Hunter Gatherers Not What You Might Expect

This is an interesting WashPost article which talks about a recent finding that says that there is evidence that at least one (who knows if there are more) hunter-gatherer was blue eyed and "dark skinned" which seems to go against the stereotype about blue eyed people having only white skin.  It might make for an interesting class discussion at the beginning of the year.  

Here is more from National Geographic and if you are so inclined, here is the full article from Nature magazine.
