Have you ever stopped and thought about your ancestry? It’s crazy to think that we all descended from people hundreds (and hundreds) of years ago. You may be related to Taylor Swift but have no idea. Taylor Swift has blue eyes and apparently everyone with blue eyes has one thing in common. How about Zac Efron? He’s equipped with some baby blues himself.
Anthropologists and scientists are after all sorts of information regarding ancestry on a daily basis. What were our eight times great grandparents like? What did they eat? Where did they live? One of the most interesting aspects of genetics scientists look at is eye color. Blue eyes are something of a scientific abnormality. Going back in time far enough to find the original pair of blue eyes sounds really complicated, but the boffins think they’ve done it. Find out the who, what, where and when on the next page.
