    I'm curious as to what this 'Frisian' y-chromosome segment is? Has anyone seen the results of the study conducted by the University College in London?

    Germanic descendants

    And so we now have genetic evidence that supports the old oral folk histories. Imagine that!

    Its funny because the Irish word for England is Sasana which is named after the people, Sasanach (Saxon).

    Ok but...

    How is this news? Every history book and linguistic and scientific study shows the Angles, Saxons and Jutes came from Denmark and Germany. I wouldn't call them "German" but germanic as the whole study is actually based upon Dutch DNA anyway.

    I must agree this is old news even for us Swedes, but what are the other 50%. I always have thought that most English are germanic, but are the rest just celts or what are they? That is more suprising to me...

    I watched a Channel 4 news report on this particular issue and it seemed to suggest that 50% of the British population had the sainted 'Friesian Gene'.

    I must admit, I am quite confused over the whole situation. Only 3 or 4 months ago I was reading that it had been 'proven' that 75%-80% of the English population was identical to the Dutch population genetically. English genetics has never been an easy topic.

    This may be old news for people like us, but let's just be happy this non story has been given an airing - the more people that read it the better.

    This is a welcome common-sense repudiation of those theories which seem to dominate the scientific community today about the English being the product of a Celtic, pre-Celtic, or Iberian civilization. It seems any concept which argues against Germanic roots for the English or other peoples of the British Isles is always enthusiastically seized upon by individuals with a clear agenda. Hundreds of thousands of Angles, Saxons, Jutes, and Frisians did not found the English nation by being absorbed into the indigenous genetic milieu. As evidenced by this article, the reality is quite the opposite; the English owe their ethnic and cultural heritage to a decisively Germanic origin.

    Interesting to see Cornwall looking very Frisian! Of course, chromosomes alone do not an ethnicity make, but then this might irk the odd Cornish militant!
