[QUOTE=spruithean;448618]It's doubtful that your autosomal results trace back to Viking times. That is quite far back and it is doubtful we share any autosomal DNA with ancestors from that period of time.

Thanks, yes it does seem improbable, but that would be an explanation of how so many ancestors in this region (Sognefjord) inherited BI DNA. I just can't figure out any other historical explanation for Irish/Scottish/English markers in these people since they were so isolated. If they all descended from British Isle slaves, they would share that DNA.
