    Study Reveals 'Extraordinary' DNA of People in Scotland

    The DNA of people living in Scotland has "extraordinary" and "unexpected" diversity, according to a new study.


    The Scotland's DNA project, led by Edinburgh University's Dr Jim Wilson, has tested almost 1,000 Scots in the last four months to determine the genetic roots of people in the country.

    The project discovered four new male lineages, which account for one in 10 Scottish men.

    It also found that actor Tom Conti is related to Napoleon Bonaparte.

    Scotland's DNA was set up by Dr Wilson along with historian Alistair Moffat, the current rector of St Andrews University.

    Using new technology, scientists were able to pinpoint a participant's DNA marker, from which they tracked the person's history and lineage.

    Conti and Napoleon both share the M34 marker, which is Saracen in origin.

    The project found that Scotland has almost 100 different groups of male ancestry from across Europe and further afield.

    More than 150 different types of female DNA from Europe, Asia and Africa were discovered.
    Royal line

    Researchers believe that Scotland's location could be a factor in the "astonishing and unique" origins of people from the country.

    In a statement, Dr Wilson and Mr Moffat said: "Perhaps geography, Scotland's place at the farthest north-western end of the European peninsula, is the reason for great diversity.

    "For many thousands of years, migrants could move no further west. Scotland was the end of many journeys."

    Scotland's DNA also found that more than 1% of all Scotsmen are direct descendants of the Berber and Tuareg tribesmen of the Sahara, a lineage which is around 5600 years old.

    Royal Stewart DNA was confirmed in 15% of male participants with the Stewart surname. They are directly descended from the royal line of kings.

    Scientists believe comedian and presenter Fred MacAuley's ancestors were slaves, sold at the great slave market in Dublin in the 9th Century, despite his name suggesting a Viking heritage.

    They said MacAuley's slave ancestor was taken by ship to the Hebrides and had an affair with his owner's wife, thereby intruding DNA into the MacAulay line.

    Scotland's DNA will soon be renamed Britain's DNA as the project aims to widen its genetic study to include the English, Welsh and Irish.

    One will have to determine the true source of these findings of course, seeing as this is from the BBC lol! Whatever liberal funded (read Jew) nonsense is behind it will soon make itself known I'm sure through its twisting of context.

    I agree with this statement,Renownedwolf!You honestly can't trust anything the BBC or an American news syndicate has to say.Maybe this is an attempt by the BBC to thwart Scotland from moving towards an Scandinavian sphere of influence.?

    It's rather the already well known "we're all immigrants" scheme.

    But it's getting ridiculous when it's about lineages that are more than 5000 years old, now doesnt it?

    I'm no expert but are Scottish people Celts mainly with some Germanic elements like Saxons mixed in there, as also Viking raiders with bloodlines there. But now BBC is saying they had a study and now there is all kinds of genectic bloodlines mixed in as well. I just do not subscribe to the BBC study.

    Wasn't a DNA study done on Adolph Hitler a couple of years ago and supposedly he had Berber blood or North African ancestry in him. I don't know about those DNA tests, Swabbing your mouth and sending into lab results. Of course if you go back several thousands of years anything is possible but I just do not believe it. Why Scotland which is tucked in a little corner of Europe become this ethnic mixing hotbed. How the hell did Asians get in the mix as well. Did they meander across Europe and didn't stop till they got to the highlands? And this thing with African slaves having affairs with white men, another way to discredit white people. It seems to me these studies are done in trying to discredit Europes rich history. Am I wrong,no?sherlock:arabs:
    Here you go multiculture at it's best.

    First of all I wonder what Scottish they used for this research, which include how they defined Scottish.
    The sense of honor is of so fine and delicate a nature that
    it is only to be met with in minds which are naturally noble or
    cultivated by good examples and a refined education.

    Haha . This reminds of me an article I read claiming that we descended from the Magyars. It's all a load of shite with the goal to make multi-culturalism more acceptable in Scotland. The BBC's attempts to help spread multi-culturalism never fails to make me laugh, no matter how outlandish their claims are, they're still able to publish them with a straight face. I don't think they'll ever learn . Luckily most people I know aren't stupid enough to believe in these claims.

    Scotland's DNA will soon be renamed Britain's DNA as the project aims to widen its genetic study to include the English, Welsh and Irish.
    Look out Britain! Pretty soon we'll be told that England once hosted a sphinx, The Welsh are descended from the Amerindians and the Irish don't actually drink .

    The project found that Scotland has almost 100 different groups of male ancestry from across Europe and further afield.

    Sorry, BBC, but recent immigrants don't count.

    BBC - untrusted source

    I wouldn't trust this as it's coming from the usual BBC led liberal establishment.

    The BBC are chief promoters of "multiculturalism" and "diversity" ,it is pumped out daily in their broadcast's - even their BBC Alba, regularly show ethnic minorities when there are in fact practically none in Gaeldom.

    Tom Conti isn't Scottish, both his parents arrived from Tuscani
    in Italy , so how are Scots meant to extrapolate and deduce anything from it.

    The sub-plot behind this is mass immigration. Like much of Europe it is going through a rapid demographic change. Africans and South Asians are arriving at the rate of 1% per annum, opinion polls consistently show a majority against.

    By giving blanket coverage to studies such as this - it led the 6.30 pm news bulletin - it seeks to reinforce the "we are all immigrants anyway so why complain about current inflows" narrative, currently being pushed to justify the record high immigration rates from the third world.

    Yeah I was wondering what that had to do with the state of ethnic Scottish ancestry considering he isn't an ethnic Scot to begin with. Which probably tells us what we need to know about the definiton of "Scottish" they were using during these test.

    Maybe the varied background of the Scottish is due to admixture which took place during the Roman occupation of Britain. Only one in ten of the soldiers stationed in Britain were of Roman extraction. Most were from other parts of the their empire.
