The research confirmed that the Vikings did not just raid and retreat to Scandinavia, but settled in Britain for years. They left their genetic pattern in some parts of the UK population. Concentrations of Norwegian genetic heritage were found in part of Cumbria in northwest England, the area around Penrith, the Shetland and Orkney Islands and the far north of the Scottish mainland. In addition the research revealed surprising new information about Celtic and Anglo-Saxon heritage on the British mainland. Men who were tested in mainland Scotland had a percentage of Celtic genetic heritage similar to the population of southern England. This showed that Celtic heritage persisted among men in southern England after Anglo-Saxon settlement; and that the Scots were not predominantly Celtic. The series included clips from Richard Fleischer’s 1958 film The Vikings starring Kirk Douglas to illustrate common modern attitudes towards the Vikings.
