    I've always considered "Med" to be a European phenotype, which other groups can sometimes look like (because of ancestral reasons) but not as a whole. In other words, you'll have people outside of Europe and European influenced areas who appear Med but whose co-ethnics are mostly not Med. For example, MENA people. Most MENA don't look like true meds, but individually, there are quite a few who fit into the Med spectrum.



    Med is in between North Europe and MENA. In fact, that's how it should be defined because that's how it looks in ever plot I've seen.

    No it's not vast majority of phenotypes although I consider it a pseudo science derives from the seas

    Mediterranean sea = Mediterranean
    North Sea = Nordic
    Baltic Sea = Baltid
    Euxinos Pontos/Black Sea = Pontid
    Celtic Sea = Keltid
    Aegean Sea = Aegean Med
    Levantine Sea = Levatine
    Atlantic sea = Atlantid
    Ionian Sea --- interesting one indeed but resembles mainland Greek
    Adriatic Sea ---- another very interesting one
    European Inland - largely Alpine

    What Im trying to get at that people's race tends to gravitate towards the seas

    South Europeans are in the first place Mediterranean by Geography.

    Since the Mediterranean region includes both parts of Europe,Africa and the Middle East
    ,North Africans for example are Mediterraneans as well which does not mean they are the same
    people with South Euros.




    If one wants to be more precise one could distinguish South Euros as European Mediterranean.

    Of course there is some shared things between Non European and European Mediteranean
    people.

    The issue is currently sensitive because of the abnormal conditions established by the
    mass migrations from North Africans into Europe.

    But one should relax and rather consider the history in the past

    There have been Phoenicians in Europe and Greeks and Romans in North Africa,so
    its normal that some things will be shared.

    Then there is the Med phenotype which is a phenotype of the White(Caucasian) race

    Of course not all South Europeans are Med by phenotype
    The Talmud tells us that the only language the Torah could be translated into elegantly is Greek.

    It is a European phenotype since it can be found throughout all of Europe

    For example one can find Med types also among natives of Ireland,Wales,Scottland and in Germany..
    and its morphologically fairly similar to Nordic types except the differences in pigmentation.

    No there is Med types among Middle Easterners and North African too but one should consider Menas who
    have Med phenotypes are basicly still white caucasian in that sense,they are distinguished by language,culture
    and genetics mainly and also one shouldn't forget that many North Africans have extra SSA infuence in their phenotypes

    Physical anthropology is a pseudo science, we all know that. A very look alike Portuguese and Lebanese can have very little genetic affinity. Phenotypes matter socially, we can't see one's autosomal DNA test but their facial features and body.

    Adriatic was used as another name for Dinaric.

    In short geographical based name are highly misleading but They are easy to remember.
    1)Alpine,Dinaric,Mediterranean,Baltic and Nordic should be enough to identify most Europeans.
    2) These are not races (this is not Tolkien), just recurrent typologies in Human variation.
    3) Dont use old typologies to justify National looks.
    4) Avoid dubious and little documented types: Paleo-Atlantid, Mtebid, Atlantid, North Pontid..etc also avoid the Swedish (-id) suffix when possible (use -ic).
    5) CM is not a type. No author ever used it as a type.

    Personally I think that North Africans i see (I guess mainly from Marocco) are Metrically much more Mediterranean looking than the average North Italian. Obviously most Moroccans have an African influence while Italians an European one.
    They have very long, and very narrow vaults = marked dolicocephaly..
    Narrow faced with very fine features. Most Italians compared have larger and thicker skulls denoting a stronger proto-european and Alpine/Dinaric element .
    1)Alpine,Dinaric,Mediterranean,Baltic and Nordic should be enough to identify most Europeans.
    2) These are not races (this is not Tolkien), just recurrent typologies in Human variation.
    3) Dont use old typologies to justify National looks.
    4) Avoid dubious and little documented types: Paleo-Atlantid, Mtebid, Atlantid, North Pontid..etc also avoid the Swedish (-id) suffix when possible (use -ic).

    I hate to derail this thread further but yes I don’t know how anyone can say they’re not mixed given the history. Unless they’ve got genetic results to back it up, which I doubt they do.
