Scots Are Descendants Of A Lost Race
MessageToEagle.com - DNA can be used as a telescope to look back into the past, and this is excatly what a group of scientists have done to cast more light on an ancient mystery.New ground-breaking study suggests that Scots are descendants of long lost tribes from the Sahara. In addition, the study also reveals that Scots are very closely related to Napoleon Bonaparte!The new study is based on research conducted by geneticist Dr Jim Wilson and his team at Edinburgh University. After testing DNA samples from almost 1,000 scots, researchers found that 1 per cent of all Scots are descended from the Berber and Tuareg tribesmen of the Sahara.One of the startling revelations, was the discovery of DNA linked to Napoleon Bonaparte. The research team discovered that Tom Conti, who took part in the project has a a family link to Napoleon Bonaparte, the French dictator. It was discovered that the actor's DNA marker is Saracen in origin and that his ancestors settled in Italy around the 10th century before one of them, Giovanni Buonaparte, settled in Corsica and founded the family line that sired Napoleon.
"Some friends said they weren't surprised to find out Napoleon and I were related, but it came as quite a shock to me. In fact, I didn't believe it at first," the actor said. The use of DNA allows scientists to use it as telescope to look back in time at where our ancestors once lived. it can be an amazing journey that can take you to a really surprising place. When Dr. Wilson discovered that some of the participants had DNA hailed from the Sahara, he had to double-check. "I didn't believe it at first and checked it twice. But more than one, in fact quite a few of our participants had this marker that is only found in and around the Sahara and among the blue men of the Tuareg.
[--Rather more likely is the probability that Scotland and the Saharans were linked to each other by the Megalithic culture that once stretched from Scotland to the Sahara and included the building of Stonehenge and other great stone monuments. Corsica and Sardinia were also known as areas where the culture had a stronghold. At one time, the Atlantic Bronze Age and a rather late phase of the Megalithic culture, the Atlantic seaboard from Britain to NW Africa was controlled by the city located at Tartessos, in the Iberian peninsula-DD]
