Cheddar Man’s 10,000-year-old skeleton was discovered near the village of Cheddar in Somerset, England, in 1903. Researchers now say he was part of a group of hunter-gatherer immigrants from continental Europe who’d settled in Britain shortly after the last ice age. Today’s white Britons are descendants of that immigrant population — one that, until recently, had been assumed to be fair-skinned.
But, by sequencing Cheddar Man’s entire genome and reconstructing his face using cutting-edge techniques, scientists at the Natural History Museum and University College London have proved the assumption wrong.
“Cheddar Man had blue eyes, dark colored curly hair and ‘dark to black’ skin pigmentation. Previously, many had assumed that he had reduced skin pigmentation,” the researchers said in a news release Wednesday.

The Dixie Highway was first planned in 1914 to connect the Midwest with the Southern United States. It was part of the National Auto Trail system. It is a network of connected paved roads rather than one single highway. It was constructed and expanded from 1915 to 1927.
The Dixie Highway was inspired by the example of the slightly earlier Lincoln Highway, the first road across the United States. It was overseen by the Dixie Highway Association, and funded by a group of individuals, businesses, local governments, and states.
The route was marked by a red stripe with the
white letters "DH", usually with a white stripe above and below. The logo was commonly painted on utility poles.
