Hi Helge, just a little. I don't speak Lituanian, although it is popular to learn in the Lithuanian areas of cChicago. My Lithuanian last name is Lawrencikus!
Re: Sumerians. I believe the Sumarian working class were called "the black haired people." That is probably where the black came from. I have heard it said that the Sumerian elites came from Mt Ararat, Lake Van, Catul Hoyuk region. These people became the Sumerian ruling class. The may indeed have been blond, blue eyed "Sum - aryans." But this is hotly debated one way or another, I understand.
I have been reading "The Amarna Letters" so I have been quite preoccupied. Will be around more in the future - promise!
