    They are Russian and Slavic, that is why I think that Nord-Med-Slav scheme is not quite correct.

    "Incorrect. Alexander the Great had brown hair and one blue and one black eye (Malalas Chronogr., 195.2)"


    Yes, I've also heard that Alexander had heterochromia. Not really sure about the hair though, but haven been to Greece myself, it is kind of hard to believe the blonde thing. Greece doesn't have a very large number of blue eyed people either but then again its not that hard to find one nonetheless.

    Another equally, if not more viable explanantion is that they aren't 'detecting' anything at all. There is no such thing as a 'Slavic look'. If the 'Slavic look' is equivalent to East-Baltic or "Ladogan" admixture, then most Finns, Balts, Northern Swedes, and a good number of Germans have it.

    Re the Slavs: it's too bad Polak is not around, he's adamant that there's such a thing as a Slavic look (and he's got genetic data to back up his assertions).

    He has noticed that when he travels through Europe he gets easily recognized as a Slav.

    My own experience is similar, I find that Slavs have well defined physiognomy.

    Again, read Polak's informative entries on Slavs:

    I too think there is a Slavic look. I am half Polish, and I strongly resemble my dad, who is fully Polish. A number of people classified me, all saying I looked Scandanavian, but Polak rightly picked up on my Polish heritage, even though I hadn't told him about it. Also, I've been asked by a number of people if I am Russian, or Eastern European. When I told them they were on the right track, and asked them what tipped them off, they simply said that I "looked" Russian/Eastern European. I don't know what causes the look though. Perhaps this deserves to be a split thread.

    I've had similar experiances. Whenever I visit Russia or encounter people from Russia, I'm always being mistaken for a native-born. I don't know my exact phenotype, but I have been told by many people from Eastern Europe that I look very much like a Ukrainian. This would make sense since I am of Ukrainian decent.

    I am sure there is such a look no matter if Slavic (not linguistic but geneticaly Slavic) person is nordic, subnordic/alpine, dinaric its very probably that will be share similar phenotype. I am tring to find a clue and stared this thread for such purposes. http://www.forums.skadi.net/showthread.php?t=5395 I supse that the most specific are regular eyes rather large and light, (closer to Ural also sometimes outer parts goes up, which is of course not Slavic trait but usualy peple not familar says so beacause Uralics are Russians linguitisticaly) Other trait is slightly rounded jaw. The whole face is rather long but slightly round and delicate with no sharp edges. Down part of the face is regular and not extremly long. Also distance beetwen nose and lips are medium and do not tend to be extreme. Noses are rather thin, stright and not extremly long or short. As far as i remember from nordish.com Slavic girls share frequently pedomorphism. Also the differnces betwen phenotypes of males and femeles tend to be greater then among Germans for example. According to nordish.com and it could be true for most of Slavic types the malars are only moderately projecting, especially when compared to those of East Baltics and Ladogans. And again usualy people not familiar call such a Ladogan trait as Slavic what is not true. As far as i know Northern Germans share similar trait so it could be general nordic (danubian?) or around baltic trait.

    I have attached link to composite picture of Slavic girls from my region http://www.forums.skadi.net/attachme...achmentid=4466 and two pictures of rather not "Slavic looking" German girls from Berlin.(but of course such faces could also be found among Slavs)

    That right cosmo Both are from Berlin in Germany and i only wanted to show the extreme un-Slavic traits in in face edges, eyes and jaw and distance betwen nose and lips just to compare with composite picture of Slavic from the link.
