One of the world leading geneticist, Bryan Sykes, has helped thousands find their ancestry in the British Isles. ‘Saxons, Vikings, and Celts’ which resulted from a systematic ten year DNA survey of more than 10,000 volunteers, traces the true genetic makeup of the British Isles and its descendants, taking readers from the Pontnewydd Cave in North Wales to the resting place of the Red Lady of Paviland and the tomb of King Arthur.

This illuminating guide provides a much-needed introduction to the genetic history of the people of the British Isles and their descendants throughout the world.
