Early Briton had dark skin and blue eyes

quote [ Researchers from London's Natural History Museum extracted DNA from Cheddar Man, Britain's oldest complete skeleton, which was discovered in 1903.

University College London researchers then used the subsequent genome analysis for a facial reconstruction. ]

I love when technology unlocks new ways of looking at the past.

If you stare into a vat of molten wax and say "Cheddar Man" three times, he'll rise out of the vat and snatch you.

He looks like a nice guy. Funny how he also looks like person of mixed race in these times when there are still voices calling for segregation and the separation of peoples due to their skin colour.
