    The genes from Iceland's first settlers reveal the origin of their population in detail

    In just over 1,000 years, Icelanders have gone through numerous changes in their gene pool, to the extent that Iceland's first settlers, who came to the island from Norway and the British and Irish isles between the years 870 and 930, are much more similar to the inhabitants of their original home countries than to Iceland's present-day inhabitants.This is one of the main conclusions of a study carried out by an international team of scientists which included members of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC). For the first time, the researchers, whose results are published in the journal Science, analysed the ancient genomes of 25 individuals who lived in Iceland during the colonisation of the island.With a population of 330,000, Iceland is a country with its own peculiarities. Genes are no exception: isolation and inbreeding throughout its history make this northern Atlantic island a paradise for genetic studies.The analysis of ancient skeletal remains- more specifically the teeth belonging to the first generations to populate the island- has shed more light on the genetic evolution which led to a combination of genes coming from Scotland, Ireland and Scandinavia. According to the conclusions of this study, the Norwegian genetic fingerprint of present day Icelanders stands at 70%, while, in the case of the island's original founders, it was 57%.

    Tired

    From what I remember reading/hearing, Iceland was founded by Viking men who kidnapped women from the British Isles.

    Most of my ancestry is British. I can just imagine, back in the day, centuries ago, handsome Vikings storming the coastal villages. If they looked like this Norwegian, I'd gladly go.

    Elizabeth, do you mean British or do you mean English? Two entirely separate identities and ethnicities.
    You are somewhat obsessed by that hairy young chap! He keeps appearing in threads!
    Iceland (never been there) does fascinate me somewhat. It is the only Germanic country which has maintained an authentic Germanic surnaming system. I am also grateful to them for the Eddas and Sagas.

    I meant British. I have ancestors from all four countries of the United Kingdom. I am part English, Scottish, Welsh, and Ulster Scots.

    I don't recall posting him on this forum before but I did on two other forums.

    The last photo of him is my desktop (laptop) background picture.

    I searched my posts and I did post him here in the "Are You A Nordicist?" thread. I forgot about that thread.
    I guess I am obsessed with him. He's very handsome.
