Hinxton DNA

The authors had sequenced whole genome of 5 ancient DNA samples from skeletons excavated from Hinxton, Cambridgeshire, UK with estimated dates from the iron age through the Roman period (2500-1800 years ago). I converted these raw data of samples into formats familiar to genetic genealogists. I also filtered with SNPs tested by DNA testing companies like FTDNA, 23andMe and Ancestry in order to upload to GEDMatch but found some ancient DNA has less SNPs that are common with them. Hence, I did not upload those but the rest, I did upload to GEDMatch. Please note that the complete download is merged from several sequence runs and may not be sorted by coordinates.
