Icelandic Vikings like ancient Scandinavians and English Vikings

Recently available data of Icelandic Viking Age samples (study Ancient genomes from Iceland reveal the making of a human population) resemble pretty much Iron Age Scandinavians and also Vikings from UK published in the study

Comparing Ancient DNA Preservation in Petrous Bone and Tooth Cementum.

Unfortunately this study gives very little idea of the origin of those UK Vikings, but if they were any kind of a mixture of Scandinavians and Britons/Anglo Saxons they could have given something  Icelanders, because British-Scandinavian mixture of Icelanders have been assumed in many studies.  Another question is if Vikings in UK and Iceland represented same Scandinavian migrations, which can be true.  Here is a qpAdm result shoving similarity between these two Viking groups.
