by fair i mean northern european/english
All Brits are not nordic and fair.Cathrine Zeta Jones ,Sean Conery ect are darker then many Greeks.Western Britan and Scotland have some mediteranean elements.Tom Jones is Nordic?
: erm i thought the sphakiotes were tall and blond with a fair complexion, not of a medium one as you describe the typical Doric.
They are very tall lighter then the avg Greek and physically robust .On average they are blonder then the avg Greek .Skin pigmentation varys among them as it does all Europeans on average they are
medium light.Also race is mostly determined by skelital structure not pigmentation.The Doric type was more Alpine-Dinaric -Stocky as opposed to tall and slim nordic.Thats not to say they did not have some nordic strains.,
In addition pure blondism is a minority element in all of europe except Scandinavia.
: by fair i mean northern european/english
: by medium i assume the southern french/northern italian complexion
