Fun Stuff! European Genetic Map

The above map, from the deliciously named website strange maps, shows the genetic overlap of European populations. One of the hypotheses concerning the findings is that the English (and Irish) population still consists of the desecendents of the original pre-Celtic, pre-Danish, and pre-Norman invasions. Being mostly English, myself, I find this oddly comforting.
