    Even though the face reading thread exists, I thought it might be good to have a similar thread specificaly for skulls and reconstructions of skulls; mainly of anonymous individuals, but potentially of named historical figures as well.

    I found some good photos of Eskimo skulls in Ales Hrdlicka's 1910 work "Contribution to the Anthropology of Central and Smith Sound Eskimo".

    Robert the Bruce looks like a Neanderthal-influenced Cro-Magnon, not totally unlike Beethoven. He's slightly en bombe, but not to the degree of a Neanderthal. His cranium also features sharp biparietal corners in typical Homo Sapiens fashion. He could be considered TT and Arch-Thal overall, I think.

    His biography of successfully warring for independence is a hopeful note.

    That's what I would call a small latpar. (and probably a forward-shifted one)
    ventral latpar

    All of the other attempts I've seen to illustrate the size differences between Upper Paleolithic and extant crania have been grossly exaggerated and inaccurate, so I threw these together for ya. Based on metrics provided by anthropologists and primatologists.

    Excellent images, Shibboleth. It looks like Neanderthals and Modern Humans tend to be similar in auricular head height if both skulls being overlapped are representative (I admit that I haven't looked at the data on that), and that Cro-Magnon had a higher head than either of them.

    It's also unfortunate to see how much smaller brains today tend to be compared to Cro-Magnon 1's, but that's really just a good visual for something we already know around here.

    You cannot start new threads until you build some credibility.

    Also, this discussion is off topic to this thread.

    Your profile pic was posted to the wrong location. I moved it.
