I thought that it was interesting as well.
The article states that the first white skinned people to reach the UK came from the Middle East.

"Pale skin probably arrived in Britain with a migration of people from the Middle East around 6,000 years ago.
This population had pale skin and brown eyes and absorbed populations like the ones Cheddar Man belonged to."

I read somewhere recently but didn't follow it up that more Scottish people are genetically related to Tutankhamun than Egyptian people are.

They'll all pile in on the thread with what they think are smart-arse comments and spoilers - what else? :gigglesnshit:


Meanwhile, "non-racists" will continue to make EVERYTHING about race, which is ironically, racism....

Britain’s oldest complete skeleton, known as Cheddar Man, was unearthed more than a century ago in Gough’s Cave in Somerset.

But an unprecedented examination of his DNA, along with a facial reconstruction of the fossil, shows the young man would have had a darker complexion than previously thought, along with blue eyes and dark, curly hair.

Don't suppose they'll make much of it at all. :dunno: why would they?

The problem with finding the 'oldest' skeletons of long lost peoples is they are only the oldest until an older one gets found and finding bones let alone complete skeletons is rarer than rocking horse shit.

And anyway is it any real surprise? I mean as modern archeological thought has always maintained that modern man originated in Africa then it stands to reason they'd have pigmented skin to protect them from the sun.

I don't know of any modern black humans who have blue eyes and I note they don't say whether the rest of the skeleton has the same characteristics of modern black people.

So to try and make this arguable finding into some sort of racial issue is pointless and really quite pathetic. :roll:

Seems like you're the one who is being a pathetic racist cunt :hand:


How so retard? - why would a recessive gene in a small number of people make any difference to my post? :dunno:

If anyone is obsessed by 'race' it appears to be you, no-one else and the weakness of your thread validates that. :shake head:


Jeez! Keep your knickers on grandad ffs!

Judging by how many of you neanderthals have jumped onto this thread one by one with 'retarded' answers, would show that it's you snowflakes that are having the hissy fits!

Seems the Independent's headline is somewhat misleading. I don't know what's considered 'modern' in anthropological terms but if we're really talking modern Britons perhaps we ought to look back to that migration from the Middle East instead.

I got the impression that "modern" peoples are those who migrated to the UK following the last ice age.
These islands have been inhabited by humans for about 2 million years I read, but not continuously.
And I think that the last ice age wiped most of them out.

As you can see from my avatar, I am descended from ancestors who had green skin.

Don't think Cheddar Man comes from Cumbria, starbold - the clue is in the name. :wink:
