Ancestry research and DNA Testing in Plymouth

The earliest known settlement on the area now occupied by Plymouth is at Mount Batten. It dates from the late Bronze Age, and was later an Iron Age trading port. It is thought that tin was brought here from Dartmoor via the Plym and traded with the Phoenicians. As part of the Roman Empire this port continued to trade tin along with cattle and hides. In 1403, the town was briefly occupied and burnt by the French, especially the Bretons. The town was often the target of enemies across the English Channel, especially during the Hundred Years’ War.
