~~~snip~~~ hey did a DNA test on the Cherchen man (the 3800 year old 6'6 tall dark blonde mummy and the oldest mummy found), and the beauty of Loulan (the red hair mummy), and both of these mummies contained East Asian Mongoloid DNA. Even the Chinese scientist were astonished. The Mongoloid component of the Tocharians are not from Han Chinese or pre Han Chinese, but most likely from Altaic types of Mongoloids such as Uyghurs, Kazakhs, Kyrgyz, and Mongolians.
This obviously indicates that the Tocharians were already mixed for quite a few generations, since they looked mostly Caucasian. Very interesting. History books need to rewritten again, as intermingling between East and West occured at an even earlier date than conceived.
The conclusion on DNA test on all 12 samples of the Caucasoid mummies contained DNA from: Europe, Mesopotamia, Central Asia, Mongolia, India, and Siberia. So to make a long story short, the ending of the documentary concluded that Xinjiang was a crossroads town where people from all over came, traded, and mixed with each other. The documentary was incomplete but It was still good and informative. The documentary also stated that the test were not done and more information will be released once completed. They should have just finish the test before making this documentary as it was very vague but it was still informative....

“Red-headed steppe children?”
Best play on words I’ve seen in a long time.
“The new iPad. Now 44% more spit resistant...”
We gave John Cameron Swayze a new iPad and strapped him into a NASA rocket sled to show you how tough they are.
(don't know if you're old enough to remember those Timex commercials)
I wonder how many know that Ramses the Great had red wavy hair? Originally they thought he just colored it as there was henna found on his hair but tests showed his natural hair was also red.
Wasn't Esau, son of Isaac and brother of Jacob, also a redhead?
I think tradition and maybe even the Bible say that King David was a red head.
Sure am... ;-)
Genesis 25:25 for Esau.
I Samuel 16:12 for David (”ruddy”).

Thanks CJ Wolf for the ping, thanks Renfield for the topic.
Had Kerry been properly educated, he would know that Temujin son of Yesugei was the Chinggis Khan. “Genghis” is part of a title, not a name.

Lordy, I’ve just outed how old I am.
“...Ramses the Great had red wavy hair...”
So, as one with red, wavy hair, that should qualify me as a descendant and I am making claim to my inheritance currently housed in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo. Some of that likely came out of Tut’s Tomb, and I have seen it with my own eyes!
I have always disliked red hair tho it runs in my family.
When my daughter was born, the nurse told me I had a beautiful baby daughter. When I saw her among the other newborns, my first reaction was: “Oh no, red hair”. It is still red tho more like auburn now. Her children are all blondes.
