How British are you? Mapped: DNA testing shows the most Anglo-Saxon regions in UK

Post by Didge on Thu Jul 28, 2016 7:23 am

With its inimitable humour, love of tea and dedication to cricket in all weathers, there can be little doubt the Great British spirit is alive and well in Yorkshire. But it has today gone one step further in cementing its reputation as God’s Own County, after a study found it is the most “British” region in the UK. A study of the DNA of people living in Yorkshire has revealed the country to have the highest percentage of Anglo-Saxon ancestry, at 41.17 per cent compared with a national average of just 36.94 per cent.

I would add this shows the Uk has had by far some of the longest immigration going over 4000 years than many other nations on this planet by a long margin.
That the Uk is made up of multiple ethnic people over time.
