Is distinctive DNA marker proof of ancient genocide?
A controversial theory holds invaders from Iberia may have massacred much of Ireland’s male population.
In this episode I host John Holden who had written an article published by The Irish Times involving the possibility of the Celts exterminating the original male inhabitants of ancient Ireland, what DNA studies are telling us and the argument on both sides of this complex issue.
This is the first episode of a long series that I would like to do involving news, history and archaeology and even though this is no longer "news" I thought this would be an interesting place to start.
