am an American who has never been to England, so you obviously have much more first hand experience than I do.

    Please don't take me for a simple-minded idiot who thinks that a google image search PROVES conclusively that there are more Anglo-saxon types outside of England than in England. It only seems that way to me. We're having a discussion here. I don't pretend to be an expert with all the answers.

    If I added "IMO" or "IMHO" to the end of every sentence like everyone else seems to do, would that help? People always seem to get angry with me for no good reason. Is my choice of words too strong or something? Tell me. I would honestly like to know.
