View Full Version : Human Skull Shapes and DNA Comparisons? Cephalic Index

Hi All,

This is probably the wrong forum to post this in, but has anyone ever compared Human Skull Shapes and DNA Comparisons? The Cephalic Index is what is used to measure a skull shape.

It would be interesting to see how U152's and L2 etc etc might fit in to such an index, though I had read somewhere that skull shapes can be Autosomal related, but it would be interesting to check them out against Y-DNA types.

A very interesting paper on the Cephalic Index based on geo-location from 1897 here:

I would be very interested in your thoughts/opinions.
