Early Bronze Age Farmers in Northern Greece Still Dark-Skinned

Unfortunately I cannot speak or read Greek, but he’s basically saying the agricultural people living in northern Greece around 5,500 years ago (or 3500 BC, in the Early Bronze Age) still had relatively dark skin (along with dark eyes and lactose intolerance). Unfortunately I haven’t seen an English-language article expounding on this in depth, but it is fascinating to find out that people in the Greek region would have still been “people of color” as recently as the Early Bronze Age.
