Thornborough Henges and Celtic DNA

Genetic studies put the origins of the Celts in the Ice Age and they can be linked to ancient British Landscape

Genetic studies linking the Celts to the Basques push Celtic origins back to the Ice Age and to an original homeland on the Atlantic facade of Europe. Studies of palaeoclimatology and the reconstructions of palaeo-shorelines allow us to surmise what areas were habitable, and when. From this we can reconstruct some of the likely migrations as temperatures fluctuated. With rising sea levels they would have come to Britain and great Yorkshire henges at Thornborough and Ferrybridge are particularly eloquent, linking mesolithic remains to the Neolithic, Bronze and Iron Ages. British history did not begin with the Romans
