Feeling a Mite Pictish?

A geneticist at Ethnoancestry has developed a test for "Scottishness"—that is, "Pictishness."

Dr Jim Wilson, of Edinburgh University’s public health sciences department, claims his test can tell whether people are descended from the Picts, who inhabited Scotland until the 10th century.

The test, which is based on the DNA pattern of Scotland’s ancient inhabitants, is due to be launched this week and is expected to cost about £130. [Link]
