Data is not understood in a vacuum, so the author first enchants the listener with the history and myths of the people of Great Britain and relates that to what his DNA analysis tells him. The story comes alive when he explains the history and myth of the British, and he writes better than almost anyone on those topics.
The author steps you through past attempts at understanding the genetics of the British and how DNA can be used to help deconvolve the problem.
He never lets the science or the data get in the way of telling a good narrative and at times the book was like listening to a beautiful song.

What made the experience of listening to Saxons, Vikings, and Celts the most enjoyable?
The story was easy to follow even if it was some what technical at time but the author made the best of the situation.
What did you like best about this story?
The out come of the story was the best part because it wasn't what I was expecting.
Which scene was your favorite?
My Favorite scene was the part where the author asked a man for a DNA sample and he says , "You don't want me for your study. I'm not form around here". So the author ask him where he was from and the man tells him and the autor has to ask the man where that is and it turns out to be like ten miles down the road.
