    I would expect that fairer skin was an evolution on the continent of Europe, and that the proto-Europids who had come from the Central Asians were somewhat darker like Native Americans, Central Asians, Mongoloids, Indo-Persians, etc. Which probably explains why some regions with European blood going back tens of thousands of years can have somewhat 'dark' individuals as a 'throwback' or archaic survival. The question I hope that this technology might answer is a timeline for when the skin tone was changing - it might tell us *much* about the climate during the past ages.

    Some folk seem to forget that we are *still evolving*, and our ancestors didn't necessarily look like us. The ancestors of our ancestors even less so. Europeans are one of the most *recent* groups evolutionarily speaking (especially certain subraces more than others), so our history of change is also much more recent.

    The most delicious aspect of Taco Bell is the fact that Mexicans are buying a lamentable, bastardized version of their own culture.

    The people to whom belonged the bones that where dug upp in Hallstatt, Austria were not nordic. They were meds.
    the characters do not make the genus, but the genus gives the characters -- Linnaeus

    Not that there's a huge skeletal difference, but, how do you know exactly what they were?

    Maybe this does prove the R1b Paleolithic cro-magnons that settled Western and Central Europe were dark skinned. I can't wait until they find original colour of hair. I think it's probably dark brown-black, but most likely black..
