Written by some kind hearted soul in the spirit of transatlantic relations.

Entertaining TV but not terribly compelling in my opinion.

No problem, I'll be posting another summary about the bigfoot episode there tomorrow. Although there really isn't much to say about that one.

Did anyone see last night's episode about the almasty and Zana? I wasn't expecting much after last week's utterly disappointing US Bigfoot episode but this was a pleasant surprise: they got DNA from her son's skull, and her 3 surviving relatives ( none of who looked any different from anyone else in the area) They all had traces of sub Saharan DNA: Georgia and Abkhazia were part of the Ottoman empire and African slaves were imported there. Maxim Gorky visited Abkhazia in the 1920s and encountered ex slaves . However the traces may have been ancient. Were Zana and other almasty treated so badly because they had been slaves?
Whatever she may have looked like, Zana was homo sapiens sapiens.

What do you mean Zana and other Almasty? Zana wasn't an Almasty she was an African.

The suggestion was that almasty might all be the result of some ancient northward migration from Africa. Can't recall his name but the man who excavated her son's remains mentioned accounts of almasty talking : given that and the apparent ease with which they had become hairy and cold tolerant it seems plausible. There aren't many accounts of almasty having drastically un-human characteristics and those are of course unverified.

Some of the human findings could be indicating a subgroup of hairy, large in many cases, humans, who for whatever reason have decided to live in remote forests and mountains, shunning us and hiding from us.
I'll tell you what I have many days when that idea sounds great.
