Is there a website/ whatever that will define where each subclade of R1b

I have found ... a website that talked about some of the clades ...

Haplogroup R1b originated prior to or during the last glaciation, when it
was concentrated in refugia in southern Europe and the Aegean. It is the
most common haplogroup in Western Europe, but has been found at low
frequency as far away as Iran and Korea. In southern England the frequency
of R1b is about 70%; in parts of Spain, Portugal, Wales and Ireland, it is
as high as 90%; and in parts of north-western Ireland it reaches 98%. The
R1b clade appears to have a much higher degree of internal diversity than
R1a, which suggests that the M343 mutation that derives R1b from R1* may
have occurred considerably earlier than the SRY1532 mutation that defines

But where do I find more??

And do any of you know the most common haplogroup for a Norman? or the
Danes? most common subclade for the Scots?

What is on line that I ccan read about R1b and its clades??

Thank you
