I think the Etruscans were what many scholars, including Piazza and Cavalli-Sforza, too, stated: the fusion of a greco-anatolian èlite with the native population of ancient Tuscany (a "sardinian-like" post-neolithic population? Italics? Something else?). After the Cuma battle of 474 BC, the Etruscans were estimated to be 300,000/400,000 people, the 12-16% of the whole population of Italy.
I have a question: The study states the admixture event between locals and an anatolian-caucasian population could have occured about 2,600-3,100 years ago. Is there anything out there - a genetic research company, a software or whatever... - allowing us to estimate this kind of temporal range for individuals, too?
