The so-called Brunn type was the type described as the dominant in Ireland, so people like P.Brosnan and S.Connery who are chosen based their good looks for Hollywood and popularity among women, do not represent the average for Britain/Ireland. It is only through carefully made studies that one can determine an average for a population.

This is in Penross, Pwhlleli in North Wales at the 14th Wakestock Festival. Wales as a whole has been known to have a lower frequency of blonde hair than in most of Britain. However it is not so dark as others said, rather blonde-haired people are common. Hair usually range from blonde to dark brown.

Isn't north Wales close to the Wirral in England? That was a huge Norse settlement so the blondes could be of Scandinavian descent maybe?

Compared to Germans, British people aren't dark overall as a population.

Yes Wirral had Anglo-Saxon and Norse influence while North Wales remained Celtic or relatively "pure". In a 2002 study of the Y-chromosome Evidence of Anglo-Saxon Mass Migration, when seeing North Welsh towns to Central England genetical evidence and comparing it to samples from Friesland and Norway. The North Welsh towns differ signicantly from each other and from the Central English towns. While the Central English were found to be genetically indistinguishable from the Frisians. Scandinavians, Anglo-Saxons must have increased the number of blonde-haired, but blonde headed were already to be found among Celtic people. It wasn't as Rome.

In the picture below are some North Welsh rugby players, you can see most brown to blonde hair, only one person at the far-right seem to have really dark brown hair, he looks foreign/non British and two have fiery red hair which is typically Celtic.

Here is another picture of North Welsh people. There are three non-Whites, apart from that the other kids are light and pale("ghost-white) within Northern European context.

I just thought I'd post this genetic map. What I find interesting is that the Irish, British and Dutch overlap completely. Can anyone explain that? This is from 2008. It looks like all these populations share a close relationship due to geographical closeness.

Wouldn't that be due to the Saxon influx?
