John Beddoe

The Races of Britain: A Contribution to the Anthropology of Western Europe

Paperback, Hardcover

John Beddoe (1826—1911) was Britain’s foremost anthropologist who specialized in the study of race, craniology, and racial origins. The Races of Britain: A Contribution to the Anthropology of Western Europe is a complete overview of the racial and sub-racial makeup of the British Isles. His primary means of measure was skull and hair/eye colour combinations.

Through cross-testing with the European continent, he found that the original inhabitants of Britain had been dark-haired and dark-eyed, and that the “greater part of the blond population of modern Britain derive their ancestry from the Anglo-Saxons and Scandinavians.” Furthermore, he found, the “proportion of English and Scotch blood in the present inhabitants of Ireland is probably not much less than a third. “

Description

John Beddoe (1826—1911) was Britain’s foremost anthropologist who specialized in the study of race, craniology, and racial origins. The Races of Britain: A Contribution to the Anthropology of Western Europe is a complete overview of the racial and sub-racial makeup of the British Isles. His primary means of measure was skull and hair/eye colour combinations.

Through cross-testing with the European continent, he found that the original inhabitants of Britain had been dark-haired and dark-eyed, and that the “greater part of the blond population of modern Britain derive their ancestry from the Anglo-Saxons and Scandinavians.” Furthermore, he found, the “proportion of English and Scotch blood in the present inhabitants of Ireland is probably not much less than a third. “

Beddoe also found that dark-haired population was re-occupying Britain by a “reflux migration” and that their numbers would steadily increase over time.

His conclusions have since been verified by DNA testing, which serves as a testament to the thoroughness of his research.

This is a valuable work which serves as a testament to the original make-up of the British people, and will serve as beacon of the past pointing into the future as mass Third World immigration changes the racial make-up of Britain in the present-day.

Classic European anthropology at its best.
