Despite being inhabited by Swedes, the Åland Islands were part of the territory ceded to Russia by Sweden under the Treaty of Fredrikshamn in 1809. As a result, along with all other parts of Finland, they became part of the semi-autonomous Grand Duchy of Finland.
- Sample :
- Brief anthropological analysis :
- Type 1 : Light complexion (from medium brown to blonde hair with ash-blonde shades, ...), leptomorphic, general robust features, high forehead, long face, long and straight nose, large jaw, close-set eyes
This type, inbetween classical Trønder and East-Nordid types as identified by many authors, is quite typical from Scandinavia and NE Europe, even though sexual dimorphism is strong : female individuals are much less impressive.
- Type 2 : Light complexion (medium light hair with possible reddish undertones, light eyes, ...), brachymorphic, general robust features, squared-box face, high and broad forehead, little and broad nose that can get concave, strongly drawn lines around the oral cavity, deep jaw, wide-set eyes
This type is quite widespread in Northern Europe. Still within Borreby variation are some elongated individuals.
