By Bryan Sykes  – “However we may feel about ourselves and about each other, we are geneticallyracial identity rooted in a Celtic past. The Irish, the Welsh, and the Scots know this, but the English sometimes think otherwise.

But, just a little way beneath the surface, the strands of ancestry weave us all together as the children of a common past. . . . It is our own genetic ancestry that is the most important. It is the thread that goes back to our own deep roots that means the most”.

And not just for the people of the Isles, for the cousins of the nine clans of Europe are one intertwined people, with rich common strands of ancestry that are 45,000 years deep, that include the children’s hand prints on the walls of Rouffignac Cave in southern France some 30,000 years ago and the footsteps on the Moon, and a common future in Europe and its daughter lands, together, if we are to have any future at all.”
