How will the rise of modern genetics affect people's identity?
An example is England. The English have historically considered themselves to be anglo-saxons, contrasting themselves with the surrounding celtic peoples. However, modern genetic studies show that the English are almost entirely celtic by genetics.
It turns out that the anglo-saxons for them most part assimilated the celts, rather than displace them.
Will information like this change people's self-perception of identity?
