Are Lowland Scots, Celts, Picts or Anglo Saxons?
The "Blood of the Vikings" site did not give any statistical data on
British demographics. Therefore the only research that I could use was
that provided in the link below:
I don't see what you are arguing. Are you saying that Anglo-Saxons
were not a minority in the south of England? If they were not a
minority then why do the samples from the south of England cluster
more closely with the Basque than with the Danish samples?
Again are you saying that Anglo-Saxons were a majority in the south of
England? If you look at Goldstein's data the only place where
Germanics were in large numbers was in the Danelaw and surrounding
areas. Outside this area the Anglo-Saxons were apparently outnumbered
by the non-Anglo-Saxon population.
According to Goldstein's data, in most of England - outside of the
Danelaw territories - the Germanics were outnumbered by the
non-Germanics which would explain why the samples outside of the
Danelaw territories cluster more closely with the Basques than with
the Danes. If you believe that Anglo-Saxons outnumbered the
non-Anglo-Saxons then please explain why the data does not back up
