Subject: RE: BS: Who are the Welsh?
Whatever, current thinking these days, based on the old DNA, is that the Neanderthalers never made it through into the current gene pool.

I hope someday they find that's a mistake. Aside from everything else, earliest evidence of musicians has them as Neanderthal - See here. And the pictures of them in the books tend to look very familar from the folk scene.
