First modern Britons had 'dark to black' skin, Cheddar Man DNA analysis reveals
#1
FWIW~
The first modern Britons, who lived about 10,000 years ago, had “dark to black” skin, a groundbreaking DNA analysis of Britain’s oldest complete skeleton has revealed.

The fossil, known as Cheddar Man, was unearthed more than a century ago in Gough’s Cave in Somerset. Intense speculation has built up around Cheddar Man’s origins and appearance because he lived shortly after the first settlers crossed from continental Europe to Britain at the end of the last ice age. People of white British ancestry alive today are descendants of this population.

It was initially assumed that Cheddar Man had pale skin and fair hair, but his DNA paints a different picture, strongly suggesting he had blue eyes, a very dark brown to black complexion and dark curly hair.

"Science" today is paid to push an agenda.

There is very little "science" done that isn't presented with an agenda to push so don't believe anything.

Next they will tell you we all evolved from apes!

Here is the actual skull of this 'Cheddar man"...they are lying.
This skull is Caucasoid.
They can fool people who haven't studied skeletons, but they can't fool those of us who have!

Was Cheddar man white after all? There's no way to know that the first Briton had ‘dark to black skin’ says scientist who helped reconstruct his 10,000-year-old face

The bones are the oldest near-complete human skeleton ever found in Britain
Experts tested DNA taken from bone powder by drilling a hole through the skull
It showed there was a 76 per cent chance that Cheddar Man was ‘dark to black’
Scientist behind the test used says it is impossible to be certain of this fact

The early hunters followed the herds of herbivores north during the summer months where the warmth and long summer days provided the growth of the vegetation which they grazed on. Britain was joined to mainland Europe at the time.

Once summer had passed the herbivores would move south to graze on the pastures of the southern lands where winter rains would provide adequate food for them. The hunters would follow the herds south.

Vitamin D deficiency (rickets) causes malformation of the pelvic bones which makes normal childbirth impossible. A lighter skin colour is required outside of the tropics to synthesise sufficient vitamin D on the skin to prevent rickets.

Nursing mothers must also provide sufficient vitamin D for their babies which they have stored during the summer months for the baby to thrive.

Supplements are given to pregnant women and nursing mothers which contain vitamin D, also foods are fortified, something not provided in the past.

Once permanent settlements were established outside of the tropics a lighter skin would be required for vitamin D production.

There is insufficient grazing in the higher latitudes during the winter months and modern day farmers provide hay, silage and supplements in order for their livestock to survive this period.

They are already saying that...GOOGLE is making it all about the Black Skinned First Everything People.

Any Genotype can have any phenotype expression, so it's not possible to say what complexion this fellow had.

Here's another black face according to Google:

Yep, that's right, Christopher Columbus was black...because according to New World Order 'Science' the first Italians were now black people.
