Further break down of AncestryDNA Results

Further break down of AncestryDNA Results

What I would like to see is a further break down of the results. For example I have about 27% British Isles. But the deal with that is many different people populated this area. From the Picts, to the Romans, to the Germans, Saxons, etc. I understand that these results go back many MANY generations, but I also have 52% Scandinavian and 16% Southern European. Both of these groups have come and gone from to the British Isles. Basically I would like to see what does my British Isles, etc results really mean. Is it native DNA (ie welsh, picts, etc) or is it showing the general migration of my DNA (IE from Scandinavia to B.Isles, etc).

I took this to mean that my 48% Scandinavian was Viking immigration to the British Isles, my 41% British Isles was native to the islands, and my 11% Southern European was the Romans.
