    Are there Viking genes left? If so, where?

    Do they exist and where?
    EDIT: JUST WANTED TO ADD:To the moderator, please fix any of the pic links or text that I put up if it's garbled. For some reason it didn't seem to work right last time I made a post. If I am supposed to use html code please let me know.
    To everyone, Thank you very much for all of the info. I guess an even more interesting question is, what area has the most viking dna/genes/strains, etc. and what modern day person looks the closest to a viking? Any examples? I saw 13th warrior the other day(yes I know it is horribly inacurate but..) and there were a few people that I would just guess might have looked like vikings. For one, a very mean/scary looking redhead man with a beard. He gets killed earlier in the movie. I think his head is chopped off by the ven horde. Some of you may know who I'm talking about. I don't know his acting name but he is pretty intimidating looking. Then there is another older man with blondish hair who I think has the look of a viking(don't know his real last name either. And also an older man with gray hair that is in a long braided ponytail. And maybe the redhead young guy who dies in that challenge/sword fight to the death has a little bit. But this is only instinct I'm going on. Also, even though Vladimer Kulich(who plays beowulf or bullvye(?) has darker hair in real life, He does seem to have a strong viking voice and maybe viking genes? Or maybe he is just a strong, tall slavic. Which brings me to my next question, Do northern-western slavs, and most european peoples etc. get their height genes from vikings and teutons or do they have their own height genes??
    Also, when I see tall people from australia, or maybe in the areas where people talked about earlier(that would have viking strains) "A FEW" of them had darker hair. Like brown, not black. But I think that is just because blonde hair is recessive to some degree and those people needed other blonde mates to keep it going?
    I know these are a lot of questions but I'm very interested in hearing any theories on these questions.
    Also let me say that I think some balics, people from lituania especially(even though there population is small) seem to be very tall and perhaps they have some viking genes?
    For instance, Arvydas Sabonis was 7'4 335 lbs. late in his career. He doesn't have the blonde hair but he may have other viking genes for height, strength, etc. Also Zydrunas ilgauskas, 7'3. I don't really have time to find there best pictures on the net, so you can look them up if you wish.
    Here is 6'9 275 lbs. Kaspars kambala from latvia
    Look at this guy named alex koul from belorus. It is said that belo-RUS(viking tribe) has some of the most viking genes in lower russia. This guy Koul is 7'1 and grew to 330 lbs.
    Now look at this northern german with a similar last and first name. Alexander Kuehl. He is 7'2 335 lbs. and from Rendsberg Germany which could be almost where tuetons were, or say where Many danish vikings were?
    And Chris Kaman, they call him 'caveman', which isn't very nice but he sort of reminds me of a viking. He has blondish hair with some red in it. I'm assuming it's a german last name. He is from the midwest or northern midwest in michigan. He shoots bows and arrows too. the first pic is a joking pic someone made
    I was also just researching some of the tallest people in the world and most were from the very northern scotland area it seemed. Some also from the baltic regions, the netherlands.
    Here are some other tall and big people who play sports. There's a bunch more I could name.
    shawn bradley 7'7 born in germanyeurelijus zukauskas 7'2robert gulyas 7'1 340 lbs. hungary(some vikings settled this area I think)aleksandros melniks 7'3 latviajanusz myslowiecki 7'3 polanddenis ershov 7'3 russiaRemon van de haar 7'4 netherlandsalexei savrasenko 7'2 russia? purasson 7'5 latviaAlso, A lot of the strong man competition people seem to be dominated by people from the north regions like scandinavia or the balttics.
    I'm also very concerned with German, scandinavian and baltic countries with weak immigration policies or entering into the EU as this will eventually bring non northern european stock into the regions. It is important that distinct people, cultures and genes are preserved, as it is our differences that make us great. =)
    For myself I am not extremely tall. About 6'3 but I have an intimidating face and blonde/red hair with some red streaks in it. I weigh about 235 lbs. all muscle.

    Actually, especially among certain Cornish (and perhaps Shetland Islands if I recall correctly) there has been found a gene that produces some sort of arthritis and joint pain esp. in the hands, which has been linked back to the Vikings, and so many of their many descendents today have this ailment.

    I would assume there are Viking genes among the Scandinavians.
    Which would mean there are alot of Viking genes in the Upper Midwest of America.

    "...The moral man is a lower species than the immoral, a weaker species; indeed - he is a type in regard to morality, but not a type in himself; a copy...the measure of his value lies outside him. ... I assess the power of a will by how much resistance, pain, torture it endures and knows how to turn to its advantage; I do not account the evil and painful character of existence a reproach to it, but hope rather that it will one day be more evil and painful than hitherto..."

    Do they exist and where?
    Ever heard of Danes, Swedes, Norwegians, Icelanders, Faroe Islanders, Shetlanders, Orcadians?!

    Re: Are there Viking genes left, if so, where?

    Besides there being people with Viking genes all over Scandinavia today, you can find them in Scotland, England, Ireland, Iceland, Normandy, parts of Russia and possibly the Ukraine. In addition you can find them outside Europe in the Northern United States and Canada. I'm not so sure how many Danes live in Greenland, but I would bet that there is a good number of them since Greenland belongs to Denmark.

    What do you think about the possibility of Viking genes being found in Australia or New Zealand?

    Absolutely, their genes are in Oceania. Like you said the English, Scots and Irish all have varying amounts of Norse ancestry. These 3 peoples, I assume make up the majority of the populations of New Zealand and Australia. There must be Viking descendents there. How couldn't there be? Besides I have always had the impression that Australia was quite Nordic racially.

    To my knowledge, the presence is in both; but, only via modern migration/colonization.

    AW: Re: AW: Are there Viking genes left, if so, where?

    Actually, Viking (I suppose your definition concerning VIKINGS is "Scandinavian") genes are found of course among most of the Norwegians, Swedes, Danes, some Finns, sometimes among Northern Germans and of course in Great Britain, especially in the east of England (Danish), the western part of Scotland (Norwegians) and the far east of Ireland (mainly Norwegians). Besides these countries, there are people with a more or less viking-background in the USA and in parts of eastern-Europe.
