From the Independent:
Revealed: the face of the first European

35,000-year-old skull fragments found in Romania are made flesh by scientists


By Steve Connor, Science Editor

Monday, 4 May 2009

Forensic artist Richard Neave used skull and jawbone fragments found in a cave to build this likeness of an early European.

This is the face of the first anatomically-modern human to live in Europe. It belonged to a man – or woman – who inhabited the ancient forests of the Carpathian Mountains in what is now Romania about 35,000 years ago.


Hilarity ensues.

I am amazed that this is news, novel, or a even a surprise to anyone but the most extreme creationists.
The african origins of the human species is well known, and this person pre-dates european blue eyes and blond hair by about 25,000 years.

Those comments...

It's amazing how alike white supremacists and masculinists sound when they air out their fears of non-white people and non-penis people plotting their "Marxist PC agenda" to take over the world.

The pain of losing complete cultural and political power. It must hurt a lot.

Don't look. I had just one itty-bitty peek and now I look like someone with a shellfish allergy who just ate mama's seafood gumbo.

ha ha.

We all started off black. Which scientists have known for a while.

This explains Vanilla Ice, at least. Well, sort of.

Doesn't take half a brain to understand the evolution of skin pigmentation, ie, why some people have darker skin ('cause they live in the sun), while other's evolve pale skin ('cause they live in the.. erm, not-as-much-sun.)

Of course, that's asking the internet to have at least half a brain.

Re: ha ha.

I find it funny because every time someone decides to do a representation of life back then, they trot out white people with dreadlocks.

I think it's hilarious that science is going, "Well, actually..." Not that the white people with dreadlocks will ever go away....
