Earlier this year the UK daily press and all main TV channels welcomed research at the Natural History Museum which, they said, shows our ancient ancestry was black. It is the media’s interpretation of a facial reconstruction on the skull of Britain’s oldest skeleton, the 10,000-year-old Cheddar Gorge Man.
A typical press report on the findings began: “The earliest Britons were black-skinned with dark curly hair and possible blue eyes.” This came from a Henry Bodkin of the Daily Telegraph, a so-called serious Tory paper. The photo produced everywhere shows that the face was a dark bronze and the hair was straight down to mouth level and then became wavy. Perhaps our Mr Bodkin wanted it to appear more African with complete curly hair. As for the definitely blue eyes, well you can’t have that with an ancient African, hence it was “possible” blue eyes. He, and all other reporters, made no mention of the fact that Cheddar Gorge Man’s nose was typical of the shape of Europeans of today and far removed from that of an African man.
I make no criticism of the pioneering work of the archeologists who found scraps of DNA in the ear of the Mesolithic ‘Cheddar Man’ . They then cross-referenced the genomes of modern inhabitants with known origins of living near the area of the Gorge.
Their DNA now comprises roughly 10 per cent of the genetic make-up of most white people living in the UK. But the maximum figure of 10 per cent is not good enough for the heading to Mr Bodkin’s report. This says “The first Britons were black – and their DNA lives on in most of us”.
That was also the view of a dusky lady on the BBC who went even further by suggesting that the overwhelming majority of Brits throughout the UK were black in origin. Ignore the fact that the 90 per cent of our ancestors were Celts, Saxons, or Vikings (the Normans were cross-breeds of French and Viking). Furthermore Archeologists in mainland Europe have recorded ample evidence in DNA testing that their ‘whiteness’ goes back to at least ten millenia.
Backing up this DNA evidence is also that resulting from the many naturally mummified corpses in Northern Europe. Leading the way is the Danish Bog man (Tollund Man ) who lived in Denmark 6000 years ago. Wikipedia images show that his skin is now black, although his features are typically Nordic. The oldest bog body found in Northern Europe, including Britain and Ireland is that of Koelbjerg Man  of 10,000 years back (same as Cheddar Man).
Believe it or not, where photos are shown, all these buried corpses have acquired ‘severe tans’ to their skin. Wikipedia says these occurred because of conditions of highly acidic water, low temperature and a lack of oxygen. These parameters apply to Cheddar Man, whether he was buried in a cave or outside in the Gorge.
The facts that were hidden in all the media reports yet again show that we are being subjected to a campaign of distortions and outright lies to accept a multi-racial future for our grandchildren. They are hoping that old buzzards who can still dig out some embarrassing truths will soon fade away – or even be ‘dealt with’.
