Group: East Europid , Sibirid


Ancient, mostly Europid type of Northeastern Europe and Western Siberia associated with the ancient Kammkeramik culture. Probably played a role in the formation of modern Uralids and Baltids. Survives in people of the Ural region, especially Khanty, Mansi, and Chuvash. In low frequencies it extends west to Europe and east to the Altai.

Physical Traits:

Pale to fair skin, usually straight, sometimes wavy, blonde to dark brown hair, mixed eyes. Medium height, meso- macroskelic, endomorph to mesomorph. Meso- brachycephalic, mildly hypsicranic. Mildly leptorrhine, often round-tipped nose. Relatively low, very wide face with a great interorbital distance and a wide, heavy mandible.


Coon (1939) named the type after Neolithic crania from Lake Ladoga. Biasutti (1967) mentions a similar Proto Europid type related to Uralid. Lundman (1967) regarded it as part of Volgid. Eickstedt (1934) regarded it as Proto Alpinid, similar to Lappid.
