    Fun Map: What Europe might have looked like racially 15,000 years ago

    This is a fun little race map, and shouldn't be taken too seriously. I guesstimated what Europe might have looked like racially 15,000 years ago.




    All the red, blue, and yellow colors are exposed land; what would be England's coast today was 1000 km from the existing coast back then (I goofed on the Caspian Sea, and it's colored red, although it was a body of water just like today).

    The white areas are ice.

    I determined the boundaries of the races according to the boundaries of the biomes, so I put Nordics as occupying the entire plains region of Europe, while Dinarics occupied the entire mountain region of the south. In other words, a race best adapted to living in the mountains, another to living in the plains, etc. Any other species of animal would also separate into different races according to these big regional biomes (a forest area, a plains area, a mountain area, the important stuff). Between the Balkans and the northern plains there's a plains region (the Hungarian plain?), sorrounded by the Slovakian and Rumanian mountain ranges. This mixed region of plains and mountains wasn't clear cut to me, so I left it as unresolved. It's the blue colored area between the Dinarics and Nordics.

    Any fun feedback on this much appreciated. Enjoy!

    P.S.: Were the Balearic islands, Crete and Cyprus inhabited 15,000 years ago? I'd really like to know about that.

    AW: Fun little race map

    15.000 years ago things looked quite different, many of todays types didnt existed or existed only as individuals in a wider variation more or less, especially Dinaroid to give an example.
    In fact, 15.000 years ago (still Ice Age influence) things would have been much more simple than that with just basic Cromagnoid (more in the North and colder areas) and Aurignacid/Capellid (Leptodolichomorphic, more in the Southern and warmer areas).

    So, such a map would make much more sense in the Neolithicum and especially after the Iron Age, because before that things were not that stable, everything on the move, no dense populations, racial types not fully stabilised etc. Its just erroneous to conclude things were as they are that time ago, in fact, in many areas of Europe there werent even the same climate and f.e. trees at that time, much of Europe being practically uninhabitated.
