    Exactly...My aunt who is of 100% British Isles (with a small amount of native Irish) background is just as dark if not darker than that Bell Beaker woman. There certainly are some darker complexions among native Brits. Although not as common as light complexions they are part of the natural variations found in the British Isles.

    Abstract
    Ibiza was permanently settled around the 7th century BCE by founders arriving from west Phoenicia. The founding population grew significantly and reached its height during the 4th century BCE. We obtained nine complete mitochondrial genomes from skeletal remains from two Punic necropoli in Ibiza and a Bronze Age site from Formentara. We also obtained low coverage (0.47X average depth) of the genome of one individual, directly dated to 361–178 cal BCE, from the Cas MolŪ site on Ibiza. We analysed and compared ancient DNA results with 18 new mitochondrial genomes from modern Ibizans to determine the ancestry of the founders of Ibiza. The mitochondrial results indicate a predominantly recent European maternal ancestry for the current Ibizan population while the whole genome data suggest a significant Eastern Mediterranean component. Our mitochondrial results suggest a genetic discontinuity between the early Phoenician settlers and the island’s modern inhabitants. Our data, while limited, suggest that the Eastern or North African influence in the Punic population of Ibiza was primarily male dominated.

    Right - this almost fully putting a lid on the the absurd claims that Phoenician settlements were not substantial demographically along the Mediterranean sea.

    Surely if they settled in little 'o Ibiza, then West Sicily where they had several towns established, later on being absorbed by the Punic empire, was well within their reach.

    Now we just need those Bronze Age Sicilian samples from the other study, where I expect we won't see any of the post-Bronze Age Near Eastern admixture we see today in Sicilians, and we can finally lay to waste those mostly racially-motivated claims that all Near Eastern admixture in Southern Europe is rooted in EEF (that is - Neolithic).

    One of the issues is because people in the West (especially so amongst some groups in anthrofora with dubious agendas) have a negative opinion about the Middle East because of religion and its violent recent history. I'd bet that if we could see an alternate timeline in which the region was peaceful and Christian those people wouldn't care nearly as much.

    It's ridiculous how people still care about these sort of things, particularly given with what we know about ancient genetics these days - we are all heavily mongrelised

    This study shows precisely that the genetic contribution of the Phoenicians in Ibiza was scarce because all the mitochondrial haplogroups are typically Iberian (EEF if you prefer). Only men came to this island and I suppose that the high percentage of T in the Balearic Islands will be related to these Phoenician men.

    Regarding the typical topic of hair and eye color, it only shows lack of culture and that people have traveled very little. For people who like football in England you can look for a picture of Fernando Llorente (Tottenham) or David de Gea (Manchester United) to know what I'm talking about.

    Erm, not really - it shows that it wasn't scarce at all, and it actually very similar to what we're seeing in Sicily - pretty much all the Levantine uniparentals we see there as well are paternal lineages, not maternal.

    They try to use the same argument about Etruscan origins due to the mtdna being of 'Neolithic' origin as opposed to more recent East Mediterranean/West Asian.

    It will be very interesting when we get fully analyzed ancient Etruscan samples. I'll leave it at that.

    Thatís my skin colour my motherís and my grandfatherís. I happen to have light eyes, from my fatherís side. We all tan easily & I go browner than some north Asian people. Yes most of my school (a sample size of 1000) were much lighter skinned than me, but mousey brown hair was what nearly everyone had, me included, rather than the black brown in the reconstruction.
    Yet I agree with other posters that most Brits would guess her to be Southern European but it is from her total appearance rather than individual aspects.
    Out of 64 pre 1800 births 45% Cheshire, 1% Irish (or Scottish), 25% south Derbyshire, 13% Burton on Trent area (where 4 counties within 10 miles), 7% Shropshire, 1% Staffs, 8% Lancs. So far all British Isles despite what the testing companies say.

    the beakers and this lady has close to nil to do with 'southern europe' the neolithic farmers she inturn has little to do with that would have been 'southern european' aka mediterranid-taxon Ųtzi is south european proto-boleraz is south european ballynahatty is south seuropean and the list goes on as the mediterranid taxon derived from the anatolian farmers(incl pigment) and in direct continuity to south europe today; this here is as pegasus noted more siberian/south american amerind at best; also to note the anatolian ancestry she must have carried would be via (TRB>)GAC farmers and they looked per metrics(+also pigment) whole differently;

    morphometric is seeming to make a comeback lots of recent papers out and these traits are just as inherited as any markers on the chromosomes most prob determined by them;
