Dear Marianne,
There has been a lot of discussion on this list in the past about
Oppenheimer's book. The discussion begins in October 2006. I suggest that
you go back to the archives at and read all of the
previous comments about this book beginning in October 2006. I personally
think that there are a lot of good things about his book. However, many of
us on this list believe that he tried to draw too many conclusions from the
limited Y STR data that he had. I think he would have been better off if he
had done Y SNP testing on his samples and tested many more Y STR markers,
rather than relying on a limited number of Y STR markers.

I ordered " The Origins of the British" by Steve Oppenheimer yesterday. I
won't get my copy for a week. I was wondering how good it is rated compared
to others works. The books I have read are Sykes books and Ann ans Megan's
book and one by Colleen Fitzpatrick. I am interested in population,
countries and migration patterns. I don't know if this book will help me
with mtDNA or not.
