    Hi All,

    This is a very interesting article that shows how often our ideas of the ancient past are wrong:

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/...ack-natural-history-museum-dna-study-reveals/

    Also, I recall that someone posted memories at some point of being a dark skinned person in ancient Briton (or Ireland?), so this would tend to validate what otherwise might seem to be a rather strange PL memory.

    Cordially,
    S&S

    PS--Don't miss the reconstructed image/recreation of the person who's DNA was analyzed.

    Very interesting S&S. I recently did some extensive DNA work. My M-haplogroup (Maternal DNA) is T2 and the route to England and the isles came from Africa, through the middle east (Iran) and then up to Great Britan. This does not surprise me as it goes back far enough where changes in our appearance were in the works. Google halogroup T2 and you can see the connection. ~Tman

    Not 10,000 years ago , at least 160,000 .
    This is most likely an isolated individual . A bit like finding a white skeleton in Africa,and assuming the people were white skinned .
    The first europeans would have been brown eyed and mediterranean in appearance ,not Chinese ,nor African .

    This is interesting... who actually knows where we have physically evolved from.. I had a DNA test.. All of our recent family history... both sides.. 4-5 generations live in England and Scotland.. Yet according to my DNA I'm 75% Western European 24% Irish and !% something else.. Talking to my siblings I asked them how is that possible that for those most recent 4-5 generations not once was there a union with British DNA or any other DNA that does not seem possible to me
    How is it possible I'm more Western European than most people living there?... This is my physical DNA... then anything is possible
