    Post Guess Game: Which of those 2 Groups is Germanic?

    Ok, two random** groups from two different countries. One country is Germanic, another is not (NE Europe).

    Which one is Germanic, which one is not?

    What are the countries in question?

    I might be wrong.... I am not sure anymore. The thing is, these pics have been hand-picked... and are thus a biased representation - so it would be difficult to choose.

    In the first case 12 phenotypes were chosen out of 19, in the second - 12 out of 18, and in the both cases the most typical ones, without extremes.

    BTW, I said it wrong - both can be Germanic, both can be non-Germanic :) Just guess the countries.

    Fair enough then. I'd be interested to see the outcome.

    The first link's people look predominantly Nordic. They must be from the Baltic perimeter (Scandinavia, Baltic states & immediate surrounds... ).

    No, the first one is not necessarily Scandinavia. It could be the Baltic or even NW Russia, northern Poland or northern Germany.

    Undecided on the second link....
