There is a rumor ahead of publication that the y haplogroup of the two Mesolithic males from the La Braña cave in Spain is C-V20.

If true, that is surprising, and further support for Dr. Hammer's hypothesis that R1b did not arrive in Europe until the Bronze Age or the Neolithic at the earliest.

First, the nuclear and mtDNA sequences bore little relationship to those of modern-day Europeans from Iberia (Spain and Portugal).

 Did you see this link -

http://news.sciencemag.org/archaeology/2014/01/how-farming-reshaped-our-genomes

it talks about pigmentation, eye colour,  and suggests La Brana,s  had dark skin and blue eyes.
Didn't rms2 suggest blue eyes were in Mesolithic Europe before the "10,000 year old Caucasian origin" theory was popular?
