Guanches

Diana, Dienekes has a post about Guanches. They probably are "Berbers"....

Amazigh to you, baby!

Right on!

This shows that, despite the continuous changes suffered by the population (Spanish colonisation, slave trade), aboriginal mtDNA lineages constitute a considerable proportion of the Canarian gene pool.

This is the story I deduced from reading a lot of websites, but it was difficult to tell whether this was just old-wives tales or the real thing.

Now it seems as though the ethnic cleansing wasn't as complete as has been reported. Very interesting!!
