John Beddoe was Britain's foremost anthropologist who specialized in the study of race, craniology, and racial origins. This work is a 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, the author found that the original inhabitants of Britain had been dark-haired and dark-eyed, and that the blond element derived its origins from the Anglo-Saxons and Scandinavians. He also found that dark-haired population was re-occupying Britain by a "reflux migration" and that their numbers would steadily increase over time. 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.
