Of course Dorians were lighter; they had blondism in the same way Montenegrans and Ghegs do--peripheral Nordic admixture. One would expect them to be lighter than regular Greeks. I never said there was no blondism.
Celtic: that's what I meant when I said "Upper-Paleolithic." "Celt" is a rather-loose word, but it generally refers to Europe's indigenous population. Upper-Paleolithic types are from hunter-gatherer times, and they have larger heads than the average. Many Irish people are Upper-Paleolithic, if that gives you an idea of what the "look" was. There is a UP strain of people, because of the isolation, i guess, up in the Dinaric Alps. Here people can get very large; the Montenegrans, for instance, are recorded as the tallest people in Europe.
