    Question Is Clint Eastwood A Good Example of a Keltic Nordic?

    Do you think Clint Eastwood fits in well with the Keltic Nordic Category?

    Eastwood is certainly Nordid in the broader sense of the word. To me, he doesn't seem to be an 'archetypal' Kelt. The main points of deviation are that he seems to be higher-skulled than the Keltic 'norm' (although this can be tough to tell from just photos unless the example is extreme in either direction), he doesn't have that Keltic nose which is quite prominant and often arched, and he looks to be overall too rugged and large-faced.

    To me, he trends in the direction of the Brunn/Nordic blend. This might give an Anglo-Saxon or Tronder appearance. However, if my hunch is near to the truth, I could by all means see the Nordic contribution to the blend in Eastowood's case to be of Keltic inspiration as opposed to the Osterdal type.

    I looked at several pics of him from the web, including some from when he was younger. It seems as if the Brunn impression has become stronger as he has aged while he appeared more Nordid in his younger days. I have seen this many times before where men (less so with women) seem to take on more of a UP look as they age.

    He looks extermely like my father, and for years people joked they were twins
    Then 2 weeks ago, my father met him in Loch Lomond (he was promoting his new film) and he watched my father playing squash.
    He spoke with my father afterwards about various things, and he seemed a really nice guy.

    So after all these years, my father finally met his "doppelganger"

    I agree with Dalonord, a Brunn/Nordid mix (probably Keltic)

    He even looks closer to this Keltic Nordic than a pure Brunn.

    Post Nordid

    Eastwood has a Classic Nordid phenotype. I think that he is Nordid in the strictest sense of the word. Typical for England.

    Well, I was wondering if he might show a Keltic/Brunn combination. According to Coon of course, the Anglo-Saxon type is a stabilized blend of the Brunn and the Hallstatt. I'm not convinced of this yet but let's play along. Would not a mixture of Brunn and Keltic produce a similar look? I realize the differences between Kelts and Hallstatts but perhaps in conjunction with a burly Brunn element, the end result may be similar.

    Thank you all for your responses. I should like to think he is predominately Keltic with maybe a bit of Brunn or Tronder or perhaps just Kelt on its own. I should like to point out that the stock photos of the Keltic types with the extremely long noses were probably chosen by the author to illustrate how a people from a distinctly Nordic area could exibit noses that you might only expect in Southern Europe or Dinaric influenced areas to the south east. Although an Englishman or Irishman might not give a spit take at seeing someone like those two examples, I don't think they represent the norm to be compared to each classification we make here. They might more represent the potential of the Keltic type, that would be unheard of in an Alpine or East Baltic type, but not the average. One just has to look at Keltic examples of Hugh Grant, Meg Ryan, or Mel Gibson to see that none have freakishly prominant beaks.
