    Study: British Have Changed Little Since Ice Age

    Despite invasions by Saxons, Romans, Vikings, Normans, and others, the genetic makeup of today's white Britons is much the same as it was 12,000 ago, a new book claims.

    In The Tribes of Britain, archaeologist David Miles says around 80 percent of the genetic characteristics of most white Britons have been passed down from a few thousand Ice Age hunters.
    Full story.

    I would love to see such a study on swedes. That would be very intresting.

    But the article clearly shows that racial homogenity is a fact. We aren´t as mixed as multi culturalist wan´t us to believe.
    End? No, the journey doesn't end here; there's another path, one that we all must take. The gray rain-curtain of this world rolls back, and it will change to silver glass, and then you see it: white shores and beyond them, a far green country under a swift sunrise...

    Yeah, sounds like the British are really "diverse" as the PC crowd claims... what a joke. 12,000 years of racial purity, and now awash with miscegenation. People need to wake up.

    "The most visible British genetic marker is red hair, he added. The writer Tacitus noted the Romans' surprise at how common it was when they arrived 2,000 years ago.

    "It's something that foreign observers have often commented on," Miles said. "Recent studies have shown that there is more red hair in Scotland and Wales than anywhere else in the world. It's a mutation that probably occurred between 8,000 and 10,000 years ago.""

    This is quite interesting study in my opinion...

    Traditionally it is suggested that Nordid Britons are descendants of Vikings, is it not? Perhaps this is not quite the case. No one knows for sure how migrations have happened during thousands of years... The fact is though, that the ice withdrew from south to north.

    Anyway, this study really sounds like a slap against the face of the multicultists

    Wouldn't this also suggest that the Nordish populations are less vulnerable than previously thought? I mean, surely the population of Ice Age Britain was much smaller than the present one, and yet they survived the Roman, Viking, Breton etc invasions more or less unscathed. I would interpret this to mean that if the Nordish aren't aren't totally overrun we will still remain essentially the same.

    (Btw don't take the above to mean that I would accept race-mixing and "assimilation" on even a small scale. I'm just saying that even if it happens, maybe it isn't the end of the world after all )

    Interesting. I read about a study that suggested the English and Welsh were quite distinct from each other genetically, at least per y chromosome male ancestry. The study seemed to suggest the Britons had been supplanted by a large 'Germanic' invasion, the people that founded the English nation.

    Tradition dictates that Britons are Celtic folk mixed with some proto-Semites who were occupying the islands. After that, Nordid admixture occurred in plenty, as did motion of central European tribes to the islands.

    Among white people, even in the Southern Part of the JCSA (USA), admixture is not very common - especially outside of the cities. Further, it is generally easy to spot, as mixing radically different things usually produces a "spare parts" look.

    Interestingly, in a modern time people regard "studies" as absolute, but very few of them are. It's more sensible to view them as clues than reality-changing totalities. I think there's some truth to the one you posted above; the Welsh and Cornish were always rumored to have Scythian, Basque and/or Phoenician roots.

    Many of these genetic studies are only seeing markers, not overlap. So if they see markers from an original population, they declare the population is unchanged, rather than noting the simple truth: its markers are now part of a markedly different hybrid.

    Are you referring to the Semitic merchants who mined tin from Cornwall, neoclassical?
