DNA research article on Scotland's R1a1 Highland Clansmen DNA Genealogy and the search for Somerled
By Andrew Mceachern and Anatole Klyosov


Whilst there is much to do about Somerled being Norse and Professor Bryan Sykes "research" work, this is simply not true.

Clan Donald carry an SNP, which is L176.1. SNP's are mutations that we get from our deep ancestors, they do not change their values.

The Norse DNA that Sykes makes reference to DOES not carry this SNP, therefore Clan Donald did not get their ancestry from the Norse. Its this simple. For your reference I am also attaching the research work that Sykes produced, as immature as it is.

Kind Regards

Andrew
