The article on Cheddar Man reveals that he was a dark brown or black Briton, but this is hardly surprising. Tacitus reveals that the Silures of south-east Wales, an area quite close to the Cheddar region, were of dark complexion and curly-haired, so he thought them related to the Spanish. It is quite likely that in early Britain the darker-skinned population that Tacitus identified was spread wider than the tribal territory of the Silures into the nearby regions of what is now south-west England. We Britons have been a mixed race since the beginning. White supremacists, eat your hearts out.
