Cheddar man's "dark skin" was widely reported as a fact but it turns out it was just a wild guess, according to a new report from the New Scientist.
From the New Scientist (Un-paywalled):
A Briton who lived 10,000 years ago had dark brown skin and blue eyes. At least, that’s what dozens of news stories published this month – including our own – stated as fact. But one of the geneticists who performed the research says the conclusion is less certain, and according to others we are not even close to knowing the skin colour of any ancient human.Incidentally, despite this development a search of Google News shows not one single news outlet has issued a retraction.
Here's how the BBC reported on it two weeks ago:
The New Haven Register even compiled a list of tweets celebrating the news under the title, "Twitter mocks racists after DNA test shows ancient Britons had dark skin."
I guess this means reporting the truth on these new revelations will now be considered racist!
