About us

Hampshire (also known as Southampton before 1800) is dotted with ancient burial mounds. A large county in southern England which borders on the English Channel with its great ports of Southampton and Portsmouth; it also sweeps inland with gentle rolling hills towards the great cities of Andover and Basingstoke just an hour from London. The intent of this project is to establish a database of the varied y DNA which is found in Hampshire and to understand the genetic history of this county which is mentioned very often in the Domesday Book.
