GENETIC HISTORY January 24, 2007Posted by wmmbb in Social Environment.
It seems that males from Yorkshire have been identified as carry a Y chromosome that indicates African forebears who appear to have arrived in Britain during the Roman occupation and the building of Hadrian’s wall. ABC Online has the story (The BBC report is more interesting – and more hopeful.)
I would love to have some kind of exotic genetic history other than the staid Anglo-Saxon-Celtic and related inbreeding. Failing that, I would be interested to know which of the “seven mothers” of Europe my genes showed lineage.
