Hey guys. I'm wondering if there are any reference books out there that sort of lists out the different types of facial features of the various ethnic groups? A bit of study on the skull structure, as well as photo plates of some samples of different people from different ethnic groups? Like say the skull of a bushman would tend to be flatter from the front, but more bulging at the back, and so on.
Like the end section of the Steven Rogers Peck anatomy book has a tiny tiny two page spread of something like what I'm talking about. I'm just wondering if there is anything out there in more detail?
".....Forensic anthropologist Caroline Wilkenson says Mongoloids feature "absent browridges". Skulls belonging to Asians and American Indians exhibit very forward-projecting malar bones and comparatively flat faces, more circular orbits than other groups, and a moderate nasal aperture with a slightly pointed lower margin. Moreover, Mongoloid skulls are the most gracile in the human family. It is believed that the Mongoloid skull type is a very recent evolutionary development. "The Mongoloid skull has proceeded further than in any other people." "The Mongoloid skull, whether Chinese or Japanese, has been rather more neotenized than the Caucasoid or European."....."
This is kind of what I'm looking for. Unfortunately the accompanying images are less than ideal, being small and only from one angle usually. Some kind of frontal and profile view would be great, and if it's further break down the subtypes, such as, Sino-Tibetian, Koreans, Austroasiatic, Malayan, etc. etc. then it would be even better.
I guess what I'm looking for is close to what a forensic anthropologist, or a physical anthropologist might be reading. A rather low level anthropologist lol.
