- Brief anthropological analysis :
- Type 1 : Intermediate complexion (from dark blonde to dark brown hair), brachymorphic, square-box face, tendencies to chubbiness, moderate browridges, high and straight forehead, broad cheekbones, straight nose, very broad jaw
This type is rather abundant in NW Europe : it's quite prevailing in neighbouring Northern France, at least in Romance-speaking parts of former Hainaut. Some leptomorphic types approach Nordid phenotypes : notice tendencies to rufosity which really are disctintive of this area.
- Type 2 : Light complexion, tendencies to rufosity, leptomorphic, long nose, close-set eyes
This type seems to belong to the famous "horsy" Flemish phenotype so common on the shores of the North Sea. Basically speaking, what seems to differentiate Romance-speaking people from Dutch-speaking ones in Northern France and Belgium is the ratio between both types : Borreby/Alpinoid phenotypes are prevailing in Romance areas such as Hainaut or Romance Flanders whereas Keltic-Nordid ones -dubbed "Flemish" - are more abundant in Dutch-speaking areas.
