  • The Origins of the British

    For a non-specialist in genetics but with a love of history, I found the book "hard-going". To some extent the technical complexity of the book was compensated by summarizing paragraphs at the end of chapters. Thus, I gathered an overall understanding of the author's argument. Subsequent reading in this field has led me to believe that his work is at least partly outdated. This is due to the fact that many of his conclusions were drawn from a relatively small number of DNA test results of excavated corpses. In the 10 years since publication, many more test results have become available, and more will be, with the result that hypotheses about the origins of the British people will for long be in a state of flux. It also seems that during this past 10 years, the debate about cultural continuity v migration has moved back in favour of the migrationists as the vehicle of change. The book will be of most appeal to a reader more interested in the development of the science of genetics as applied to history who would them compare it to more recent publications.

    Thanks for your feedback!
