  • Mongolian Spots in Europeans

    Is this a thing? I've read it's very rare in 100% Europeans, but I did find this:
    I know that the EDAR gene(influences certain aspects of hair, skin etc. and sweat glands) which is common in East Asians and Native Americans, but absent in other populations, has been found in Mesolithic samples from Scandinavia(around 6,000BC) even though they had no East Asian ancestry. I just checked the wiki page and it was found even more recently in samples from the Afanasevo culture and even as recently as 2200 years ago with the Scythians.
    Any thoughts. Could this mean anything or does anybody have experience with this?
