    Ancient Chinese of European descent

    Surprising, isn't it ? Scientists have tested blond-haired mummies found in Northern China and tested their DNA. There is no doubt, they are not Asian but European. Found the article here


    This other article says that the villagers of Liqian in the province of Gansu in China claim to be descended from lost Roman soldiers. They still have typical European features after centuries of mixing with Chinese, like fair eyes or longer noses. But DNA tests are not conclusive in this case.
