DNA and the Vikings

January 9 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

At one time the Wirral was a mini-state with its own language – the old Viking language called Old Norse.  Eleven hundred years ago when the Viking settlers arrived in the Wirral they would have seen cranes on a sandbank.  “Tran” is their word for a crane and “mere” is a sandbank – hence Tranmere.  Were your ancestors really Vikings?  Professor Stephen Harding, Professor of Applied Biology at the University of Nottingham, will reveal the DNA connecting us with the past.
