Frankfurt is the main town in Südhessen. Stray archeological finds on the Domhügel go back to the Paleolithic, but the first proven settlement and land development date to the Roman era.
- Sample :
- Brief anthropological analysis :
- Type 1 : Intermediate complexion, leptomorphic, high-rooted and convex nose, high cheekbones, large jaw and pointy chin
This type is quite typical to South Germany *. More classical Nordoid or robust Germanic-looking types are to be found as well :
* : The form of the nose, the prominent lower lip, ... might hint to "Armenoid" strains as noticed by Maju. See comments.
- Type 2 : Light, brachymorphic, developed browridges, high and straight forehead, little and straight nose, broad cheekbones, broad jaw, wide-set eyes
Broadly speaking, those Alpinoid subtypes somehow differ from Germany's more archetypal exaggerated Borreby types from the North : here, noses can get convex, complexion can be quite dark (a generic "Bavaro-Austrian" look). Generic Alpino-Meds.
