    According to Living DNA 16% of my ancestry is from this region. Any of you British people can share any general information about this region I would appreciate it?

    It's quite a big region by English standards, with some stunning scenery. It was settled by the Angles and Vikings, and before them by the Brigantes Iron Age tribe. Not sure where to start... Just don't get caught up on the Moors in a snowstorm like I did last winter. It comes on incredibly quickly. Basically, it's a beautiful part of England with nice friendly people. Well worth a visit if you want to research your ancestors.
    Living DNA's former Cautious mode:
    Wales-related ancestry: 86.8%
    Cornwall: 8%
    North England-related ancestry: 5.2%
    Y line: Peak District, England. Big Y match: Scania, Sweden; TMRCA 1,250 ybp (YFull);
    mtDNA: traces to Glamorgan, Wales
    Mother's Y: traces to Llanvair Discoed, Wales

    I was going to mention the Viking element. I recently read Bloodfeud by Richard Fletcher which touches on some events (in the 10th and 11th centuries) in the area.

    Excellent book I thought. School history should have included more of this and less of flying butresses on churches.
