    Mapped: DNA Testing Shows the Most Anglo-Saxon Regions in UK

    The analysis of the genetic history of two million people worldwide by family history website Ancestry was based on data collated from the AncestryDNA home DNA test that examines a person's entire genome via a simple saliva sample.

    They found that the average UK resident is 36.94 per cent British, or Anglo-Saxon, 21.59 per cent Irish (Celtic) and 19.91 per cent Western European - the region covered today by France and Germany.

    The next three regional ethnicities in the average UK resident are Scandinavia, which accounted for 9.20 per cent of the genetic heritage, the Iberian Peninsula, with 3.05 per cent of their gene coming from Spain or Portugal, and Italy and Greece, which accounted for 1.98 per cent of their DNA.

    - English people have significantly less Irish ancestry - just 20 per cent of their genetic make-up - on average compared to people living in Scotland (43.84 per cent), Wales (31.99 per cent) and Northern Ireland (48.49 per cent).

    - The English have the highest amount of Scandinavian (9.39 percent) and French/German ancestry (20.45 percent).

    - People living in Scotland have the highest amount of Finnish/Northwest Russian heritage (1.31 percent), which is perhaps explained by their geographic proximity.

    - Welsh residents have the highest proportion of ancestry from the Iberian Peninsula (three percent).

    - London is the most ethnically diverse region, having the highest amount of heritage from 17 of the 26 regions analysed.

    - Yorkshire was found to have the highest percentage of Anglo-Saxon ancestry (41.17 per cent)

    The East Midlands has the most Scandinavian ancestry (10.37 per cent) as well as the most Eastern European (2.47 per cent).

    - The East of England has the most Italian/Greek (2.53 per cent) and French/German ancestry (22.52 per cent), as well as the highest amount from the Iberian Peninsula (3.43 per cent).

    I am waiting for my results, it costs £100. :-)

    The 3.05 per cent coming from Spain or Portugal is probably Beaker Folk, ultimately coming north from the Maghreb.

    Some of their French/German ancestry is presumably mislabelled Scandinavian somehow, because Danish settlement was more extensive in southern Britain than this study suggests. Remember Yorkshire was speaking a West Scandinavian first language till William the Bastard.

    The Finnish/Northwest Russian ancestry in Scotland is presumably Sami because David Macritchie was right about the Islanders, but wrong about the Picts. In former times the Sami people used to cross to Scotland in kayaks and people remembered this in their oral stories about Finnmen from Norway-land.

    Heather Michelle Collins gets 3% ancestry from Mali. This is surely from the white Eurafrican element in Malian Touaregs broadly similar to the British Atlanto-Mediterranean type.

    - Yorkshire was found to have the highest percentage of Anglo-Saxon ancestry (41.17 per cent)
    Yorkshire comes out top again.

    These categories - Anglo-Saxon, German, south Scandinavian (Denmark/Norway) can be hard to makeup, but the Finnish admixture is interesting. Catterick mentions the Sami, some of this could have been brought over by the Norse too.

    The Irish category should really be called just Celtic - this doesn't necessarily mean ancestry from Ireland (though millions of Britons have this), but shared Celtic heritage from prehistory.

    Flag-Soil out of interest who's doing your test? Ancestry? I know there was a thread on Skadi about this some time ago. I'm interested in the DNA test but cautious about the testers - but I've never looked into it seriously....

    There are a number of testing companies, some test for broad haplogroup, but AncestryDNA breaks results down into English, Germanic, Celtic, Nordic, Med, which is of most interest to Brits.

    This blogger tried two tests:

    More state sponsored propaganda.

    We get it, none of us are 100% English were all just a bunch of mongrels so we shouldn't kick up a fuss about mass migration.

    Does that about cover it?
    Anglo-Saxons are forbidden the same level of racial consciousness of other groups (even amongst Whites).

    While our many accomplishments are forgotten, there is no end of blaming Anglo-Saxons for the problems and inadequacies of the world (White & non-white alike).

    While it is possible to distinguish the DNA of a Norwegian Viking from that of an Anglo-Saxon, it is impossible to distinguish between the Danish Vikings and Anglo-Saxons, because they look the same.

    And historians believe the Vikings who invaded the North East were mainly from Denmark.

    From looking at DNA Sir Walter discovered that three quarters of the regional gene pool tested in the North East matches the Anglo Saxon genetic signature.

    But it is impossible to say how much of this was brought over by the Anglo-Saxons, or later by their descendents, the Danish Vikings. This suggests that genetically Geordies are not a breed apart from the rest of the country.

    Jack's gene pool was found to be a massive seven times more strongly Anglo-Saxon than Celtic.

    Wonder what'd Newcastle have scored.

    Here's mine if you're interested. They've recently added this "ancestor map" to show you where your ancestors migrated to the US. Interestingly, this is slightly different from my 23andMe test, but not so much so as to be alarmed.

    The categories they use don't make much sense.

    The original People of the British Isles results from 2012 (they later excluded Irish) for the central & southern English:

    5% Scandinavian
    50% German/Belgian
    25% French
    20% Irish
