- Sample :
- Brief anthropological analysis :
- Type 1 : Intermediate complexion (black eyes though light eyes are not uncommon, black hair, tanned skin, ...), leptomorphic, arched convex nose (droopy tip), close-set eyes, full lips, deeply drawn lines around the oral cavity
~ Dinaromorphic Mediterranean
I've now thought to get rid of my antiquated terminology in favour of more simple items but I'm a romantic so I still use it. Basically speaking, we have got lepto against brachy. Those are the lepto individuals from the sample : the type is mostly masculine with very few women being elongated.
Some individuals look plainly European (Italian, Iberian, ...) while others show features rather associated with the Middle-East.
- Type 2 : Intermediate complexion (varied eyes, black hair, ...), brachymorphic, coarse features, large face, massive and low-rooted nose that can get convex, full lips, somehow wide-set eyes
Brachymorphic types seem to be quite widespread in this sample. Convex-nosed types dubbed "Armenoid" might be more typical. The least that can be said is that those people differ from local Muslim Algerians.
