Scientists believe they have tracked down the cause of the eye colour of all blue-eyed humans on the planet today.
“Originally, we all had brown eyes”, said Prof Hans Eiberg from the University of Copenhagen, who led the team.
Blue eye colour most likely originated from the near east area or northwest part of the Black Sea region, where the great agriculture migration to the northern part of Europe took place in the Neolithic periods about six–10,000 years ago.
“That is my best guess,” he said. “It could be the northern part of Afghanistan.”
(…) “They have all inherited the same switch at exactly the same spot in their DNA. From this we can conclude that all blue-eyed individuals are linked to the same ancestor.”
Che sia il Mar Nero o il Nord dell’Afghanistan, perdio, finalmente anch’io posso vantare almeno un antenato esotico.
