    Where Do These EARS Come From, and Why So Prominent in British Isles

    These ears seem to be glued to every possible subrace and combination of subraces in the Isles: from AngloSaxons, to N. Atlantids/Atlantids, UP combos, KeltoSaxons, Kelts, SubNordids, and even the Med. elements. Not that everyone in Britain has them, but the prominence of overall ear size and even the tops of the ear hanging WELL below the Frankfort Plane are very common (almost to where the lobe is in horizontal agreement with the lower lip): Why? Where do they come from? It is something - at least in prominence - that is relatively isolated to the isles, and not all that present on the continent. Could it be the end result of a dominant trait that evidences significant admixture between the various subraces that have dominated the area over the course of history? When do these ears appear in the royal line? Which subrace do you feel was the progenitor of the 'British Ear'???

    Interested in your thoughts.

I assess the power of a will by how much resistance, pain, torture it endures and knows how to turn to its advantage; I do not account the evil and painful character of existence a reproach to it, but hope rather that it will one day be more evil and painful than hitherto..."

    This flat-eared Anglo-Saxon is not happy to hear that.....



    I do not know. I have seen Baltids with ears like satellite dishes. Maybe it's a Brunn-ish thing.

    I will try to notice more in future, and pay attention to British ears. I know that the British have big noses, because of the Keltic aspect but also because of a dearth of stocky snub-nosed CroMags who have so prevalent elsewhere in Europe.

    BTW my ears are flat.

    Those ears could be the result of centuries of inbreeding.


    @ Suut: You seem to have a fixation on odd-looking individuals today.

    My ears look nothing like that. I think it's perhaps an exaggeration to say many people in Britain have ears like that. It's just a feature restircted to horse-faced English nobility, I think. It's also worth pointing out that Charles is significantly German...

    Alright. 2 down, 60,600,000 to go. Well, here - let me define 'prominent' as 10% of the U.K vs. 2% of North/North west Europe having ears like this. - this is probably a like ratio.

    What is odd is that you (Glynd and O.E.N.) are both from the South where I always noticed these ears to be most present.

    £1,000 to the individual that can post a picture of a group of Brits with these ears.

    Ah the old "jug ears"! It's a Keltic Nordic trait, for sure, which is ultimately Dinarid in origin. You will find these ears wherever you find Keltic Nordics. It just so happens that the British Isles have a lot of Keltic Nordics.

    The Roman Nobility which was significantly Keltic Nordid in race shows these same ears:

    Funny thread! This feature is on Irish sculptures and artwork taken from monasteries during Viking times. Yes, I've noticed it too, but don't fit that look because my ears are flat and nose is small. I've got a high vaulted blockhead and thick neck. Hats often don't fit me, so it's funny when they say 'one-size fits all'.
