London: The earliest Britons were black-skinned, with dark curly hair and possibly blue eyes, new analysis of a 10,000-year-old skeleton has revealed.

Now we got Brits running around with white skin and brown eyes. What's going on here?

Easy to explain Jim!

Britain is located at a relatively high temperate latitude where there is lots of cloud and mist and not a lot of sunlight. In other words, over centuries and generations the melanin was blanched out of their skins by a near constant deficit of solar heat.

By contrast, the African continent straddles the Earth's equator bulge with only its extreme north and south ends enjoying anything approaching a temperate climate. So the sub-Sahara Africans must have had their melanin skin pigmentation constantly, repeatedly, topped up by Africa's intense sunlight and solar heat.
