I demand genetic testing.
This is just way out there. Are we certain that this is not just an Inuit?
DNA testing is all the rage, I’m just not inuit. [tiny rimshot]
The “genetic flaw in the neck” mentioned in the article was the basis for the claim. I have no idea what that is.
Blam’s DNA swab test thingee showed a haplotype more or less isolated and commonplace among the Lapps.
BTW, Inuit would probably have had a harder time getting to that part of Norway than the Inca. However, in the Little Ice Age (which occurred several centuries later) Inuit did show up in London.
What does your Inuition tell you?
BTW, the area in this story is not far from the Norwegian-Swedish border along the coast, which is where my family, the Henrikssons, are from (just on the Swedish side).
