Summary, etc.:
Hidden inside all of us - every human being on Earth - is the story of our ancestry. Printed on our DNA are the origins of our lineages, the time in history and prehistory when then arose, the epic journeys people have made across the globe. Based on new research involving the most wide-ranging sampling of DNA ever made in Britain, Alistair Moffat, shows how all of us who live on these islands are immigrants. Publisher's marketing.
