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?

It was quite logical seeing as the same happened in France.

They do?

I'd hope not. It annoys me to no end when people get all "muh hurritage" about genetics, when identity is much more about culture and inheriting the worldviews, rather than the genetics, of various groups in the past. Whatever their genetics, the English Anglo-Saxon culture was more based on continental Germanic traditions than Celtic ones, and that's whats important.

Only 30% of britbong DNA can be traced to Germanic groups

That's quite a lot.

>>538624
That still makes them 70% Saxon.
Not to mention most of Western Europe is >10% Germanic anyway.

>70% Saxon
70% Celtic rather.

In that article is says genetically "Celtic" isn't a thing, with all the Celtic people in Britain being the most different from each other.

Typical attempt at cultural genocide by a Brit newspaper

Nobody said Celtic culture wasn't a thing, senpai.
