Kerry : Munster (Ireland)

Kerry is an anglicisation of Ciarraí, itself derived from Ciarraighe, or "people of Ciar" the name of the pre-Gaelic tribe who lived in part of the present county. Located in Munster, Kerry faces the Atlantic Ocean and as a region on the extremity of Ireland, culture of Kerry was less susceptible to outside influences.

  • Brief anthropological analysis :
Special thanks to Platypus.


- Type 1 : Light, brachymorphic, developed browridges, high and straight forehead, broad cheekbones, very broad jaw, wide-set eyes, narrow eyelids, little nose
~ Borreby



This type is widely distributed across NW Europe and is particularly abundant in the British Isles.


- Type 2 : Intermediate complexion, leptomorphic, broad cheekbones, broad jaw, narrow-set eyes, long and convex nose, narrow eyelids
~ Keltic-Nordid



This type somehow shows affinities with dinaricized Atlanto-Med phenotypes of SW Europe. More classical and British "Atlantid" phenotypes are to be found note for smaller features and less robusticity (pointy chin, narrow palate, ...).

I've chosen to let people comment freely on my posts. Nevertheless, you'll lose your time taunting me and calling me a fascist (which I'm really not) : I pray you to read my introduction which will reassure that my intentions genuinely aim at achieving amateurish knowledge. I understand that you may not share my passion for the history of the peopling of the World, just don't let me know as clear conscience gained by bashing a humble documentary work is useless.
