East Tyrol (German: Osttirol), is an exclave of the Austrian state of Tyrol, sharing no border with the main North Tyrol part of the state. The area around the former Roman municipium of Aguntum was from the 12th century held by the Counts of Gorizia, who took their residence at Lienz and inherited the County of Tyrol in 1253.
- Sample :
- Brief anthropological analysis :
- Type 1 : Light, brachymorphic, short and large yet straight nose, square-faced, broad forehead, wide-set eyes, large jaw
This type seems to be quite widespread in the whole Alps, more particularly throughout the German-speaking areas. Some individuals do approach "Nordic" metrics but somehow lack the sharper features found in Type 2 and are characterized by a high forehead.
- Type 2 : Intermediate complexion, more or less brachymorphic, a rather large face on some individuals, convex nose, high cheekbones, close-set eyes, large jaw
~ Dinaromorphic Nordid
All these types were already identified in neighbouring South Tyrol. A darker series can be found as well.
