    Post Redheads "are Neanderthal"

    Red hair may be the genetic legacy of Neanderthals, scientists believe.

    Researchers at the John Radcliffe Institute of Molecular Medicine in Oxford say that the so-called "ginger gene" which gives people red hair, fair skin and freckles could be up to 100,000 years old.

    They claim that their discovery points to the gene having originated in Neanderthal man who lived in Europe for 200,000 years before Homo sapiens settlers, the ancestors of modern man, arrived from Africa about 40,000 years ago.

    Rosalind Harding, the research team leader, said: "The gene is certainly older than 50,000 years and it could be as old as 100,000 years.

    "An explanation is that it comes from Neanderthals." It is estimated that at least 10 per cent of Scots have red hair and a further 40 per cent carry the gene responsible, which could account for their once fearsome reputation as fighters.

    Neanderthals have been characterised as migrant hunters and violent cannibals who probably ate most of their meat raw. They were taller and stockier than Home sapiens, but with shorter limbs, bigger faces and noses, receding chins and low foreheads.

    The two species overlapped for a period of time and the Oxford research appears to suggest that they must have successfully interbred for the "ginger gene" to survive. Neanderthals became extinct about 28,000 years ago, the last dying out in southern Spain and southwest France.

    The gene is certainly older than 50,000 years and it could be as old as 100,000 years.
    "An explanation is that it comes from Neanderthals."
    Yes one explanation, but of course the most stupid one.

    To say just because this gene is older than 50.000 and probably even 100.000 years it must be Neandertalid is ridiculous.

    It is much more likely that modern humans spread over Eurasia much earlier than this person seems to believe.
    But even this is just (although a much more probable) speculation because that this gene is older (if this is true) say nothing.

    Post AW: Redheads "are Neanderthal"

    @Shapur: You can read up on this subject in the "Paleoanthropology and Genesis" section. It has been flogged to death.
    "slavic" languages are absolutely arteficial (Read "slawenlegende"). The "glagolica", invented by a bunch of monks, is nothing but an ancient esperanto, creating new words, definitions and alphabet out of regional slangs.

    The craddle of European Civilization comes from the North. All blond people originate from the north. So if you see a blond-blue eyed Slovene, Russian, Czech, Polak ect., you can be 100% sure that his ancient ancestors originated from "Germanics" (Germanic = Nordic).
    "slovenja" was the settelment of the Langobards = Germanics/Teutons. "Poland" of the Goths and East-Vandals ect. ect. What do "slavs" tell us about their origin?
    Some silly story that they originate from some swamps in the east and popped out of no where into history.

    So you see my dear "Gorostan" [=Triglav], you are in reality a "Germanic" indoctrinated with panslav propaganda and historic fantasy stories. ~Dr. Brandt, former TNP and Skadi member

    I think it's quite obvious this 'research' is simply another attempt by the English to make the Scots look bad.
