Criticism section[edit]

I've restored the last version, minus the Megaw quote which was both too long and WP:UNDUE - an attack on Collis without any balance or explanation of what Collis wrote. I'm not saying it's perfect, but such a section belongs in the article. Dougweller (talk) 19:15, 16 January 2013 (UTC)

Celtic DNA does not exist because it was a Culture not a group of peoples.[edit]

Good day all, Please forgive me but I like to list some facts. Celtic dna does not exist because it is a Culture from the Iron age. And there where many cultures before the Celtic culture. History gets rewritten all the time and continues to be updated. So read more and learn about the Celtic culture not Celtic peoples. One different theory from the British Isles DNA project shows a majority of Ireland, Scotland, England peoples came from Iberian peninsula. I do not know if it is correct?.— Preceding unsigned comment added by 110.32.232.235 (talk) 10:30, 9 February 2013 (UTC)

Please see Rob's contribution below.Jembana (talk) 23:26, 22 November 2013 (UTC)
Also DNA ancestry testing is quite common now and so it forms part of the mix in what people identify themselves as. Some like myself couldn't care about this aspect but others do so we should accommodate such considerations (DNA ancestry for me is interesting only to help unravel some of the remaining origin mysteries as has been done successfully with the Polynesians, but the Celts remain problematic but with some pieces falling into place in the past few years).Jembana (talk) 23:39, 22 November 2013 (UTC)
Maybe add part to the article expressing that the modern identity 'Celtic' is based on a learned/invading language and not blood, like as if all Scots, Welsh and Irish should take on the 'English' identity as they speak that language now. Shappin Trally (talk) 08:43, 14 January 2014 (UTC)

England, Celtic?[edit]

See [1]. Not sure if this is significant, but I though it might be. Regards, Rob (talk) 20:07, 29 August 2013 (UTC)

Why not add a precis to the Ancestry section on this page ? A number of other recent studies agree with the one you have pointed to so it is not unsupported.Jembana (talk) 23:24, 22 November 2013 (UTC)
