    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.

    U152+ L2+ John Wilson is currently my oldest known direct male ancestor. John Wilson married in the parish of Hawick (Pronounced as Hoik) in the Scottish Borders in 1699. Many of his descendants went on to be very successful in business in Hawick and some even became somewhat famous. Like James Wilson (my 1st cousin) who was a manufacturer, then M.P and the founder of "The Economist" Magazine and the Standard Chartered Bank. Another was Sir James Glenny Wilson, also of Hawick originally.
