DNA shows Irish people have more complex origins than previously thought -- Sott.net

The blood in Irish veins is Celtic, right? Well, not exactly. Although the history many Irish people were taught at school is the history of the Irish as a Celtic race, the truth is much more complicated, and much more interesting than that ......

For a long time the myth of Irish history has been that the Irish are Celts. The latest research into Irish DNA has confirmed that the early inhabitants of Ireland were not directly descended from the Celts/Keltoi of central Europe. In fact the closest genetic relatives of the Irish in Europe are to be found in the north of Spain in the region known as the Basque Country. These same ancestors are shared to an extent with the people of Britain - especially the Scottish.

The Ups and Downs of Neanderthal DNA

Recent analysis of modern human and Neanderthal DNA has identified nine Neanderthal genes that are present in living humans, and which are are known to raise or reduce the risk of various diseases, including diabetes, lupus, liver cirrhosis, and Crohn's disease. Neanderthal DNA also appears to be important in hair and skin development. Related Link: ** Darwin Drives a Hybrid Animal .

Modern Humans Wandered Out of Africa via Arabia

Modern humans migrated out of Africa via a southern route through Arabia, rather than a northern route by way of Egypt, according to research announced at a conference at the National Geographic Society this week. "Evolutionary history shows that human populations likely originated in Africa, and

Western Europe circa 10,000 BC at the very end of the Ice Age. Ireland had already split from Britain (when it was still a barren post-glacial tundra, hence no snakes!) but Britain was still linked to continental Europe until about 6500 BC as sea levels continued to creep upward.

The age of Neanderthal bones and artefacts discovered in a Greek cave suggests that the area was a key crossroads for Neanderthals and anatomically modern humans, according to researchers. The DNA of today’s Europeans and Asians shows that Neanderthals occasionally interbred with modern humans, and the find coincides with the discovery of what is believed to be a Neanderthal-modern human hybrid who lived in Italy around 35,000 years ago.

A recently-uncovered Neanderthal burial site in Spain has provided intriguing evidence that these ancient hominids believed in an afterlife and were capable of complex symbolic thought, all possibly before early Homo sapiens demonstrated these abilities.

Ancient DNA research has revealed genetic links between modern humans and our extinct ancestors, including Neanderthals and the mysterious Denisovans.
