    Many people in the British Isles have a dark phenotype. There is this weird myth, mostly from north America, that we are bristling with blonds. Many 20-25 are blond at maximum

    Some of those newspaper articles are very misleading. They are saying this because of E1b1 y dna in Scotland which is substantially higher in Southern Europe. Scotland has one of the lower percentages of E1b1 ydna in Europe so most of Europe must have higher Berber blood if you follow that logic.

    The interesting thing is that it appears to be around Hadrian’s Wall. Could quite possibly be Roman influence.

    The article below is sensationalist rubbish. People would really need to take articles in the press about dna with a pinch of salt.

    Sean Connery looks North West European. If people are seeing North African or Arab they have overactive imaginations. His features are obviously very British Isles. He ancestry has deep roots in Scotland and Ireland.

    Scotts don’t have any North African blood, he doesn’t look Berberid, at all.

    He’s a Paleo-Atlantid, classic British Isles type.
