    Wales is predominantly Celtic with some Germanic admixture. 30% of the Welsh DNA is Anglo-Saxon, according to a recent study in 2016. This couldn't be avoided, since there was interaction with the mighty English or Anglo-Saxon rulers and settlers throughout the years.

    The Welsh are no doubt predominately Celtic. Many Welsh people still speak their native language. But Welsh people definitely have some Germanic ancestry as well from the Anglo-Saxons and Normans. I am not sure how many Norse settled and remained in Wales during the Viking Age but I am inclined to think that they mostly raided the Welsh and took some captives and moved on. The Isle of Man was much more strongly influenced by the Norse than Wales. The people there today are a Norse/Celtic blend.
