    T1a1 among the English/ Anglo-Saxons

    Does anyone on here have haplogroup T1a1 or a sub group of it? It was fount among much higher levels in Anglo-Saxon England but is comparetavly rare among today’s natives? Does anyone know why this could be? And does anyone have it and can trace there maternal line back to England?

    Non being confrontational but is there evidence for that statement or anything known about it's distribution within the UK?

    There were the remains of T1 and T1a found at Norwich:

    But I agree, too much can be made from too few samples.

    I was just wondering whether it might relate to an earlier British population? The maternal ancestors might not have been Anglo Saxon although they were buried as A/S?
    I'm not arguing that they weren't Anglo Saxons, I don't know what it's modern distribution and frequency is compared to this period.

    Eddie Izzard was in a TV programme and his mt DNA is T. It said that it did not occur in Britain pre Viking.

    I tend to be a bit sceptical about such claims particularly where, in this case, it appears to be associated with Anglo Saxon burial pre - dating the arrival of the Vikings by several hundred years.
    However I think earlier population movement between Scandinavia or elsewhere and Britain is entirely possible.
