    But I cannot send you a picture because everytime I trie it it goes to hell. Sorry. I have to improve my skills!
    It's ok. Have you made a screenshot photo? And then you try to send it here? I tried to send some photo ,and one photo would not send untill i sent a different photo first,then after that it worked,to send the original photo.

Your eyelids (higher outside) seem to me more common in eastern Europe than in West but... ATW they are not 'finn-like'. Sorry I cannot do better for a mixed form (mixtures so common among us, even at the external phenotypic level). ATW no evident traces of one of the typical robust spite dissimilar "types" inherited from Paleo- and Mesolithic periods in Europe -
    Concerning geographic origin, broadly said, your are not amazing among Balkans, Ukraina, maybe Central Europe, but elsewhere too; maybe Askhenaze Jew, but this label doesn't say a lot, they are so mixed sometimes. Not first choice for Scandinavian, Finns and Northern pops of today Europe, not more first choice for typical Southern European people.
    But pics are pics, not measures, and I'm not so good at individual ethnic guesses. Others could say better than me.
    Do notice I maid here more 'typology' for it's worth, than ethnicity guess. Sorry. Ethnicity is not alway tightly linked to phenotype.
    Can you tell me if my phenotype is from Early European Farmers?

    Sorry for the late answer. You put too much confidence in my knowledge.
    About first European farmers I have only verbal description of COON, they are centred on his 'danubian' type, supposed to be close enough to the first Anatolian farmers passed into Europe, a selection of a part of Catal Höyük people; would it be based on LBK og Hungary? For these last ones I have only measures of skull.
    the type was rather smooth 'mediter', with rather frontal face, almost vertical forehead, and very high skull compared to length and breadth. I lack skull pictures.
    These types share some common features with true gracile 'mediter' types: small oval face, rather light chin, subdolichocephally or dolichocephally. Your rather rounded broad occipital region could be of the type too, without too much certainty.
    You are not far from this kind of model, but it is still general, I cannot say more.

    You have some facial similarities to my reconstructions of AnatoliaHG/Early Neolithic and Funnel Beaker, because of your narrow eye distance and wide vomer(Nasal Bone) to eye distance:

    More of what I think of when I think of a "Med" face on a man. Had I not known who it was I would not have guessed Welsh. He looks like an Italian singer of the 30s or 40s or an opera singer to me. A bit of a Rudolph Valentino vibe too. They sold postcards of his face. :)



    Carlo Buti:


    Like Ronald Coleman and Barrymore (called "The Nose"), he did love taking profile pictures to show off his nose.



    Rudolph Valentino:


    In this last picture maybe a bit of Louis Jourdain?



    A stronger jaw and chin in Jordain, altogether too manly, I suppose. My mother just adored him in every role he played. :)

    How could I forget Marco Mengoni. You don't get more "Med" than this, imo.

    It's hard to find a picture of his beautiful face without a beard covering it all up. It's a beautiful beard, but leave it for men who need a bit of covering up of something. :)

    Are these examples of what Mediterranean facial types look like ? Or are they examples of my facial dimensions or both?

    It's sort of a mantra of mine that pigmentation can be very misleading at times. My father was a Marco Mengoni "type", but he had dirty blonde hair as an adult and green eyes, so it wasn't obvious that he was Med or Atlanto-Med.

    There's also the fact that some Scandinavians have been described as de-pigmented Meds. Not all, of course, but a good number imo.

    Of course, that's all any of this is, opinion. It's one of the few areas of the site where I allow myself to do that, because it's all in fun. :)

    I am not prejudiced against any race , none at all. Is just that i dont have the features of the so called norid or dinaric. I don't think there is anything wrong with people that look like that type of look. I dont believe that there is a so called " dinirid" or " norid" race and i dont like classifying( I shouldn't have wrote to classify me) Besides I feel that anyone that doesn't have a tiny nose is always called a dinirid or norid despite having different features. Look at the features of these "norids" they have a very long chin, long face, also ,high brachycephalic and a forehead that slopes backwards flatly .I have measured my face and its medium length, nose is medium length and my skull is mesocephalic and i have a forehead that is more vertical,also i have a light slight squarish jaw chin with a cleft that norids dont have. I think asians look fine like any other race. I realize that the middle east is asia too . No disrespect i worded wrong my response.

    Who is Welsh? And who is " he"? " He looks like an Italian singer of the 30s or 40s? You didn't say who you were talking about. Is the word "Med " mean "Mediterranean"? Thank you

    You could pass quite easily as Flemish/Belgian. You remind me of someone (in front view). Though your eyes are a bit off and the midface is a bit too vertical or lengthy (for a Belgian)
