I would go as far to say that one could well place Ali Larijan, Mohammad-Ali Ramia, and Muhammed-Bager Qualibaf, upon any street corner in Denmark, and they would be indistinguishable from any other Dane!

But, I could have mentioned most any street corner in the West! But, to me at least, they most resemble Danes!

You could have also said Dutch, German or Anglo-Saxon, and I still wouldn't have disagreed with you. Only Qalibaf's eyes, to me, have that distinct Mediterraneanish, or perhaps, Indo-Europeanish, look.

Since most all "White" people here in the South, where I was born and raised, can or did call England or Scotland, etc., as their home-country, I can tell, it seems, a difference between Danes and Germans, and even French, on a general basis, as well as Finnlanders, Swedes, etc.

Interestingly, Spain gives me more of a problem?, especially in Madrid! Catalonia is different entirely!

You sure? I can tell too, but only when they start speaking.LOL
 
Seriously though, Opus. I lived in England for seven years, and I never could tell between Anglo-Saxon, Dutch, Dane or German. Especially if they're all of similar coloured hair.
 
Finns I could begin to suspect a bit, their head and face shape tending, very slightly, toward Asiatic, I think. Whereas some dark haired, Mediterraneanish Frenchman(woman) also I could hazard a guess.

Maybe it is an age situation? I am old by most accounts, and I have traveled throughout a lot of this planet! Or, perhaps some of us can see things as well as hear things tht others do not, or cannot?

But, I do seem to have an "ear" for languages and accents!

But, perhaps that is just an "old man" speaking? laugh!

If we consider that Ashkanians a.k.a Ashkuzai a.k.a. were Scythians, and that Scythians were in turn descended from Thracians before them, then it makes sense that an Ashkanian battalion would have fought on the side of the Trojans.


Really.. so Trojans were not genetically or culturally related to Greeks?

I don't want to be disrespectful my friend but you need to dig a bit more regarding Thracians.

I think they looks like North Mediterranean people, I think the Goths, Alans, Vandals and Sueves come from the same people as the Parthians.

Parthians had nothing to do with Germanic people of Europe.They orginated in modern Turkmenistan and spoke originally an eastern Iranian language but later they adopted Persian language and culture.It is very likely that modern turkmens look like the ancient Parthians.Most of them are turkized Iranian people
