Thanks for looking into this David. My point is that it is indeed regional, and that there are similarities between Northern Spain and Ulster and Lowland Scotland that is not found elsewhere. As usual, much more data needs to be available before there is anything that we could sink our teeth into. Still, we have to find some stucture in R1b. We know it is there with SNPs in Iberia. If they are found in Britain it suggests an early origin for these SNPs, but if not, then likely they emerged in Iberia in the last few thousand years. R1b can drive an obsessive sort like me to distraction - perhaps I should return to the safer realms of R1a in Shetland.
