Here is more evidence that modern White Europeans, are not an evolution of the original inhabitants of Europe, who migrated there from Africa and the "Middle East" in very ancient times; but rather the descendants of recent Eurasian steppe migrants and invaders that gradually displaced and absorbed the original black/brown Europeans through massive population migrations of their kind to Europe:[ (Btw South-East Asian=South Asian in this article, they made a mistake with that):
Scottish people's DNA study could 'rewrite nation's history'
Evidence of African, Arabian, south-east Asian and Siberian ancestry in Scotland, says author of book tracing genetic journey

A large scale study of Scottish people's DNA is threatening to "rewrite the nation's history", according to author Alistair Moffat.
Scotland, he told the Edinburgh international book festival, despite a long-held belief that its ethnic make-up was largely Scots, Celtic, Viking and Irish, was in fact "one of the most diverse nations on earth".
"The explanation is simple. We are a people on the edge of beyond; on the end of a massive continent. Peoples were migrating northwest; and they couldn't get any further. We have collected them."
He and his colleagues have found West African, Arabian, south-east Asian and Siberian ancestry in Scotland. "The West African ancestry mostly originates in the 18th century, so it is almost certainly to do with the slave trade," he said.
David Lammy, MP for Tottenham, whose immediate ancestors are from the Caribbean, also revealed at the festival this week that DNA analysis had shown he has Orcadian ancestry – also likely to relate to British involvement in the Atlantic slave trade.
One per cent of all Scottish men, said Moffat, have Berber ancestry – why, he says, remains a mystery, though he believes that the penetration of people from the medieval caliphate of Cordoba "must have been immensely important". Moffat said his colleagues had also discovered DNA originating from Roman-period Illyria, the area occupied by modern Croatia, which may relate to Roman occupation of lowland Scotland.
Many of Moffat and Wilson's findings are laid out in their book The Scots: A Genetic Journey. But research continues apace, and most recent finding suggests that porridge has been a crucial factor in the nation's early history, Moffat said.
Until recently, he said, it had been believed that farming arrived incrementally in Scotland, around 3,000 years ago, by a process of slow and gradual adoption, by women, of new techniques. But their recent DNA research suggests something quite different, he said: that it arrived quickly via young male immigrants from what is now Germany.
These young men, he said, brought brand-new techniques with them, planting grass-derived crops that could be turned into porridge and fed to young children. This new improved food production reduced the period, argued Moffat, that the hunter-gatherer mothers had to devote to breast-feeding, and thus increased their fertility. This led to a population explosion, he said, laying the seeds of a recognisable society in northern Britain. "It is a revelation. Porridge, and I'm not joking about this, is absolutely crucial to our history."
Not every analysis of DNA has delivered welcome results. DNA analysis on Moffat himself – a proud Scottish Borders man – showed that his ancestry was English. "We don't offer counselling for that," he said.
^^^This article is yet more proof that confirms Mike's and my "Albino Indo-Europeans/Eurasian white steppe migrants" mass migrating and invading Europe relatively recently in the ancient time period to early middle ages period, and mixing up and whitening up the original black/brown populations of Europe gradually. These White Indo-European steppe migrants and invaders came to Europe from Central Asia and Siberia as indicated in my links in the last post. This is also confirmation of my idea that modern White Europeans are the combination of the albinos of the original black/brown African/Near-Eastern settlers to Europe, whom settled in Northern Europe as a place of refuge and a suitable habitat for themselves, and White albino eurasian Indo-European steppe migrants, aka Mike's Dravidian albinos, whom arrived to Europe in big population waves from Central Asia and Siberia starting in the late Neolithic to ending around the start of the dark ages; cross-breeding together in the different regional quadrants of Europe in different time periods in differing percentages to create the Modern White European ethnic groups we know of today!
More evidence of that can be found, again in the links and articles I provided in my last post above in this thread!
And of course stuff like this is also a nice supplement to the above article and provides a better picture and more clarification!
Here is another article that confirms what I have been saying in this thread, as well as the professor that wrote the articles I provided links for:
Orkney Islanders have Siberian relatives
A new study on ancient human migrations suggests that Orcadians and Siberians are closely related, writes Roger Highfield.
Orkney Islanders are more closely related to people in Siberia and in Pakistan than those in Africa and the near East, according to a novel method to chart human migrations.
The surprising findings come from a new way to infer ancient human movements from the variation of DNA in people today, conducted by a team from the University of Oxford and University College Cork, which has pioneered a technique that analyses the entire human genetic makeup, or genome.
Although it provides relative genetic contributions of one group to another, rather than timings, it confirms how the first modern humans came out of Africa 50,000 years ago, mostly from a group in southern Africa called the San.
But the subsequent movements around the world, via the near east, central Asia and then Europe, turned up some surprises including a strong similarity between the Sindih, a people who once lived in Pakistan, and Orkney Islanders, or Orcadians.
In turn, the Orcadians are closely related to the people who first colonised Siberia.
"Reindeer herders (a people called the Yakut) are indeed unexpectedly related to British, because one of their strongest signals of ancestry is from Orcadians, the only British population in the sample" says Dr Daniel Falush of University College Cork, a co-author on the paper in the journal PLoS Genetics.
The Orcadians, or those closely related to them in central/northern Europe, also contribute to two other North East Asian populations, the Hezhen and Han from Northern China.
"Humans like to tell stories and amongst the most captivating is the story of the global spread of modern humans from their original homeland in Africa," says Dr Falush.
"Traditionally this has been the preserve of anthropologists but geneticists are now starting to make an important contribution."
Previous methods have either concentrated on one part of the human genetic code (for example, just the Y-chromosome) or a greatly oversimplified model of heredity.
"Our technique enables us to identify more subtle details about genetic contributions than other methods," says Dr Garrett Hellenthal of the University of Oxford, a co-author.
"By incorporating the inheritance of 'blocks' of DNA between generations, rather than just individual genes, it captures a panoramic view of the sharing of patterns of DNA across the entire human genome," he says.
"This allows us to consider a vast number of possible colonisation scenarios - not just the ones people have already thought of - and use an algorithm to determine the most likely migration routes."
The new technique was used to analyse 2540 genetic markers using DNA data from 927 individuals of diverse ethnicity whose DNA was collected by the Human Diversity Project.
The researchers believe their method can cope with much larger datasets with over 500,000 genetic markers and are now working on a detailed picture of migrations into Europe.
^^^Take into account that Scotland IS VERY VERY VERY FAR FROM SIBERIA DISTANCE WISE! You have to cross the equivalent of three continental America's diameter distance wise, to get from Siberia to Scotland!
Study reveals 'extraordinary' DNA of people in Scotland
The DNA of people living in Scotland has "extraordinary" and "unexpected" diversity, according to a new study.
The Scotland's DNA project, led by Edinburgh University's Dr Jim Wilson, has tested almost 1,000 Scots in the last four months to determine the genetic roots of people in the country.
The project discovered four new male lineages, which account for one in 10 Scottish men.
It also found that actor Tom Conti is related to Napoleon Bonaparte.
Scotland's DNA was set up by Dr Wilson along with historian Alistair Moffat, the current rector of St Andrews University.
Using new technology, scientists were able to pinpoint a participant's DNA marker, from which they tracked the person's history and lineage.
Conti and Napoleon both share the M34 marker, which is Saracen in origin.
The project found that Scotland has almost 100 different groups of male ancestry from across Europe and further afield.
More than 150 different types of female DNA from Europe, Asia and Africa were discovered.
Researchers believe that Scotland's location could be a factor in the "astonishing and unique" origins of people from the country.
In a statement, Dr Wilson and Mr Moffat said: "Perhaps geography, Scotland's place at the farthest north-western end of the European peninsula, is the reason for great diversity.
"For many thousands of years, migrants could move no further west. Scotland was the end of many journeys."
Scotland's DNA also found that more than 1% of all Scotsmen are direct descendants of the Berber and Tuareg tribesmen of the Sahara, a lineage which is around 5600 years old.
Royal Stewart DNA was confirmed in 15% of male participants with the Stewart surname. They are directly descended from the royal line of kings.
Scientists believe comedian and presenter Fred MacAuley's ancestors were slaves, sold at the great slave market in Dublin in the 9th Century, despite his name suggesting a Viking heritage.
They said MacAuley's slave ancestor was taken by ship to the Hebrides and had an affair with his owner's wife, thereby intruding DNA into the MacAulay line.
Scotland's DNA will soon be renamed Britain's DNA as the project aims to widen its genetic study to include the English, Welsh and Irish.
Quintessentially "British" Village Traces Their Genetic Ancestry
The village of Bledington is like the archetypal view of Britain, complete with cute cottages, a 12th-century church, Morris dancing poles, and pubs full of warm beer. Therefore, a new genetic test has decided to test just how “British” they are by looking at their DNA.
First thing’s first, as any British person will tell you, the idea of “Britishness” is a confusing thing (even without getting genetics involved). The first settlers on the British Isles obviously came from somewhere outside of Britain. Then over the following millennia, Britain spent a lot of its time being invaded by other parts of the world, including the Romans, the Anglo-Saxons, and the Normans. Around the 19th century, Britain started invading huge parts of the world. This means this little island has always been mixing with other parts of the world, both genetically and culturally.
Therefore, there’s no set thing that defines Britishness. As this genetic study also highlights, even this quintessentially British village is a great mish-mash of ancestry.
The study by genealogy company Ancestry collected saliva samples from 120 people in the village and asked them a few questions about their heritage. Population data says that 94 percent of the village deem themselves as “White British” and 56 percent of the study group didn’t expect to find results outside of the UK.
Nevertheless, the analysis of the DNA results revealed that the average resident was 42 percent Anglo-Saxon. This was the dominant culture of Britain from the 5th century CE, consisting of northern Germanic tribes who migrated from continental Europe and indigenous British groups who took up parts of their culture. A further 20.61 percent were from Western Europe, 17.03 percent Irish, 10.06 percent Scandinavian, and 2.8 percent Iberian (the peninsula of Spain and Portugal). Many others found traces of genetic heritage from Native America, Asia, the Middle East, Africa, and Melanesia.
A fair few of the village’s residents were pretty shocked by their results. Local resident Guy Chittenden, 24, said he always strongly believed he was “100 percent British.”
“All I know is English people in my family – and as far as I am aware I don’t know any relatives outside of Britain,” he said in a statement.
When he received his results, however, he was shocked to find out that he was just 3 percent Anglo-Saxon, with the rest of his genetic ancestry being from Western Europe, Ireland, and Scandinavia.
Commenting on the study, AncestryDNA spokesman Russell James said: “Despite the majority of residents assuming they were British through and through, this fascinating process uncovered some incredibly diverse heritage and allowed us to take a broader look at the genetic history of the village as a whole.
“It seems that Bledington‘s picturesque and arguably ‘typical England’ look and feel is deceiving as, on average, less than half of the villagers’ DNA (42 percent) was identified as Great British.”
^^^^These articles are yet more confirmation as to the information presented above in the links I provided in the last post and in the posts where I describe how Europe became a region mostly filled with black/brown skinned people to a region mostly filled with White people today. The confusing and muddled up genetic records in the article above me, can only be the result of the process through what I described in the black death posts above me!
Whites are not a singular race and don't have singular racial origins as implied by various others here. There is no "white race" as can be seen in a basic genetic chart of Europe, Eastern and Western Europe have completely different genetic haplogroups and were occupied and settled in different time periods, which implies different origins for different "white" ethnic groups. Also there are different language groups spoken in Europe such Indo-European to Finno-Uggric and Uralic to Vasconic which also undermines the idea of a "singular" white ethnic race or a "white identity".
THE BEST EXPLANATION OF THE TRUE ORIGINS OF MODERN WHITES IN EUROPE AND HOW THEY CAME TO BE, is the idea I have been hammering home countless goddamn times on ES, here and elsewhere. That modern White Europeans are the COMBINATION CROSS-BREEDING OF AFRICAN ALBINOS FROM AFRICA, whom settled Europe in ancient times following the settlement of Europe via early African migrants via the Gibralter straits from Spain; WITH INDIAN/SOUTH ASIAN ALBINOS FROM SOUTH ASIA AKA THE INDO-EUROPEANS (Indo=India), WHOM MASS MIGRATED TO EUROPE VIA ANATOLIA, CENTRAL ASIA AND SIBERIA! There were several large scale mass migrations of INDO-EUROPEAN and Turkic speaking whites from Central Asia and Siberia starting from the Neolithic to the start of the dark ages period. I made several threads on it explaining this repeatedly, I don't see how this is so hard for people to grasp!
The modern White European ethnic groups are the result of Black African albinos cross-breeding with Indian/South Asian albinos in the different regional quadrants of Europe across different time periods in differing percentages to create the said White Euro ethnic groups we know of today, and it's also the reason why the European countries today are so divided and criss-crossed in a strange unexplainable manner according to "ethnic boundaries'. The modern genetic reports and studies of the linguistics of Europe obviously prove this and confirm this idea, as well as the archeological and historical record.
Minus of course, Southern Europe and South-Eastern Europe and parts of Western Europe and Anatolia, which had recent genetic inflow from Africa and the Middle East and elsewhere that "darkened" the populations up somewhat or changed their genomic lineage recently!!
