Probably because they spent most of their time outdoors.

Are these the same idiots who convince children that dinosaurs were all sorts of bright colours? There is not a single scrap of evidence, we have zero proof only furtive imagination.

Read the article. There is DNA evidence. Whether that's proof or not I can't say from that article, but you can't claim that there's no evidence just because you can't understand it or choose not to believe it.

On the other hand, it's not beyond the realms of possibility to envisage Mail readers / UKiP members, dashing out to buy magnifying glasses to minutely examine their bodies for any remaining traces of pigmentation.

I realise Iím about to start a slagging match that I am unlikely to contribute to any further but why do people assume that Daily Mail readers and UKIP voters (I am neither by the way, I just accept that people are entitled to hold different opinions) are racist?

Itís possible that many of them are racist, but by tarring them all with the same brush you are no better than you deem them to be.

Is that irony?

Oh and, by the way, a few thousand years before Cheddar Man we were covered in fur and walked on all fours.

Turning this into a conversation about race is a little specious in my opinion.

Far beit from me to question our omnipresent expert, but why would our ancestors have come by sea?

No sea at the time, so he was a continental.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doggerland

Undoubtedly was also not a permanent settler due to dietary reasons. The permanent settlement of Northern Europe and Scandinavia took place about 13000 years ago, probably shortly before the sea rises made Doggerland vanish beneath the waves, in main part because of a genetic mutation somewhere in the Balkan region which extended lactose tolerance into adulthood and allowing nomadic tribes to survive in the colder regions drinking cow/reindeer milk and eating dairy products - and almost exclusively at the time amongst Caucasian tribes. It has spread further since, but is still far rarer.

Well... it's like this.....

Huge ice age river carved the English Channel | The Independent

As far as I'm aware, there was no tunnel 10000 years ago, lumps of metal flying through the air hadn't yet been invented, it's a long way to swim, which leaves, erm, crossing by sea and boat perhaps ?

Of course, maybe they had mastered telekinesis in those distant days...which would explain everything !

Apart from playing early Lego with big stones, nothing of consequence happened until the Romans arrived.

If the first Britons were Essex girls, I suspect it was fake tan

Or you could read the article further to the point of

"When sea levels rose during the warm period between ice ages, the channel filled with water and Britain became an island. There have been five ice ages in the past 500,000 years, with the last one ending about 9,000 years ago Ė the last time Britain was connected to mainland Europe and animals and people could cross easily."
And conclude that 10,000 years ago they simply walked across?

No matter how much evidence is found, it is not correct to say that these people were black.

The appropriate term is People Of Colour. I have heard Barryo Barma use that term, so it must be correct.

Now stop being Daily Mail reading racists.
