    West-Baltids - the coastal population of Estonia and Latvia (and maybe Finland) is Brunnoid.

    Besides other features they have marked brow-ridges.

    The woman doesn't have them. She's Nordic.

    I think that she is Nordid and that West-Baltid is one of the varieties of Nordid.

    Marked brow-ridges you say, it sounds like Andrejs Prohorenkovs. What do you think?

    Otherwise, I had West-Baltid as a Tröndelag-like type, basically the same as Coon's plate 32, FIG. 3 in his The Races of Europe, a type that's less delicate of facial features, and broader-headed than the classical Iron Age Nordic.

    I think that Latvian football player Mihails Miholaps fit that description rather well.

    Good for you.

    Suggestion that population of coastal Estonia and Latvia is Nordic racially was rejected by anthropologists.

    They're related to Scandinavian Bruenns.

    He's not a Balt. He's either a Belarussian or Russian.

    He's amore robust version of the Ilmen-Dniepr type:

    Former Lithuanian president Rolandas Paksas. There's a resemblance with Arturas Paulauskas.

    Zone number 9 is West-Baltic, but the map is not very precise. More detailed maps show that the West-Baltic zone is a bit lesser.

    West-Balts are remnants of the original pre-Finnic Baltic population.

    Gaston Backman who studied the Latvian people when he was working in the university of Riga wrote that Latvians from the 10th till 12th centuries were much longer-headed and that they were originally a Nordid people that through time became somewhat "Eastern Europeanised".
