Genetic study reveals 30% of white British DNA has German ancestry

Genetic study reveals 30% of white British DNA has German ancestry | Eclectic Mix | Scoop.it
Analysis over 20 years reveals heavy Anglo-Saxon influence, with French and Danish DNA coming from earlier migrations than the Normans or Vikings
Pamela D Lloyd's insight:

Fascinating and detailed look into British genetics, 20 years in the making: "Prof Peter Donnelly, director of the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics at the University of Oxford, who co-led the research, said: 'It has long been known that human populations differ genetically, but never before have we been able to observe such exquisite and fascinating detail.'" As someone with a lot of Welsh ancestry, I was especially interested to learn that the Welsh "DNA most closely resembles that of the earliest hunter-gatherers to have arrived when Britain became habitable again after the Ice Age."
