Any thoughts on the paper that appeared in Nature on the People of the British Isles (http://www.peopleofthebritishisles.org/) posted by Dienekes'? I haven't read the paper myself. Some people say it's a victory for Stephen Oppenheimer. I've read Origin's of the British and couldn't digest it, especially because of his denial of linguistic studies. I feel that two schools of thought between migrationist and anti-migrationist are in full struggle, with all of us caught in the middle.
