Recent films about ancient Greece such as TroyHelen of Troyandhave used actors who are of Anglo-Saxon or Celtic ancestry e.

Brad Pitt, Gerard Butler. Were the directors right, from an historical point of view? Were the ancient Greeks and Romans of North European stock?

Beautiful mature looking casual dating Charlotte Most classical historians today are silent on the subject. For Girls looking for sex Casciana Terme, Paul Cartledge, a professor of Greek culture at Cambridge, writes about his specialty, Sparta, for educated but non-academic readers, yet nowhere that I can find does he discuss the racial origins lookimg the Spartans. Some years ago I asked several classics professors about the race of the ancient Greeks only to be met with shrugs that suggested that no one knew, and that it was not something worth looking into.

Today, an interest in the race of the ancients seems Girls looking for sex Casciana Terme be taken as an unhealthy sign, and any evidence of their Nordic origins discounted for fear it might give rise to dangerous sentiments.

A hundred years ago, however, Cazciana took it for granted that many Greeks and Romans were the same race as themselves. Scholars today recoil at this pres consensus.

Beth Cohen, author of Not the Classical Ideal: In fact, there was a good basis for the Britannica to write about blonds in Thebes. Thebes was the leading city of Boeotia, a rich agricultural region in south-central Greece.

Many small terra-cotta figurines from Greece of the fourth century BC have survived with traces of paint. They show light hair, usually reddish brown, and blue eyes, as do larger statues from the time of the Persian Wars in the early fifth century BC. Even a cursory examination of ancient marble reliefs, statues, and Girls looking for sex Casciana Terme reveals European features.

Many of the faces could just as easily be those of Celtic chieftains or Viking kings.

The Greek poet Hesiod c. There were two racial types in ancient Greece: The earliest known Horny indiana wives were of the former type. These included the Minoans, who were not Greeks at all, and who built an impressive civilization on the island of Crete. The Pelasgians, Girls looking for sex Casciana Terme is the name later Greeks gave to the pre-Hellenic population of mainland Greece, were also dark.

They tended to have black, curly hair and olive-shaped eyes.

Their type is plainly visible on many Attic Athenian vases, and has lead some scholars to Girls looking for sex Casciana Terme that all Greeks looked as they did. Neither the Minoans nor the Pelasgians spoke Greek — the linear A inscriptions of the Minoans have still not been deciphered — so the Greek language must have arrived with the light-haired conquerors who migrated from the north, most likely from the middle Danube River Valley.

According to Greek national myth, the Hellenes were descended from Hellen not to be confused with Helen of Troythe son of Deucalion. Hellen had sons and grandsons, who correspond to the four main tribal divisions of ancient Greece: Girls looking for sex Casciana Terme today tend to dismiss such myths but they would not have survived if they had not been generally consistent with the long folk memories of ancient peoples.

In aCsciana case they point to what classical scholars have long srx was a series of Hellenic descents upon mainland Greece and the Aegean islands. The first Hellenes to arrive were the Ionians Beautiful housewives looking sex tonight College Alaska Aeolians; then a few centuries later, the Achaeans, and finally the Dorians.

The early bronze-age Greek civilization BC was gor influenced by Minoan and other eastern Mediterranean Cascixna, but it was unmistakably Greek. Linear B, which began to dominate Cretan culture around BC, Girls looking for sex Casciana Terme been deciphered and found to be an early form of Greek. Around Cazciana year BC this culture, known as Mycenaean, collapsed; its cities were destroyed and abandoned, and Greece entered a year Dark Age.

Earthquakes and volcanic eruptions probably played a part in the destruction, and later Greeks attributed it to invasions from the north. Waves of Hellenic warriors swept down and burned the Mycenaean citadels and became the ruling race in Greece.

R. Peterson’s fine study, The Classical World (), which includes an analysis of 43 Greek, and 32 Roman figures, is persuasive.

They Girls looking for sex Casciana Terme seem to have snuffed out much of Mycenaean culture: Greeks stopped writing, and abandoned the arts, urban life, and trade with the outside world. We know something about the early Hellenes from the Iliad.

It was first written down in the late eighth century BC, at the end of the Greek Dark Age, after the Phoenicians taught the Greeks how to write again. It recounts events some four to five hundred years earlier.

The Dorian invasion is dated by various ancient historians at, or BC. There is good reason to think that Homer was recording stories handed down during the Dark Age. He was a Girls looking for sex Casciana Terme who lived in Ionia, a region on the Aegean coast of what is now Turkey, and if he were making the stories up he would have claimed that the heroes were Ionian.

Instead, he sings praises to the light-haired Achaean nobility: As noted above, Xenophanes complained that all peoples imagine the gods to look like themselves.

Language lends support to this view, for both the Athenians and Arcadians spoke unique dialects. They learned Greek from the northern invaders but retained Pelasgian elements.

Thus, classical Greece was a fusion, both cultural and racial, of these two types of Girls looking for sex Casciana Terme. Some city-states, Girls looking for sex Casciana Terme as Thebes and Sparta, were predominantly Nordic.

Others, such as Athens, were predominantly Mediterranean, and still others were mixtures of the two. There are many lavishly illustrated books about ancient Rome with examples of death masks, busts, and statues that clearly depict the Roman patricians not simply as Europeans but as northern European.

Blue eyes, Free granny chat in gloucester united kingdom hair, and light complexions are common.

A good example of racial type is the famous portrait bust of Lucius Junius Brutus, the founder of the Roman Republic, which dates from the fourth Gjrls BC. The sculptor used ivory for the whites and blue glass for the pupils.

Or take the famous marble head of Girls looking for sex Casciana Terme patrician woman from the late first century AD, which is often included in illustrated surveys of imperial Rome to demonstrate the fashion for curled hair.

Her features are typically Valladolid nude women European: Another classic example is the famous fresco from the Villa of the Mysteries in Pompeii, which shows four women undergoing ritual flagellation. They are tall, light-skinned, and brown-haired. There is also evidence from Roman names.

The Flaminians were another noble family Sexy lady looking casual sex Southern Pines clan name came from flamma Girls looking for sex Casciana Terme, meaning flame, suggesting red hair.

Experts have restored the colors to show that Csciana demented ruler had ruddy skin and red hair. The love poetry of Publius Ovidius Naso, better known as Ovid, 43 BC to AD 17 offers much evidence of the color of upper-class Roman women during the early years of the empire.

That Ovid ascribes blond hair to many goddesses — Aurora, Minerva, Ceres, Diana, and Venus — tells us something about the Roman ideal of beauty; that he describes many Casfiana his lovers the same way tells us that the Nordic type was still found in imperial Teeme. So where did the Romans come from? They were a Latin people, although according to legend that may have some basis in fact, there were also Greek colonists and Trojan refugees among the founding races.

What became of the Nordic Greeks and Romans? Their numbers were reduced and thinned through war, imperialism, immigration, and slavery. Protracted internecine war was devastating.

The Hellenes lost relatively few men in their two wars with the Persian EmpireBCbut they were decimated by the ruinous series of inter-Hellenic wars that followed. That was followed by 35 years of intermittent warfare between Sparta and Thebes BCwhich pitted Nordics against Nordics.

These wars so weakened the Greek republics that they fell under Macedonian rule about 20 years later BCbringing to an end the classical Girls looking for sex Casciana Terme of Greece. Money was, as always, a racial solvent. Theognis, a noble Girls looking for sex Casciana Terme from the Dorian city of Megara wrote in the sixth century BC: And a lady will share her bed with a foul rich man, preferring gold to pedigree.

Dex breeds with bad and race is lost. The Roman experience was similarly tragic.

Immigration was the inevitable backwash of imperialism as slaves, adventurers, and traders swarmed into Rome.

Over time, slaves were freed, foreigners gave birth to natives, non-Romans gained citizenship, and legal and social sanctions against intermarriage fell away. By the early empire, all that was left of the original Roman stock were a few patrician families.

Our grandfathers sired feeble children; theirs.

Were weaker still — ourselves; and now our curse. Must be to breed even more degenerate heirs.
