    Nordic features (I) are centered in the northern countries, whereas Celtic features (R1b) are found through all of western Europe in many non-Germanic countries, so Nordic features are a stronger indicator. Nordic Celtic mixes are common.

    However, I, R1b, and R1a were found in western Europe already many thousands of years ago in the pre-tribal days.

    Most white children are born with blue eyes, but a percent of them change to brown eyes after a few days. It is simply a darker color. Blue is a variation of brown eyes.

    Germanic is an ethno-linguistic grouping. It has Alpinoid, Nordic and Mediterranean strains plus combinations you see as ie. Dinaric, Noric, mixed alpine. Even in Scandinavia most Germanics are not blond or blue eyed, Norway is teeming with darker inhabitants. Historically the Norwegians were aware the "strails" of Norway came from a different origin than the elites reflected in Finn- toponyms but there is no question they have been Germanics since before the Viking Age unlike mixture further north where Lapponid strains are clearly discernible.

    In England most Anglo-Saxons were of what Coon called the Anglo-Saxon type from the mainland. As they moved inwards through Britain they absorbed Celtic/Romanised inhabitants often darker; they were later joined by Danes in E Britain. NW England and SW Scotland have little to do with English blood deriving from the Britons. Historic SE Scotland (the Lothians) are as Germanic as (the rest of) Northumbria.

    Everywhere there were substrates in many places there was a temporary superstrate. The Slavic snowfall reached very far west; the Huns introduced a true Mongoloid strain into Germanic Italy and Hungary but like the local German languages they did not last.

    No. Actually Tacitus describes the people of Germania as people with reddish hair, bluish-gray eyes, huge body frames, not blond. The original Proto-German is a red-head, like some of the people, we see in England.
