I have not followed all of your discussion on this, but I just counted the
23/11/13/13 (DYS 390,391,392,393)and the 24/11/13/13 in the South West
England section of Sykes Blood of the Isles data. I get 41 at 23/11/13/13
and 49 at 24/11/13/13 out of a total of 238. Making 17.2% and 20.6%

Regarding your theory of the Vikings.
Do you not like Stephen Oppenheimer's theory that they came a few thousand
years earlier, after the ice. ?

Last weekend I noted that based on Bryan
Sykes "Blood of the Isles" data southwest
England bettered Denmark and the Netherlands
in terms of 23/11/13/13 (DYS 390,391,392,393)
as a percentage of those sampled. Ken suggested
that it would not hold up as a percentage of
24/11/13/13. I thought I'd check on this and
can report that it does. South West England
returns 42/51 (82.35%).

Anyone want to have some theories for this.
Based on what I know I can't help but think
it relates to the period around 1200 BC
when the archaelogical records suggests
an invasion in southwest England/Wessex
area. I would think Viking but this does
not hold up in other northern parts of the
British Isles one would expect strong
23/11/13/13 due to Vikings.

Best wishes!
