Different facial features and body types in UK and their origins- any studies??

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.

What Do You Think About Atlantis?

What do you believe about Atlantis? Do you think the story is true of False? Was the story made up by Plato to make a point about morality? Is the story partially true? Where is Atlantis located and what makes you think so? Have you actually read Plato’s version of his story or you only read what others wrote about what he wrote? Do you think Atlantis will ever be found? What have you read lately and why should I read it? Do you think the story of Atlantis has been encoded because the language has changed over time? What size was Atlantis According to Plato?

Looking for book recommendations for Christian/Jewish/Kabbalah etc mythology

Hi. I’m new and I wasn’t sure where to post this so sorry if this is in the wrong place. I am looking for recommendations for books or anything else that are good for learning about biblical stories and mythologies, jewish mysticism, angels etc. I have watched Evangelion and read the Mortal Instruments series and am especially interested in angelic hierarchy, demons, christian mythology and stories and everyone else that relates to them.. This has made me interested in exploring those topics.

What's your favourite Fairy Tales (and their possible origins)

Fairy Tales are beloved by all, deservedly so. So which Fair Tales do you enjoy most? If you can tell us its origin, or possible meaning, then please share that too! It’s always great to learn something new about our favourite stories :)

Mine is The Singing Bone, which has its origin (possibly) from an old Greek Myth (Meleager and the Calydonian boar) both stories have a boar, a murdered brother, and a sort of ‘Stick of fate’ effect.

However, the Greek Myth does not have a singing bone XD, which would have upped the epicness.
