    That sounds like a bogus. How can you tell apart bottle blondes from internet photos?

    True. What is not clear, however is (a) whether the study covers both genders or not - usually anthropologists study men alone precisely because they tend to be more 'natural and (b) as I said earlier, does 'brown' mean light brown or dark brown?

    Unlike Scotland where there was a massive anthropological survey conducted (Gray & Tocher, 1901), no survey of that kind has been carried out in England or Wales. In fact the data on Wales is even better than England. Barbara Freire-Marreco (1909) did a survey though of hair colours from children from seven schools in Surrey, the results are as follows:

    47.9% blonde
    36.9% medium brown
    2.4% red
    12.85% dark (dark brown/black)

    These surveys always run into the problem of classification. The above figures for blonde hair are also inflated since younger childen have a much higher tendency towards blondism. Coon (1939) includes general statistics on pigmentation, but I find Beddoe (1885) to be more reliable. Both agreed blondism in Cornwall runs from as low as 10%. It certainly differs per region, however if you're looking for an overall figure it would be between 30 - 40 %. Ripley (1897) in his article "The Racial Geography of Europe" estimates "pure blondes" in England at 40%, compared to only 3% in Italy and 0.5% in Sardinia.

    Here are the results, over 5000 people were counted.



    This information in a map, basically measuring brown vs red/blonde:

    It looks about accurate if you compare it to these


    If you count, roughly 35-40% of them are blond, which fits well with the statistics.

    Those Photos clearly illustrate how we English are all so very dark and swarthy, all those blondes are actully wearing wigs and have bleached their skin pale because we English are famous for our tanned swarthy brown skin.

    Nice photos mega, btw what part of the country are those schools in? My school was weird because it was about 20% ginger.

    Most other maps I've seen show Northern England just as blond as any other place, if not more so. They had a double dose of Germanic genes, with both Angles and Vikings.

    An earlier user pointed out that modern day stats including females are not very reliable. Well, here is a map drawing on army recruits (presumably all or nearly all men) from the mid 50s.

    Very interesting map and observation, makes sense based on what I've seen looking at pictures of people from England

    Wow, do modern anthropologists still do this?

    England looks very blonde to me. Dark hair seems to be uncommon, right?

    One thing for sure, they're more blondes in U.S than England.
