ONE million Britons can claim direct descent from vikings, a DNA study claimed yesterday.

The genetic study, commissioned to celebrate the season two premiere of hit U.S. TV show VIKINGS on the Amazon Prime Instant Video streaming service and carried out by BritainsDNA, compared gene markers passed from dad to son, from 3500 men to six Norse DNA patterns.

Men from the Shetland (29.2 per cent) and Orkney (25.2 per cent) Islands, heavily populated by the Northmen in the Viking Age, are most likely to have Viking in their bloodlines according to the research.

These two locations top the list of places in Britain and Ireland where the most Norse blood remains, while parts of England have as many as one in twenty direct male descendants.

Other areas of Scotland also feature prominently in the list, with Caithness (17.5 per cent), Isle of Man (12.3 per cent), the Western Isles (11.3 percent) and North West Scotland and the Inner Hebrides (9.9 per cent).
