Hi Guys,

I won't repeat the whole thing here - but if you haven't already, check out the thread over at the AncientDNA section on the recently published paper on Viking DNA finds. Fascinating stuff, and a vigorous debate going on.

True to excellent form, Mike has posted over there and identified three of the finds as L513 men. Lots of comments on men being taken by the Vikings as slaves from Ireland/the Scottish Hebrides of course. Maybe this can regenerate some L513 debate over here?

Exciting stuff!

Jon
