Alistair Moffatt was interviewed on the Today programme this morning. He is part of an international survey on our ‘deep ancestry’, and claims that our DNA can show where everybody came from.
‘Everyone in Britain is an immigrant … the only issue is, when did you arrive?’ he said.
Their discoveries are ‘beginning to make the Bible come alive’.
It appears we all descend from 2 common ancestors – one male, the other female. Apparently they didn’t meet … but at some point they must have, thinks I … or we wouldn’t be here :crazy:
Fascinating to discover that the Jewish name Cohen has a very pure ancestry and can trace its line back to the Aaron of the Old Testament who was Moses’ brother and the first High Priest. People have also been traced to the Queen of Sheba.
If you go to http://www.britainsdna.com/ you can read more, and even take part if you have the spare cash!
All very intriguing.
Thanks to Arose-amongst-thorns for drawing my attention to this. :wave:
