Would it be fair to say that the fairhaired Celts of today have already
been genetically confused beyond recognition? For every fairhaired
Irish or Scottish person I know, there is a smaller, darker, Pictish
looking person. Has it been decided if Picts are actually of Celtic
origin? I know I have read speculation along these lines, but do not
know if that theory is accepted.
