The nature and distribution of political power in Europe during the Neolithic era remains poorly understood. During this period, many societies began to invest heavily in building monuments, which suggests an increase in social organization. The scale and sophistication of megalithic architecture along the Atlantic seaboard, culminating in the great passage tomb complexes, is particularly impressive.
We sampled 44 whole genomes, among which we identify the adult son of a first-degree incestuous union from remains that were discovered within the most elaborate recess of the Newgrange passage tomb. Socially sanctioned matings of this nature are very rare, and are documented almost exclusively among politico-religious elites—specifically within polygynous and patrilineal royal families that are headed by god-kings.
We identify relatives of this individual within two other major complexes of passage tombs 150 km to the west of Newgrange, as well as dietary differences and fine-scale haplotypic structure (which is unprecedented in resolution for a prehistoric population) between passage tomb samples and the larger dataset, which together imply hierarchy.
This elite emerged against a backdrop of rapid maritime colonization that displaced a unique Mesolithic isolate population, although we also detected rare Irish hunter-gatherer introgression within the Neolithic population.
Ireland: Land of the Pharaohs
My full classic interview with Andrew Power which
seeded huge online interest in his stunning book
and this interview. Interest which persists today.
Here's the full interview with Andrew Power
and his buddy Irvine James:

Finally, here's Ged Skeptic reading Andrew's book.
He did a dozen videos on his channel
A book that was forwarded to me by a kind subscriber and written by Andrew Power. It explores the origins of Ireland and it's connections with ancient Egypt, speculates that the Battle of the Boyne was not a battle but in fact an ancient ritual. If you are into the lost tribes and the Celtic connection, i think this book could be right down your street.
I'm also going to extend this topic to more detailed examination of the Egyptian structures
- and especially the impossible artefacts - as explored on the Uncharted X channel.
This also intersects with the work of Randall Carlson on the meteor strike 11k BC
which wiped out the last civilization.
