British people are darker probably because of the Celts if anything nothing to do much else apart from that. The early English were really Mesolithic Celts and related to the Welsh but Anglo Saxon ( North German ) and invasions from Vikings and Western European Celts changed all that. Ethnic English people are North German or Viking the Western European Celtic and Roman/Iberian stuff is very secondary.
Russell Brand looks to me a bit Atlantid. Atlantid types are found in the Midlands here pretty often
i was under the assuption the vikings and anglo saxons dna input was quite negligable.
ive assumed darker celts are just people who have more of the J2 on the mothers side coming out.
