You weren't very helpful and I think im going to have to clean this topic up of the rubbish, since many people input but they don't have any solid information.
However I am aware that the Turks (ancient) had a policy of taking under them many different groups of people as they encountered them. Perhaps a meeting with celtics somewhere gave them the light colouring.
All i know is, is that there is proof about this, rather than little boys here trying to tell me otherwise "because they think so".
Lol. Again, the Turks weren't of light colour and the meeting of Celts with Turks wouldn't have changed the colouring of the Turks, at least not just a brief meeting with them, and if were talking about the IE people that the Turks might have mixed with before they came to Anatolia, that would have been the Tocharians.
The Tocharians inhabited todays Northwestern-China, they were then invaded by Turkic peoples, today the Uyghur and they claim that they're indigenous and that the mummies found there were the proof of that, these mummies were the mummies of their ancestors. DNA tests proved these claims wrong however.
Anyways, I think it's nice that you finally realized that any blondism in any Turk is something of European deriviation and not that the Turks were a predominantly blonde people before they somehow mixed with darker peoples.
Btw, it seems as if the Chinese documents you were reffering to weren't mentioning Turks, they were about the peoples that inhabited Northwestern-China, which there are Turks living in now, however, these Turkic peoples were invaders.
