From the late 19th century an opposing view arose, that witches were not Satanists, but adherents of a surviving underground pagan religion.

More > Isles. His primary means of measure was skull and hair/eye colour combinations. Through cross-testing with the European continent, the author found that the original inhabitants of Britain had been dark-haired and dark-eyed, and that the blond element derived its origins from the Anglo-Saxons and Scandinavians.
