>I entirely agree with Dienekes.
...In the Northern Isles and in probably most of the UK and certainly Ireland,
R1a1 is associated specifically with the Vikings.
In my Shetland Islands database almost all...have reasonably close genetic
matches in Norway, and occasionally Sweden, but nowhere else except the UK
- and more distantly the Altai. ...if you are R1a1, are from the
UK, then there is a very high probability that your ancestors were among the
Viking raiders of the 8th and 9th centuries or a migrant from a later date
(to 1066 AD).

My comment:

Amazing.

In this case we should all agree that the Vikings descended everywhere in the world,
including Saudi Arabia, India, Lebanon, and everywhere in Europe, in the 8th and 9th centuries.

Do you realize that the ancestral R1a1 haplotypes are practically the same in all of those places?
Including England, Norway, Sweden, Russia, India, and all the above?

Examples, base (ancestral) haplotypes, all around 4,000-5,000 years old:

After it, read again your writings:
