- Brief anthropological analysis :
- Type 1 : Intermediate complexion (pale skin color, grey/green eyes, chestnut hair, ...), leptomorphic, long face, probably brachycephalic, narrow eyes, long and narrow arched nose, rather receding forehead, lop ears, pointy chin

Conversely, men can be more robust (large face, large jaw, ....) :
Type 2 : Intermediate complexion (pale skin color but abundant black hair, ...), brachymorphic, large head, gracile general features, little and sometimes distanced oblique eyes, low orbits, low-rooted and little nose, weak browridges, large jaw
This type is mostly associated with Eastern Europe. Lighter male individuals are found :
