    Frisians apparently originated from an area around southern Sweden and
    Denmark and migrated southwards, possibly as far as Bennekom (sp?) in the
    Netherlands. Frisians may have settled in Kent (UK). There certainly are
    linguistic links with some of the Scandinavian languages.

    The Irish and Scots are most definitely related. The Scots invaded Scotland
    from Ireland around 4-500 AD and finally defeated the Picts, who were the
    original inhabitants somewhere around 800. Originally, the Scots fought for
    the Picts.

    But more broadly, as I noted, the neanderthal traits, amng them red-heads
    apparently, are spread throughout the entire range of the N.'s. This
    includes western Russia across through England and as far south as the
    Levant (King DAvid was a redhead apparently)
