View Full Version : Borreby and Baltid

What's the difference between them?
I heard that baltid people have curved, low forehead and a generally straight face, and their eyes are a little small?
Borreby people have a higher, broader, and straight up forehead with also a straight face?

Baltids are reduced and thus much "softer" when it comes to the facial features. Borreby has the typical facial features of Cro-Magnoid.
One could say that Borreby and Dalo-Faelid is the same, with the differences being the skull and perhaps facial index. Same goes with West Baltid (softer Dalo-Faelid) and Baltid.
East Baltids are the ones who have pseudo-Mongoloid features (Lappoid) and a more round face in comparison to Baltid.
According to SNPA Nordish, Baltid is supposed to have a longer face in comparison to Borreby (?).
The Borreby face is typically square in appearance, due mostly to the great mandibular width and the prominence of the frontal and parietal tuberosities, but rounded, more Alpinoid-shaped faces are also common, especially among females. The face is usually short, broad, and somewhat flattish, with a strongly ortognathous profile.
The face is moderately high, and the facial index is mesoprosopic, verging on eury- rather than leptoprosopy.
IMO, all cromagnoid variants are of the same cline displaying lesser or greater degrees of foetilisation, 'alpinisation'/borrealisation (if considered as a process), Incipiencey (incipient mongolism) and general reduction. Generally speaking, adaptive and environmental pressures in concert with sexual selection produced the relative disparities in UP morphology as seen across northern Europe, in particular.
The purported similarities between the Dalo-Faelid variant and the Breunn/Paleo-Atlantid are bizzare, even when considered metrically: I believe these to be the terminus a quem, terminus ad quo variants, taxonomically mutually exclusive from one another, and the progenitor variants of the relative cline as it moves North West to North East. In other words, whilst the Bruenn/Paleo-Atlantid variant probably inhabited a much wider range at one time, it is, for all morphological intents and purposes, now fairly isolated to the British Isles. The Dalo-Faelid variant, on the other hand, experiencing a much wider range, became exposed to a greater quantity as well as dynamic quality of adaptive and environmental pressures in concert with sexual selection - giving rise to the morphological off-shoots that some have recognised as entirely separate variants: Borreby/NordAlpinid, West/East Baltid.
