Naturally this teaching also holds that no Caucasoids or Negroids were present anywhere in the Americas prior to the coming of Columbus and the European conquest in the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries AD.
In the case of Monte Alban these Caucasoid figures date back to about 600 BC and in the case of La Venta to about 1200 BC - almost 3000 years before the European conquest.
The skeletons' skulls bear features similar to those of Europeans, suggesting that Caucasoid people were among the earliest humans to migrate into the New World more than 9000 years ago.

 § 15. Caucasian / Caucasoid. 6. Names and Labels. The American Heritage Book of English Usage. 1996
Caucasian and its more restricted synonym Caucasoid belong to the system of racial classification proposed by European anthropologists in the 18th and 19th centuries.
These terms refer to a broad group of peoples indigenous to Europe, western Asia, northern Africa, and much of the Indian subcontinent.
Caucasian, but not Caucasoid, is also a geographic term referring to the Caucasus (the mountainous region between the Black and Caspian Seas for which the racial category was named) or to any of its indigenous peoples including Azerbaijanis, Armenians, and Ossetians.

 Modeling Age, Obesity, and Ethnicity in a Computerized 3-D Facial Reconstruction, by Evison (Forensic Science ...
Photograph of a facial reconstruction in progress, illustrating that the shape of the eyes, tip of the nose, and lips are largely guesswork.
This person could have been Caucasoid, Negroid, of mixed ancestry, or one of a number of other potential ethnic affiliations.
Scans of these reconstructions were used to construct a VRML model that interpolates between the Caucasoid and Negroid reconstructions made from the same skull.

 In Vivo Measurements of Facial Tissue Thicknesses in American Caucasoid Children
Moreover, 25% of the measurements, while not statistically significant, decreased with increasing age.
These data provide a basis for facial reproductions in caucasoid children.
Ultrasonic determinations were made of facial tissue thicknesses in 50 healthy American caucasoid children, ranging in age from 4 to 15.

 "Mystery of the mummies"
They were clearly the remains of a Caucasoid people, with dark blond or yellowish-brown hair, deep-set eyes, and long limbs.
Among the corpses Mair saw that day were the mummies of a man and woman from a joint grave and an infant that had been buried nearby.
In Archaeology, Mair writes of the mummies: "Judging from their physical appearance, which ranges from Chinese-looking Mongoloids to European- and Afghano-Persian-looking Caucasoids, substantial elements of the original population were absorbed by the Uygurs." As that happened, did the language of the earlier people die?

  Richard Lynn -- Race differences in intelligence: A global perspective.
In relation to the Caucasoid mean of 100, based on more than 10,000 children, largely urban pure Negroid children obtained a mean IQ of 65, while urban Colored children obtained a mean IQ of 84.
All the children were drawn as socially representative samples from typical public primary schools in their respective countries with the exception of the Irish children who came from rural areas and whose mean IQ was rather lower than would otherwise have been expected.
Whatever criteria are adopted, the Caucasoids and the Mongoloids are the two most intelligent races and the historical record shows that this has been the case for approximately the last 5,000 years.

 IQ differences in races - how it happened
The thesis to be advanced is that the Caucasoid and Mongoloid peoples who evolved in Eurasia came to occupy a new niche which exerted selection pressure for improved intelligence to deal with the problems of survival in the cold northern latitudes.
The magnitude of the Caucasoid advantage is about the same for all three abilities, namely about 30 IQ points for the Negroid-Caucasoid comparison and about 15 IQ points for the difference between Caucasoids and Negroid-Caucasoid hybrids in the United States and Britain.
The question to which we turn now is whether the Caucasoids and Mongoloids evolved larger brains to accommodate their greater intelligence, as had happened on previous occasions in the history of evolution.

 Caucasoid race - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Caucasoid race was a term used by some physical anthropologists to describe people indigenous to an area including Europe, South Asia, Middle East, North Africa, and certain areas of Central Asia.
According to modern mainstream anthropology, the Caucasoid race is a concept that emerged as a result of history, not genetics
Caucasoid hair type may either be wavy or straight and it comes in all diameters and colors.

 Caucasian race - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The term itself derives from measurements in craniology from the 19th century, and its name stems from the region of the Caucasus mountains, itself imagined to be the location from which Noah's son Japheth, traditional Biblical ancestor of the Europeans, established his tribe prior to its migration into Europe.
Caucasoid is a term used in physical anthropology to refer to people falling within a certain range of anthropometric measurements.
Although terms like race, caucasoid, and caucasian means different things to different people, what defines caucasian or caucasoid in forensic anthropology is far more clear.

 Caucasoid   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Caucasoid describes the racial classification of humans indigenous to an area roughly corresponding to Europe, North Africa, West Asia, South Asia and parts of Central Asia.
Use of Caucasoid in these contexts may be seen as assertion of an essentialist viewpoint that contemporary or historic racial differences are biologically determined, or may simply be an imprecise attempt to use a more scientific-sounding synonym for Caucasian.
Caucasoids present the lowest degree of projection of the alveolar bones which contain the teeth, a notable size prominence of the cranium and forehead region, and a projection of the midfacial region; these show some similarity to certain Neanderthal traits, though the currently dominant single-origin hypothesis excludes any Neanderthal descent for modern humans.

 Race Differences in Intelligence: A Global Perspective
In this and in subsequent tables summary results are given for the geographical location of the sample, the age of the subjects, the numbers, the tests used and mean IQs for general, verbal and visuospatial intelligence.
Further inspection of the results set out in Table i shows that the mean IQs from all these Caucasoid populations lies in the range of 94-107, with the single exception of a low value of 87 for Spain found by Nieto Alegre et al (1967).
The widespread appearance of the strong visuospatial - weak verbal ability pattern among Mongoloids in so many diver-se geographical locations suggests that it has a genetic basis and that this is responsible for their striking over-achievement in the sciences and architecture and under-achievement in law.

 Caucasoid
Caucasoid is a racial classification usually used as part of a system also including Australoid, Mongoloid, Negroid, and sometimes others such as Capoid.
The term Caucasoid is most used in discussions of human prehistory and in the forensic analysis of human remains.
Designation of particular human groups as fully, partly, or not Caucasoid can also be politically loaded; for example, Afrocentrists may see definitions of Caucasoid that extend into Africa and South Asia as attempts to claim ancient civilizations thought to be prestigious such as Ancient Egypt as White instead of Black.
