Hi there everyone
I have always been fascinated by UK history and our interesting racial mix from succesive peoples arriving on these shores.
When I was much younger I read an old copy of 'The Oxford History of England - Roman Britain and the English Settlements' by Collingwood and Myres (published 1936) which in several places referred to the distribution of different facial features and body types in different parts of the UK, and how this might mirror settlement patterns even today.
This idea has stuck with me ever since and whenever I travel around the UK I try to amateurishly observe what might be the chararcteristics of people in that area.
Does anyone know of any studies that have been done?
I do remember a TV programme (and acompanying book) some years ago relating to facial types, but I seem to remember that it felt like an initial study, and didn't go deeply enough into the subject for me.
