- Sample :
- Brief anthropological analysis :
- Type 1 : Light complexion (aqua-blue eyes, dark blonde hair, ...), brachymorphic, little and concave nose, square-box face, broad forehead, wide-set eyes, large jaw
Unsurprisingly enough, the area is home to classical Alpine types abundantly found in the Rhône valley in France.
- Type 2 : Light complexion (from blonde to chestnut hair, light eyes, ...), more or less leptomorphic, straight or convex nose, high cheekbones, strong jaw, close-set eyes
Many individuals indeed approach Nordo-Mediterranean metrics. Still, very "Germanic-looking" individuals (angular features, rather distanced eyes, snub-tipped and wavy nose, ...) are more of an oddity here, which is a sharp contrast with Upper Wallis. It appears quite clear that this area shares links with the Rhône valley in France and its archetypal Noric types. The fair presence of darker and rather dinaromorphic Mediterranoid types confirms that Neuchâtel somehow differs from Germanic Switzerland (not that drastically though : more samples are needed).
