    Lightbulb The Saxon Racial Type

    Eyes : light-mixed (grey)
    Hair color : dark blond
    High statured : 177 cm
    Nose : convex
    Ancestry: German


    ''In Saxony, Thuringia, and throughout eastern Germany, the racial situation is somewhat different. As an example of a relatively conservative Saxon population, we may study the inhabitants of Questenberg, a village located in an isolated valley of the southern Harz Mountains of Saxony.

    The Questenbergers have a mean cephalic index of 82.4, which is low for eastern Germany, and the head size is intermediate between that of the South Germans and of those in the northwest. Compared to the southern Germans, these Saxons are very light in skin, hair, and eye color; the predominant hair color is a medium brown while the eyes are mostly pure light or light-mixed, and dark eyes are limited to about 5 per cent.

    The noses of the Questenbergers are as a rule high and narrow, and frequently convex. These Saxons fall as a group into the Noric racial type; brunet Dinarics are rather uncommon here, as are morphologically typical Alpines.

    It seems most reasonable to regard these people as the descendants of Iron Age Nordics who have been partially brachycephalized by Alpine and Dinaric admixture.''

    Essentially she is Nordid-Alpine.

    Anyway, the Faelid race in North Germany is represented by its subbrachycephalic variety, the West Elbian type and always low-vaulted , which makes it very unlikely that Borreby or Dinarids are to be invoked as explanation for its weak round-headedness(average LBI 81.5;LHI 71;blood gene q-frequency 7-8%), neither of course EB, since mainly distributed thoughout Niederdeutschland west of the limes sorabicus.

    The relation to the Götalandic type in Scandinavia is a compelling one, considering that even for Sweden this type is in its classical form not as widely present as usually claimed, further of rather late development(Bronze Age) and with the Continental Faelid who brought both the Megalithic Culture and agriculture up north as forerunner.

    Götalandics were at their peak during the explosive Migration Age, swarming and diluting the type on the Continent.
    The West Elbians approach, according to Bertil Lundman in Raser och folkstockar i Baltoskandia , the Southwestern Scandinavian or Skagerack folk stock with its predominantly Götalandics. Divergent evolution gracilized the Faelids on the Scandinavian peninsula, while the more proper cromagnoid faculties of the Faelids on the main land lead to brachycephaly as in most UP-derivations, the Alpinid component was not substantial as agency but perhaps in sustaining this new development.

    We shall briefly survey the anthropological relations in northwest Germany and Scandinavia somewhat before 2000 B.C. This part of Europe nowadays constitutes the nuclear area of the Faelish and Scando-Nordid races. To the northwest of the Corded-Ceramic people, there lived in Germany the Megalith people. The Megalith people of Germany were typically long-skulled and low-skulled, and in relation to face and nose rather Faelish in race. On the Scandinavian peninsula we find among groups, who perhaps had not yet been Indo-Europeanized, likewise long and low crania, but narrower faces and noses.
    These two groups, the one in northwest Germany and the other in Scandinavia, were thus racially related to one another, as well as to the blond proto-Indo-Europeans. We can perhaps consider the three groups as three subraces of the Nordid race - namely, the Faelish subrace, the Scando-Nordid subrace, and also the long- and high-skulled East-Nordid subrace. The East-Nordid should be regarded as a subrace of the Nordid race, since it resembled the other two subraces in so many anthropological traits. The region of origin of all three subraces evidently bordered on one another.

    I am thinking that she could be classified as Troender....



    AWAR :

    ''The Trønder is a variable racial strain, ranging in type from large, Irish-looking Brünn individuals and tall, slender Battle-Axe survivors, to almost completely Nordic populations.''

    ''It is a slender type, although not as slender as the local Hallstatt Nordic, and its bones are larger and heavier than what is typically Nordic. Due to a strong sexual dimorphism, Trønder females are seldom correspondingly big-boned. The head form is high mesocephalic (c.i. typically 78-80; with the exeption of the Hardanger type, which is dolicho-mesocephalic), and the face is of considerable length. The forehead is very high, and at the same time both broader and much less sloping than that of the Hallstatt Nordic. Frontal bosses, a non-Nordic trait, are frequently found, and the temporal region is much fuller. In addition, the transitions from frontal to temporal and frontal to parietal regions are smooth and difficult to find, whereas on the Nordic head they are clearly marked. ''


    ''The nose is typically straight or CONVEX ''

    ''light-mixed blue is the predominant eye color. The hair is wavy and ranges in color from brown to golden blond''


    Volksdeutscher :


    ''Trönder is the same as Flodström's Sveatyp, which is thought to be the most frequent Nordid type in Germany''

    http://www.forums.skadi.net/showthread.php?t=7506


    Anyway, Trønder , Saxons and Faelids could be the same thing : a mixture of Cro-magnons UPs Brunns and and Battle-Axe Hallstatts.

    Carleton S. Coon (The Races of Europe)
    Anglo-Saxon

    Description:

    This tall, broad-shouldered and characteristically blond type is - morphologically - an overgrown Hallstatt Nordic, with a large head and face, as well as more than average-sized hands and feet. The face is long, and shows a marked skeletal relief, giving it a somewhat rugged and angular impression. The nose is large, very leptorrhine, and usually straight, with a convex minority. The lips are rather thin.

    The Anglo-Saxon type is over-all mesocephalic, with a minor tendency towards brachycephaly undoubtedly caused by the Upper Palaeolithic strains. Likewise, the forehead is high and the browridges heavy, and the jaw is prominent. Both Brünn and Borreby features are visible.

    The Anglo-Saxon hair color range runs from golden blond to medium brown, with the latter in the majority. There is a minor tendency towards rufosity, but much less so than is the case with the Trønder type, with which the Anglo-Saxon may be compared in many respects. The eyes are pure blue or light-mixed.

    I don't think she is central nordish...

    I guess Subnordid or Norid.
