The DNA of the Basque people is very similar to that of the British. British people and Basque people also look very similar see youtube: faces of Basque people

well tbh in British History we have been conquered a few times

Off the top of my head, by Vikings, also Romans.................so yeah, a good amount of "British" people are likely to have their origins somewhere else.

Pretty interesting. Theres this growing trend of people assuming all white people are the same and are some kind of evil race who just slaughtered every other group of people... realistically every country went to war with eachother regardless of race, ethnicity .etc theres blood on everyones hands

No invasion has contributed more than 5% to the genetic mix because their numbers weren't large enough in comparison to the British population at the time.

The Romans consisted of 10 000 soldiers.

Yes, the Basques are mostly of the r1b haplogroup, and the other highest concentrations of r1b are found in Northern Iberia, Western France, Ireland and Britain (especially Wales and Western England). R1b could effectively be called the "Celtic" haplogroup, though interestingly, the Basque language is thought to be much, much older and unrelated to the Celtic languages, in fact it is seeminly unrelated to any of the Indo-European languages.

The uniqueness of the Basque language led to the belief that they were most likely to be related to Mesolithic hunter-gatherer populations. Recent research shows that genetically they have greater similarity to Neolithic farmers than other European groups who were tradtionally thought to be more directly descended from these agriculturalists.

In relation to 'invasions' of these islands, following the arrival of Beaker culture from the Lower Rhine area from around c. 2500 BC there was a > 90% replacement of the 'indigenous' Neolithic DNA between the Late Neolithic and Middle Bronze Age. The Beaker people were genetically most closely linked to the Yamnaya pastoralists who migrated into western Europe from the Eurasian steppe; they are the likely source of the R1b haplogroup. This appears to have been the last large-scale genetic change in Britain as no evidence has been found for the once-theorized Iron Age migration.
