Wild claim: One in five Scots has blood tie to ancient Iraq

#1
Nobody say anything! Thread locked, etc

Another story below from today's Scotsman.

ISTR that there is a theory that Croats and other assorted South Slavs also came 'originally' from the Middle East (well, we all came from Africa to start with, didnt we?): might explain that wild-eyed look some of us have in common with your average ethnic cleanser. :wink:

The bit about some of our ancestors arriving from England is more worrying, though. :lol:

One in five Scots has blood tie to ancient Iraq

SHARON WARD

ABOUT 20 per cent of all Scots have Iraqi blood, according to a new book and television series examining the pre-history of what is now Scotland.

The remaining four in five Scots are descended from bands of hunter-gatherers who came from England and northern Europe after the Ice Age - dispelling the myth of the Scots as a mongrel race made up of Romans, Angles, Vikings, Normans and other arrivals.

These revelations come from a documentary series Before Scotland: The Story of Scotland Before History, to be screened later this year on STV and Grampian....
tough on those of us who dont get STV or Grampian!

Actually I read somewhere that the DNA of our longer-resident people, well you know what I mean, was pretty much the same up and down the coasts of our Sceptred Isle, which makes some racial fantasies look pretty stupid.

I have never owned a slave and could'nt give a sh1t if any of my ancestors did.
And I am 100% certain that none of my ancestors sold fellow tribal members into slavery.
Glad that rants over as the board was looking quite ta day.
