Sorry for the late response! Hope you had a Merry Christmas!!
Funny how that lineage stuff works isn't it?! Yep... when you come
down to it - I am such a mix that calling myself anything in
particular sort of loses its meaning ::laughing:: But its still fun to
Two good books I have found in reference to the DNA tracks...
"The Seven Daughters of Eve" by Bryan Sykes (...'A discussion of the
history of genetics and descriptions of the early landmark work of
Sykes and his associates culminate with his finding that 90 percent of
modern Europeans are descendents of just seven women who lived 45,000
to 10,000 years ago. Brief biographies serve to place these "seven
daughters" into historical context as understood by archaeology. ')
and I am now reading "Saxons, Vikings, and Celts: The Genetic Roots of
Britain and Ireland" (...'Through a systematic, ten-year DNA survey of
more than 10,000 volunteers, Bryan Sykes has traced the true genetic
makeup of British Islanders and their descendants. This historical
travelogue and genetic tour of the fabled isles, which includes
accounts of the Roman invasions and Norman conquests, takes readers
from the Pontnewydd cave in North Wales, where a 300,000-year- old
tooth was discovered, to the resting place of "The Red Lady" of
Paviland, whose anatomically modern body was dyed with ochre by her
grieving relatives nearly 29,000 years ago.') also by Bryan Sykes
Both interesting reading from the one of the fellows who pioneered
ancestral DNA research.
Have a VERY Happy New Year!
