Scottish man could be 'grandson' of Eve7/2/2012
Ian Kinnaird is a retired 72-year-old lecturer from Scotland. Even he admits he's led an 'unremarkable life.' That is, until scientists from the Britain's DNA project recently informed him that a genetic marker inherited from his mother made him "the grandfather of everyone in Britain." The scientists told Kinnaird that the mitochondrial DNA from his mother's lineage was 30,000 years old, and just two genetic mutations removed from the first woman — Eve. Yes, that Eve. The project has tested 2,000 Britons thus far with the aim of mapping the U.K.'s "family tree."
Do you find this finding remarkable?
