here is the photo of a 'norwegian' footballer born and grown up in Qatar: before crossings with subsaharians negroid types, this type (very closed to some 'gracile mediterranean') was the dominant one in a lot of Arabs bedwins tribes, like in Yemen: very little of 'eurafrican' type more present among 'indo-afghan' types (more northern) - this features are very common also among western mediterraneans... 5558

yep, some common origins perhaps.. or similar climate adaption.. a mix of that..

What do you mean exactly by Eurafrican type? How is it possible that Indo Afghan people have more Eurafrican types than Bedwins while being farther from Africa?

What sources are you using? Seems like suspect 19th-to-mid-20th-century biological anthropology.

sorry for the mistaking naming, it is not my one - perhaps it would be better naming it 'high statured proto-mediterranean type' or something like that - this photo is just to show how very close was the phenotypes of a lot of mediterranean populations from West to East before modern crossings... - some scientists supposed that their 'eurafrican type', common among Sumerian people was a far descendants of the same stock as the 'combe-capelle type' (alias 'brĂ¼nn' for someones) of Central-Western Europe (worth to say: this type should be arrived in Western Europe only about 8000 BC, and would not have been an old neighbour to 'Cro-Magnon') - surely this big 'mediterranean' has to have been evolved apart from the 'gracile mediterranean': for some time they shared some lands in the Levant, mixing sometimes, taking the place one from the other sometimes - the two types was found also in the populations of present day Turkestan or Kazakhstan, at the time of the first southern incursions of supposed (seriously) I-Ean semi-nomads of the Andronovo Culture of more often 'cro-magnon' types (and surely some 'proto-nordic' form) - someones as everytime proposed mesological explanations for this two 'mediterranean' types there, but in the eastern Caspian regions they was well separated. to do short, the big ones (say "eurafrican descendants") have more rough of brutal shapes of cranes, higher faces and higher rooted noses and seam to be the basis of the present 'indo-(irano)-afghan type.
the true phylogenetic ligneages is to be found yet - I don't know their true filiation and relations
for the gracile ones, I think the common traits we find often between western and eastern mediterranean push us to think the western european are not all of them the pure descendants of miniaturized 'cro-magnons' (and even 'combe-capelle') as said by someones - the more common mt DNA shared by all mediterranean people (and levant people) compared to Y-DNA could esplain that??? aside of that, we have to explain why, when and where this " miniaturizing" took place. (surely some selection combining a lot of constraints): but some common features seam to link big and little mediterraneans nevertheless but incompletely, and they can not be taken for "little" 'cromagnoids' - this thread is without pretention...
