Nordic-Mediterrean type of E.A. Hooton & C. W. Dupertius from “Physicial anthropology of Ireland”

Filed under: Uncategorized — Ariets @ 8:17 pm

The Nordic Mediterranean type is 0.60 years above mean age, ranking third. It is virtually at the all-Irish mean of weight, and, in fact, nearly average in most bodily dimensions.
The chest index is somewhat elevated, signifying a relatively deep and narrow thorax. However, the Keltic type exhibits this feature in a much more pronounced degree. The longest heads in Ireland are found in this Nordic Mediterranean type. Head breadth, though narrow, exceeds that of other dolichocephalic types, except the Pure Mediterraneans. Head height is superior to that of the Keltics and the Pure Mediterraneans. The length-height index is very low and the breadth-height index high, as in other long-headed types. Face breadth in this type is far inferior to that of the round-headed types, but higher that that of the other dolichocephals. The cephalo-facial index reaches its Irish maximum. Total face height is well above the Irish average, as is also the total facial index. Upper face height is also high. Naturally both total facial and upper facial indices are on the high side and align this type with the other dolichocephalic leptoprosopic types and with the Dinaric type (which has been selected for long narrow noses). In the Nordic Mediterranean type the nose is about of average length, but a little more that ordinary wide. Hence the nasal index is somewhat above the Irish mean, but it is exactly the same as that of the Predominantly Nordic type and really differs very little from the mean nasal index of any other of the long-headed types.

Although skin color in the Nordic Mediterranean’s is darker than in any other Irish type save the small Pure Mediterranean, yet 86.2 per cent of this type have pink skins. Pronounced vascularity is deficient; freckles are slightly less than ordinarily common. The modal hair form is low waved (as in every other Irish type). Hair color is much darker than in any other sizable type, with 4.7 percent of black hair and 52.4 per cent of dark brown. Nevertheless, more that one third of the type has medium brow hair. All of the eyes are mixed -81.3 per cent blue-brown. Mixed eyes are a little more heavily pigmented in this type that in any other. Yet 74.7 per cent of the mixed eyes are recorded as “pronounced light” or “very pronouncedly light”. The most prevalent iris patter is “diffuse” or without marked patterning (by far the most common Nordic Mediterranean). Brow ridges are a little larger that ordinary; foreheads least often high, and a little more sloping that in any other except the Keltic type. Nasal depressions tend toward pronounces depth. The nasal profile is a little oftener straight that convex as in all Irish types except the Dinaric.

Tooth loss, wear, and caries in the Nordic Mediterranean type are somewhat above the Irish average possibly because of an elevation in mean age. Frontal projection of the molars is slightly high, but pronounced lateral projection is less than average. The same structure applies to prominence of gonial features. Pronounced temporal fullness is well below the Irish average. Occipital protrusion, as in other dolichocepalic types, is inclined to be marked. Lamboid flattening is very common, but its occurrence hardly deviates from that of the total Irish series. Occipital flattening is deficient.

Slavic identity and music #2

Filed under: -Audio, Uncategorized — Ariets @ 10:58 pm

In 2012 Donatan along with Percival, as well as in co-operation with loads of rapers of polish hip hop scene relased disc called “Równonoc. Słowiańska dusza” as a mixture between hiphop and folk music with highly panslavic/heathen affect. Being one of most  Slavophilistic cd widely know (thanks to commercial succes of it in Poland). Also as a matter of fact Donatan is going to represent Poland in Eurovision fest this year with song  “My Słowianie” (we the Slavs).

In 2010 Hammer of Hate recorded a split with Tormentia and Gammadion with the song . “Słowianie” (Slavs). In same time Gammadion had “Strażnicy lechickiej krwi” (Guardians of Lechtic blood), “Słońce niepokonane” (unbeatable sun) czy “Biali bogowie powrócą” (white gods will return).

Same time Horytnica relased songs “Słowiańska Armia Pracy” ( Slavic Labour Army in “Głos patriotów”) and”Cedynia 972″ (“Historie walk o wolność”).

With time many things has been changing, ie. layout, amout of articles and downloadable files.Also my gallery here have become much bigger. Thank you all for reading it through all these years…Ups, I just realised that this may sound a little bit as ‘good bye’, but don’t worry I will keep this blog run.

The Samurai And The Ainu

Filed under: Asia, Physical anthropology, Uncategorized — Ariets @ 7:55 pm

Findings by American anthropologist C. Loring Brace, University of Michigan, will surely be controversial in race conscious Japan. The eye of the predicted storm will be the Ainu, a “racially different” group of some 18,000 people now living on the northern island of Hokkaido. Pure-blooded Ainu are easy to spot: they have lighter skin, more body hair, and higher-bridged noses than most Japanese. Most Japanese tend to look down on the Ainu.

Brace has studied the skeletons of about 1,100 Japanese, Ainu, and other Asian ethnic groups and has concluded that the revered samurai of Japan are actually descendants of the Ainu, not of the Yayoi from whom most modern Japanese are descended. In fact, Brace threw more fuel on the fire with:

“Dr. Brace said this interpretation also explains why the facial features of the Japanese ruling class are so often unlike those of typical modern Japanese. The Ainu-related samurai achieved such power and prestige in medieval Japan that they intermarried with royality and nobility, passing on Jomon-Ainu blood in the upper classes, while other Japanese were primarily descended from the Yoyoi.”

The reactions of Japanese scientists have been muted so. One Japanese anthropologist did say to Brace,” I hope you are wrong.”

The Ainu and their origin have always been rather mysterious, with some people claiming that the Ainu are really Caucasian or proto-Caucasian – in other words, “white.” At present, Brace’s study denies this interpretation.

Comment. Fringe anthropology notes many “white” races in strange places; viz., the white Indians of Panama and the Mandans of the American West.
