    BBC's Gladiators: Back from the Dead aka some of the headless Roman gladiators!



    Didn't see the documentary on the possible Gladiators from Eboracum (York, England) listed here! Did you guys see it!?! (Sorry in advance if it was though before!). I am very interested in these guys as I matched two skeletons from this same cemetery - Driffield Terrace in York. I matched 3drif-16 and 6drif-3 on the Y-chromosome (6drif-3 was closer to me SNP marker wise - but this also means that both 3drif-16 and 6drif-3 are related on the Y-Chromosome and that means maybe they came from the same tribe/collection of tribes??)! The list of SNPs I share with 6drif-3 are as follows: R1b-U106-Z381-Z156-Z304/306-DF98-S1911-S1894/S1900-S4004/FGC14818/FGC14823-FGC14816/FGC14817! Here is the first bit of the film... I can't find it anymore on youtube :-(. You can find part 2 and 3 listed on the right of the screen etc! Actually the "heavyweight" skeleton is 6drif-3 (I matched them up per size of skeleton and sharp blade trauma and also butterfly fracture on right ulna!) . I hope they test more of them in the future. I hear Blink films is working with Durham Uni to produce an episode for Smithsonian Channel series Secrets that discuss the 2016 DNA results of some of these gladiators - including both 3drif-16 and 6drif-3. Not sure when it will be out though! http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xds...1-3_shortfilms
