A SCIENTIFIC analysis has shown that a Briton from 10,000 years ago had dark brown skin and blue eyes.
Researchers from London's Natural History Museum extracted DNA from Cheddar Man, Britain's oldest complete skeleton, which was discovered in 1903.

When I observed that opportunity for posting the usual Loony Lefty insults against certain persons appeared to be the sole purpose of Angry Andy's thread and link, that cupid stunt from the Outback went ballistic.
