Hey! The newspapers exagerate to get readership all the time. Actually, according to an article by Alice Baghdjian/ Reuters-Mon, Aug 1, 2011, half the men in Europe
and 70% of those in the British Isles have the same R1b1a2 haplogroup as does King Tut. If you can't wait, then use your favorite search engine and use the search
term Half of European men share King Tut's DNA.
A very high percentage of men in northern Ireland, not just that part in the UK called Northern Ireland have that DNA. This also true of western Scotland, Argyll and the islands off the west coast of Scotland, and the Isle of Man.
I needed to update the blog before it expired, besides, it gives us something to talk about.
