  1. Saw the new one earlier today and thought of you.

    Interesting things shown looking at the two maps map: N and Mid Welsh grumpily migrate to the nearest English town; S Welsh stay in S Wales whilst Cornish & Devonish move to Bristol.

    And, most horrifically, there’s no genetic concept of a Yorkshireman…


  2. I don’t understand the genetic map at all. Are they suggesting that ‘West Yorkshire’ or ‘South Pembrokeshire’ are ethnicities? I thought the thrust of the study was whether people were from German, Norse, Celtic etc backgrounds? And why are whole areas of the country left barren?


    1. I think they used some sort of clustering algo to pick out markers that are stable over time and linked to geographies – “norse” isn’t a gene, after all.
