The Blue Eyes Map of Europe

And here is a map of the distribution of fair eyes in Europe.



It's a very - though not entirely - similar distribution to that of blonde hair. The concentration of these really sort of strange traits around the Baltic makes you realize that northern Europeans, and especially Swedes and Finns, are kind of a race of mutants. Not that there's anything wrong with that. But it makes you wonder why these adaptations never showed up on a large scale in northern Asia and northern North America. Those areas were certainly populated long enough for such traits to take root.

It's very easy to understand. Simply because Europe is the only place on earth where humans can exist in high numbers at such a latitude. That would be impossible to happen in Canada, or in east Russia as these lands would be too cold for large numbers of people to live there in the neolitic, large enough to be statistically possible to create a mutation. The gulf stream hits Europe and North Africa. Were it be hitting Siberia instead, history would have been different as this other location would be the one harboring population enough to generate a mutation such as what happened in Europe.
