    Post Are the Galley Hill People Ancestors of Mediterraneans?

    I was reading Races of Europe last night and Coon wrote that the people of Galley Hill were ancestral to Mediterraneans. They were very short and very dolicocephalic. Interesting that the oldest Mediterranean skull (that I know of) is found in the UK.

    Perhaps the climate is better for preserving bones?

    The Galley Hill skull was thought to be of Paleolithic origin during Coon's time. However, it was shown in the '40s to be of relatively recent origin.

    Still, we have the problem of Meds. in the UK. Y-Chromosome evidence seems to indicate that Atlanto-Meds. are Northern Europeans, as much so as other N. Europeans while Southern Meds. are just that, derived from a southern and eastern Med. origin. This means there are two kinds of what we are calling Meds. Atlanto-Meds. may be responsible for the Megalithic Culture 5,000 years ago. Coon points out that they crop up in the UK and elsewhere in Western Europe. Don't get me wrong, I am not an Atlanto-Med., but I see nothing separating these people from other Northern Europeans, at least the Y-chrmosome evidence does not support separation. Perhaps this is only a problem of semantics, but if that is so shouldn't we simply re-name them?

    Then, near end of the 19th century, fossils that were claimed to be Neanderthal turn up in a gravel pit at Galley Hill, on the banks of the Thames River. The much ballyhooed Galley Hill Man was subsequently shown to be a modern woman, perhaps a victim of the gallows from which the hill takes its name.
    Still, there's Long Barrow:
