For a long time the myth of Irish history has been that the Irish are Celts. The latest research into Irish DNA has confirmed that the early inhabitants of Ireland were not directly descended from the Celts/Keltoi of central Europe. In fact the closest genetic relatives of the Irish in Europe are to be found in the north of Spain in the region known as the Basque Country. These same ancestors are shared to an extent with the people of Britain - especially the Scottish.

Viking men were also heavily tattooed but their most striking and fearsome fashion statement was their gnashers. They would file horizontal lines into the enamel on their front teeth and paint in red resin. Gareth says: “That’s like your punk sticking a safety pin through his nose. It would have been very uncomfortable and it’s quite deliberately saying ‘If I’m prepared to do this to myself, what am I going to do to you?’.”

Almost one million Britons alive today are of Viking descent, despite the Norse warriors’ British rule ending more than 900 years ago. A study compared Y chromosome markers to estimated Viking DNA patterns. The Viking DNA patterns are rarely found outside Scandinavia. Men from the far north of Scotland were most likely to provide a direct match with almost a third (29.2%) of the men from the Shetland Islands testing positive for Viking blood.

Pessaries (300s BC - 1900s) A pessary is a vaginal suppository used to kill sperm and/or block their passage through the cervix. It's one of the oldest contraceptive devices, having been used for over 3,000 years in various cultures. Ancient pessaries were often made from animal feces (crocodile in Egypt, elephant in India), along with a honey, ground up fruit and bark. Once inserted, the pessary would melt at body temperature and form an impenetrable covering on the cervix.

Stone of Scone (pronounced scon, rhymes with Ron). Starting with Robert the Bruce, Scotland's kings have sat on this stone to be crowned. The English stole it 700 years ago and kept it under their coronation chair, but with Scotland's parliamentary independence in the 1990s, the Scots asked for it back and got it! It is honorably displayed with Scotland's crown jewels. (Scotland doesn't have the impressive gems that England has, but it is elegant!) Edinburgh Castle
