Preponderance of Celtic DNA in Britain
Correct me if I am mistaken but DNA tests throughout Britain have ascertained that 67% of the British population has DNA from their Celtic forebears. If this is true it points to the assumption that the Saxon incursions into Britain did not make such a physically genetic impact on the population even though the Saxon domination resulted in the eventual subjugation of the native British population. Thus, large numbers of "English" people living today have Celtic DNA and not Germanic apart from the fact of interbreeding across the centuries.
