Are there redheads that aren't of Irish/Scottish descent?
The most-red haired people are said to be the Udmurts (Fingols living in Russia) t b h, this is from their festival celebrating red hair
why are poles triggered by their fellow eastern europeans so easily
calm down perfidious albion
>Professor Donna Heddle is director of the University of the Highlands and Islands’ Centre for Nordic Studies. She believes that the Vikings who are often depicted in paintings and movies as having blond hair were actually red heads.
>She said: “The perception that the Norse were blond is nothing more than a prevalent myth. Genetically speaking, the chances of them having blond hair weren’t that likely. The chances are that they would have had red hair. Interestingly, if you look at where red hair occurs in the world you can almost map it to Viking trading routes.
>“The only other density of red hair which compares to Scotland and Ireland is in Scandinavia. It becomes a cultural marker of the Norse and of the Vikings.
>“If you look at where the red haired patterning is in Ireland, in particular, it is very much around the areas where Vikings settled.
>“Research has shown that 60 per cent of the DNA of modern males on the Orkney Islands, where there is a particularly high proportion of redheads, is Norwegian. That evidence backs up the idea of the clear genetic influence.”
A specific viking tribe developed redhair due to lack of sun and spread it around British Isles.
Celts had black hair and blue eyes.
That quote is 100% full of shit though. First of all red hair is most prevalent among finno-ugrics. Second of all, red hair is more prevalent among celts than it is with scandis. If it was the nordics that spread it to them, it would be the other way around. And lastly
It is indeed bullshit. In the study that established all this the area they found the highest frequency of carriers of the gene in Ireland, something like 60%, has little association with Vikings. Just in Scotland because the place with the highest frequency is the Orkneys they assumed it's origin was Nordic.
>Celts descended from Spanish fishermen, study finds
>A team from Oxford University has discovered that the Celts, Britain's indigenous people, are descended from a tribe of Iberian fishermen who crossed the Bay of Biscay 6,000 years ago. DNA analysis reveals they have an almost identical genetic "fingerprint" to the inhabitants of coastal regions of Spain, whose own ancestors migrated north between 4,000 and 5,000BC.
>The discovery, by Bryan Sykes, professor of human genetics at Oxford University, will herald a change in scientific understanding of Britishness.
>People of Celtic ancestry were thought to have descended from tribes of central Europe. >Professor Sykes, who is soon to publish the first DNA map of the British Isles, said: "About 6,000 years ago Iberians developed ocean-going boats that enabled them to push up the Channel. Before they arrived, there were some human inhabitants of Britain but only a few thousand in number. These people were later subsumed into a larger Celtic tribe... The majority of people in the British Isles are actually descended from the Spanish."
>Professor Sykes spent five years taking DNA samples from 10,000 volunteers in Britain and Ireland, in an effort to produce a map of our genetic roots.
>Research on their "Y" chromosome, which subjects inherit from their fathers, revealed that all but a tiny percentage of the volunteers were originally descended from one of six clans who arrived in the UK in several waves of immigration prior to the Norman conquest.
>i'll ignore science and believe in my magical fairy tales
/int/ in a nutshell
He is technically correct. The redhair gene MC1R produces a very dark red carrot color.
Those redheads everyone wants to fuck are Germanic redheads which are usually redhair combined with blonde.
And this is supposed to prove what exactly? And it's funny you're saying we believe in fairy tales when looking at the modern populations you can see that the celts and finno-ugrics have higher amounts of redheads than scandis
Because we already investigated what Finno-Ugrics redheads are supposed to look like and what passes as "redhair" in Udmurtia.
Udmurts look no different from what Finns call "stereotypical Russian".
>Because we already investigated what Finno-Ugrics redheads are supposed to look like
the fuck are you talking about. Even if you want to ignore ugrics, then go ahead and use your black magic to explain wales and other such places that have nothing to do with vikings and yet have a much higher portion of redheads than scandis.
Yes it's me, you've been replying to me all this time.
The question here is, have you ever been to Ireland? I've never been to Wales but i'm sure they look the same thing.
Numerically Germany has way more redheads than Ireland or Wales. And the redheads in Germany are those hot redheads everyone wants to fuck.
Pic related is what the average irish redhead looks as far as hair color goes (can be darker too obviously), if I think about for example when I was still in school, about half of the redheads had the same type of hair colour as pic related and half had the very dark red that you seem to think all celtic and ugric redheads have. And where you wish to stick your dick in is 100% irrelevant
>trusting what the gay schizophrenic posts
He is that idiot that posts those hairy roided freaks and keeps creating South Brazil threads and saying more than half of Brazilians have blonde and red hair. He is very sick and demented.
Swedish actor Peter Eggers.
German model Ilva Hetmann
Peter Eggers and Hetmann are more or less what pure redheads looked before mixing with Spaniards(AKA Celts) and became modern day Irish redheads.
Anyways, going to drink some beers now. It's Sunday for fucks sake, i shouldn't be discussing this stuff during Sunday.
Udmurts are mostly red, some caucasians (people living around caucasian mountans) are also red
It's beautiful on both sexes. Fuck off Anti-white.
