    Did The Scottish (and Irish) Settle Iceland A Century Before The Norse?

    Although this is not a DNA study, I suspect any Y DNA haplogroups would include, L21, DF21, DF49, L513 on one of the other SNPs with a strong Irish Scots frequency. Previous mtDNA studies found a high percentage of Irish and Scots maternal DNA in Iceland possibly a result of captives being resettled in Iceland.

    "Remarkably similar carvings and simple cross sculptures mark special sites or places once sacred, spanning a zone stretching from the Irish and Scottish coasts to Iceland. We can look to Skellig Michael, which rises from the sea 12 kilometers off the southwest Irish coast; to Aird a’Mhòrain on the Outer Hebridean island of North Uist; to the Isle of Noss, Shetland; and to Heimaklettur cliff face in Iceland’s Westman Islands.

    Also in southern Iceland, a number of the 200 man-made caves found there are marked by similar rock-cut sculpture. And these dark remote places suggest a different answer to a puzzle that we thought we had solved a long time ago.

    Iceland was one of the last island groups on Earth to be settled by people. As you might expect, the late-ninth-century settlement by Viking-Age Scandinavians has long been of keen interest to the local people. These artificial caves suggest that we should re-think our traditional histories. The Viking arrival may indeed have been pre-dated by Celtic-speaking people from Scotland and Ireland in around AD 800.......

    The flowering of Gaelic monasticism is well established for the early medieval period, with individuals and monastic foundations of the “Irish school” penetrating large areas of Europe and accounts of north Atlantic travels and settlements."

    Thanks Gerard, very interesting. I'm sure some L513, along with the others, must have entered Iceland from the isles.

    If I remember rightly in fact, according to your excellent pinterest visuals, L513 is the 2nd most common L21 subgroup in Ireland, after DF49. I watched a lot of the Genetic Genealogy Ireland presentations on Youtube, which are great, but was mildly disappointed that L513 didn't seem to get much discussion time, in contrast to DF49 and DF21. A shame, especially if it is as frequent as it seems to be...

    Glad to see that "At the roots of European history" is now published on Kindle.
    "On the Pathways of the World"
    I was happy to contribute to the research.

    "Crises are a time for reflection and regeneration. After the fall of the Roman Empire in 476AD, monks, philosophers, teachers and scribes, coming from Ireland, brought a new wave of re-evangelization and moral-cultural renaissance to a Europe, ravaged by the decadence of moral values, by barbaric invasions and by droughts. Their work of re-evangelization and cultural re-vival produced a true spiritual and civic reunification of the entire European Continent."
