Launched in April 2012, BritainsDNA has research at its roots. Born from an innovative project bringing together historical analysis and genetic information from ancestral DNA testing, BritainsDNA aims to provide new insights into the genetic origins of the British and those of British descent. For example, progressive steps have been made in discovering the tremendous diversity of our DNA, from the farthest reaches of Siberia, Africa and Indonesia, to the legacy of the Romans, Anglo-Saxons, Vikings and Danes, and further refining haplogroups into defined subtypes. By taking a test you not only begin your own DNA journey, but you also play a valuable role in research into the genetic makeup and origins of a nation. With your help we can at last write a people's history of Britain.
