Somebody mentioned the DANELAW region as having quite a # of blondes.

Has anyone been to Yorkshire and other regions recently and seen if this is still true?

Or has migration and mud invasion diluted the nordic dominance complete?

Bertil Lundman noticed that Cheshire is very Nordid.

Eastern and Southern England. You can find many Sterotypically English people here. The Classic Anglo-Saxon Englishman narrow faced and rugged featured.

On the whole, Northern England is more Nordic than Southern England.

30% Keltic Nordic (derived from pre-Roman Iron Age invaders ), 20% Anglo-Saxon (post-Roman Germanic invaders, most common in the southeast, especially East Anglia), 15% North-Atlantid and 10% Palaeo-Atlantid (blend of Mesolithic Atlanto-Mediterranean invaders with both earlier and later arrivals; most common in the Midlands and northwest), 8% Hallstatt Nordic (of Viking and Norman derivation, although it is said for Normans they spoke Latin and had dark hair), 5% Brunn, 5% Tronder (of Norwegian Viking derivation; most common in the northeast), 3% Borreby and 2% Falish (again of Viking and Norman derivation; associated with the landed gentry; source of the "John Bull" type), 2% Noric (from Bronze-Age invaders, depegmented Dinarics, Dinarics are 2/3 Med + 1/3 UP) = 57% UP+N / 25% Med / 8% N / 2% Dinarik.

Scotland = 30% Keltic Nordic, 22% Tronder (most common in the NE), 10% North-Atlantid (most common - W), 10% Anglo-Saxon (most common - SE), 10% Palaeo-Atlantid (most common - SW), 5% Brunn, 5% Hallstatt Nordic, 4% Borreby, 4% Noric = 62% UP+N / 20 Med./ 9% UP / 5% N / 4% Dinaric

Ireland = 40% Brunn (indigenous Paleolithic inhabitants, most common in the west), 30% Keltic Nordic (most common - E ), 9% North-Atlantid, 9% Borreby, 3% Palaeo-Atlantid, 3% Tronder, 2% Noric, 2% Anglo-Saxon, 1% Hallstatt Nordic =49% UP / 35% UP+N / 12% Med / 2% Dinaric / 1% Nordic

Wales = 35% North-Atlantid, 30% Palaeo-Atlantid, 30% Keltic Nordic, 5% other types = 65% Med. / 30% UP+N / 5% other

McColloch's estimates have little or no actual truth behind them. :rolleyes:

On the whole, north-eastern England is the most Skando-Nordid. Lundman seemed to think there was an important Götatyp contribution in England aswell.

This is what Lundman wrote in The Races and Peoples of Europe:

The British Isles are more Nordid in race in the eastern regions. This is to be expected from the history of settlement of these lands. In parts of the counties of York and Lincoln and in the lowlands of Scotland, the population is just as pronouncedly Nordid in race as in Sweden or Friesland. The poorer parts of Scotland and almost all Ireland become always more North-Atlantid in race toward the west. There are also local survivals of the Palaeo-Atlantid proto-stock. We find Mediterranean strains in the south of Wales, in some heath-regions of southwestern England, and in a few bogregions in the interior of Ireland. In earlier times marsh regions were more extensive in these parts of Ireland. Nowadays a higher frequency of blood type gene q is found in these areas of Ireland, which may perhaps be correlated with the Mediterranean racial strain.

I just returned from Leeds. It was far more Nordic than Germany! (although I have not yet been to Northern Germany) Pretty women with blonde hair, very fair skin, blue eyes. Yes there are muds, but they are relegated to the worst neighborhood and usually just go around fighting each other with their chav counterparts.
