Nor is there supposed to be any direct connection between the Nephilim and the Anakim, although that is frequently assumed. The following is posted on the Nephilim Chroniicles website advertising the book of the same name, at the indicated link.

TURNING MYTH IN TO REALITY
Dinaric skull from the Ohio Valley
A rare skull type called "Dinaric" has been found in Jerusalem the British Isles and the Ohio Valley. The Dinaric were gigantic people whose large skeletons have been found within burial mounds across the extent of Europe. They were one of the contingents of the Beaker People who are best known for their construction of Stonehenge.
One of these skulls was found in Jerusalem that gives credibility to the accounted giants in the Bible, known as the Amorites. The Dinaric may have been one of the other giant peoples described in the Bible, known as the Avim, Emmin or Zanzumins. [ie, "Barbarians". More usually called Anakim-DD]
The Bronze Age in Britain, “The Dinaric form a rare group in the world with a cranial length of 184 mm and a index over 80. This peculiarity they share with the few known Brachycephalic crania of the Upper Palaeolithic. Again reminiscent of the Upper Palaeolithic skulls in the ruggedness of muscular marking, the prominence of the brow-ridge and occipital lines and the depth and breadth of the mandible.” The only other population group with this type of skull were the Allegewi mound builders of the Ohio Valley
The skulls of the Dinaric are described as being tall short heads, a high bridge of the nose and the back of the head appearing “cut away” at the back. Facial prognathism or a jutting upper jaw is also present. On the left is a Dinaric skull from Germany, on the right is a Dinaric skull from Ohio
The Dinaric spread through conquest out of the Caucasus into central Germany to Northern France. From France, the Dinarics advanced into the British Isles. Another group of seafaring Dinarics are found throughout the Medeteranean. There is evidence that the Dinarics were in the Levant at the time of the Amorites. Several of the Dinaric skulls were found in Palestine and Israel, that at first were believed to be Peruvian skulls, however identical skulls were found and it was realized that these unique head shapes represented a different type of people. One of these skull was found in Damascus, within the realm of the Amorites and Og.
One of these Dinaric skulls was discovered by Prof. Retzius, who described it in the Proceeding of the Royal Academy of Science, 1902 “adducing arguments to strengthen that supposition. A Peruvian skull which had been brought to Europe as a curiosity during the reign of Charles V. and afterwards thrown aside. His communication appeared in Muller's "Archive fur Anatomie" The opinion of the learned traveller was, however, subsequently reversed by the discovery at Atzgerdorf, near Vienna, of another simular cranium. More recently others have come to light at the Vollage of St. Roman in Savoy, and in the Valley of the Doub near Mandense. Dr. Fitzinger has probably investigated this subject with more thoroughness than any other writer, and has shown in his articles in the "Transactions of the Imperial Academy of Vienna", that this custom was native to the Scythian region in the vicinity of the Moetian Moor, and prevailed in the Caucasus and along the shores of the Black and Caspian seas and the Bosphorus. One of these deformed skulls was discovered in 1856 by J. Hudson Barclay, in a large cavern near the Damascus Gate at Jerusalem. The skull was of unusually large size and decayed, but the skull, which was pretty well preserved, was brought to this country and is preserved in the collection of the Academy of Natural Sciences of Pennsylvania.”
Peruvian skulls with flattened back of the head and a high forehead have been mistaken for Dinaric. Note that facial prognathism, or a jutting upper jaw is not present, nor is the mandible as large as what would be found in Upper Paleolithic skull types.
