Light Skin Comes from Asia

About 20,000 years ago, a person lived somewhere in the Middle East or Central Asia who bequeathed the genetic coding variant for lighter skin not only to all Europeans, but also many Indian people.

“We don’t know if this human dwelt in Mesopotamia, Iran, or the valley of Fergana, but clearly that’s where the light skin color has its beginnings,” said Richard Villems, a professor of archaeogenetics at the University of Tartu.
