Hi All,

Wanted to post this, although I'm sure you're all aware of it


Here's the BBC report:


And finally a very recent explanatory PDF on their research site:


What caught my eye from an L513 viewpoint is the fact there are two distinct Scottish/N Irish groupings: one with N Ireland and West Scotland; one with N Ireland and S Scotland/N England. They considered this noteworthy. I'm sure L513 folks are in that mix. This passage from the PDF interested me, but struck me as a bit too generalistic:

"The split in the Northern Ireland group, one with the Scottish highlands and the other with the lowlands, suggests association with the people of Dalriada and with the Picts, respectively, a separation of clans that existed around 600 AD."

Lots to chew over, I'd love to hear some thoughts.
