Anyone remember this - from fifty-odd years ago?

 

"British, British! Undiluted for twelve generations - 100% Anglo-Saxon with perhaps just a dash of Viking...."

Tony Hancock, The Blood Donor.

 

A classic of British television comedy - available on YouTube.

The article didn't even mention the town's Morris tradition.

The DNA reports in the UK seem to give more specific data than what my sister obtained here in the USA.  Hers reported 62% Western Europe which is pretty broad.  Genealogically we're German with a little Swiss, going back into early 1600s and late 1500s.  I didn't feel the report gave her / us much information.  I would have been happier if it had specified which countries in Western Europe.
