Perhaps They Were Running From Bulls

A team from Oxford University has established that Britain's indigenous people, the Celts, were from Spain.

Professor [Bryan] Sykes, who is soon to publish the first DNA map of the British Isles, said: "About 6,000 years ago Iberians developed ocean-going boats that enabled them to push up the Channel. Before they arrived, there were some human inhabitants of Britain but only a few thousand in number. These people were later subsumed into a larger Celtic tribe... The majority of people in the British Isles are actually descended from the Spanish." [Link]
Further, historians have concluded that the Spanish Armada was not an invasion fleet, but a family reunion cruise with a poorly planned itinerary.
