Einstein’s head

Dienekes’ Anthropology Blog: Einstein’s head

    His skull is clearly, and to an extraordinary degree, brachycephalic, great in breadth and receding towards the nape of the neck without exceeding the vertical.The belief has been that genius is the prerogative of the dolichocephales.  The forehead is huge; its breadth exceptional, its spherical form striking one more than its height.

    Einstein: The Life and Times, by Ronald W. Clark, p. 353
