Above is a reconstruction of the R1a1-bearing warrior from Bronze age Rogali, Poland(Southeast corner of Poland) with his equipment. He may be an ancestor of Balto-Slavs. He is reported as R1a1 based on his Y-STR profile and being positive for Y-SNP R1a1-SRY 1532.2 and negative for IJ and N1c1 Y SNPs.

In the future researchers plan on testing the coding region of the mtDNAs(they already tested HV1+2) to further define their haplogroup status, find which R1a1 subclade the warrior belonged to, and test SNPs associated with pigmentation.

The previous report that the warrior was "dark complected" was purely based on a high amount of mtDNA H in these Bronze age Poles, no pigmentation SNPs were tested. Pigmentation SNPs tested in R1-bearing Germans from several hundred years before this Polish man though do suggest Central-East Euros back then were significantly darker than their modern descendants(see here (https://drive.google.com/open?id=1PVpN5zC3vW-FC_IUzFMaf6JI2XezGooJgsoIRagKyy8&authuser=0)).

mtDNA was taken from his site and I think others near him. I added the results to this spreadsheet of Ancient European mtDNA(linked below).

Davidski posted an article about it(see here (http://polishgenes.blogspot.com/2015/05/r1a1a-from-early-bronze-age-warrior.html)) and says Polish archaeologist think the culture(Strzyżow) this R1a1-bearing warrior came from was a mix of non-IE locals and IE-speakers from the steppe.

A well-preserved tomb of a warrior with weapons of the early Bronze Age , ie before the almost 4 thousand . years old , was discovered in Rogalin ( Lublin ) . In the same place archaeologists previously dug up the grave of the princess with rich ornaments. At the cemetery in Rogalin near Hrubieszów , near the Polish -Ukrainian border , was discovered during ongoing for four years of archaeological research 11 tombs from the early Bronze Age. Most of them were richly equipped with bronze ornaments and utensils - as three graves discovered in August of this year. Among them is the tomb of a warrior.

Hyrchała announced that the skeleton is subjected to anthropological studies that explain what the growth was a man , whether and on what was ill , perhaps even - as he died . The plan is to reconstruct the appearance of his face , as well as preserved skull.


The tomb of the warrior - as reported by archaeologist - found 15 flint arrowheads and flint spear . It had to be filed - Hyrchała suspects - including a wooden arch that has been degraded , like wooden items javelin and shot . The tomb also found flint sickle to cut grain, a pin with a hole - apparently used to fasten the jacket , bony plates - which could serve as a belt buckle.

This year, archaeologists have discovered the graves of the cemetery also two boys [ in fact these people sex is not known, there has been here for journalistic distortion - HR ] , one of which was about 10 years old, the other was a few years older . Found at these decorative pendants shell cockles , mussels or genre , and copper , faience beads and distinctive dishes - decorated with imprints of the rope and chropowacone , or rub before burning bundle of grass.

Hyrchała said that a year ago was discovered in the same position grave princess. - We named it so because of the extremely large number of rich ornaments, including copper , very valuable in the Bronze Age - she explained. Among them was the earrings of copper sheet metal and wire , worn on the head, on the band and headband . Found here also 80 beads and a few hangers with cockles , which could create a necklace . The skeleton in the grave is preserved in bad condition , it consisted only of a skull and a few vertebrae.

Monuments from the tomb of Princess have already undergone maintenance and will in future be displayed in the permanent exhibition archaeological museum in Hrubieszow , like other monuments of Rogalin . The cemetery in Rogalin strzyżowski belongs to the culture that developed between 2000 and the year 1600 BC. Its name comes from the name of the village in the district Hrubieszów , Strzyżowa , where in the 50s of the twentieth century the settlement from this period. It included the area of ​​today's Volyn in the Ukraine and eastern Lublin region.

People of culture strzyżowski assumed deposits primarily in the valley of the River Bug, dealt with agriculture and animal husbandry . Cemeteries were created on hills and slopes .

Reconstruction below:

http://polishgenes.blogspot.co.uk/2015/05/r1a1a-from-early-bronze-age-warrior.html?m=0


Ancient DNA tests on a skeleton from an Early Bronze Age warrior grave near Hrubieszow, southeastern Poland, have revealed that the remains belong to Y-haplogroup R1a1a [source (http://www.anthrogenica.com/showthread.php?3732-Reconstruction-and-possibly-a-genetic-analysis-in-the-future-of-4-000YBP-Pole&p=82547&viewfull=1#post82547)].

Mitochondrial sequences were also obtained from seven other samples from the same burial site, and assigned to mt-haplogroups H1a, H1b (two), H2a (two), H6 and U5b1.

R1a1a is by far the most frequent Y-haplogroup in Poland today (...)

http://www.anthrogenica.com/showthread.php?3732-Reconstruction-and-possibly-a-genetic-analysis-in-the-future-of-4-000YBP-Pole&p=82547&viewfull=1#post82547


Bronze age warior was estimated to be 1.70 high and his weight was estimated to be 72-76 kg. It's me, for a comparison (~193cm, ~90kg)

He posessed haplogroup R1a1, predicted through his y-STR profile that is clearly R1a and somewhere downstream of M417>Z645, probably Z280 (but other options like Z282* or PF6155xM458 and even Z93 can't be excluded at this moment).
I've received contradictory info on whether he is positive to SRY 1532.2 or not(unpopular, non-widely used upstream SNP) but haplotype is unmistakably R1a and he will be tested for much more Y-SNPs in the future.

His pigmentation is a fantasy, allele for a pigmentation of hair, eyes and skin are to be tested soon.

>R1a1a1b1a2-Z280=1. Halberstadt Germany 1113-1021BC. Urnfield culture.

Urnfield was never a single culture. There were Urnfield cultures, it was a type of cultures (Urnfield cultural horizon).

That R1a-Z280 from Halberstadt (in East Germany) belonged to the Lusatian culture, which was one of Urnfield cultures.

The Lusatian culture at its peak extended from Western Ukraine to East Germany, with its heart located in Poland.

The most famous of archaeological sites of the Lusatian culture is Biskupin in Wielkopolska (Greater Poland):

Here is a documentary (in English) about Biskupin:

The R1a-Z280 burial from Halberstadt was part of the Lusatian culture, but as you can see it was peripherial (while Biskupin was in the central part):

http://s23.postimg.org/ejjquv6d7/Lusatian_Culture.png

The area around Rogalin near Hrubieszów, close to the Polish-Ukrainian border - where this warrior was buried - also became part of the Lusatian culture later on. But this warrior is from the earlier Bronze Age and predates the existence of the Lusatian culture, which emerged during the later Bronze Age.

He was about 47 when he died. He was buried with a "princess" (named so due to rich grave goods), aged about 20:

I read an article which stated he had a young paternal relative buried with him or in a near by his grave. They know because of Y-STR. It could be his son, nephew, etc. Maybe the Princess is his daughter or another young female relative. The experts should get an idea what their relation is soon.

"Newly recorded Neolithic earthen long barrows in Southern Poland" A. Przybyl 2014

I find interesting possible links (already mentioned) between Long Barrows Culture and the subsequent culture of the Funnelbeaker/Tricherbecher -
it recalls me COON saying the Swedish Neolithic people had a 50% phenotypicial imput of Long Barrows people, surely coming from Britain but maybe (his words) too from Russia, coming across lands (a remote South Caucasus connexion?) - I've not sufficient knowledge of Archeology on this matter and I don't know where COON had picked his thought... the ressemblance of this Y-R1a skull AND face (R1a not my prefered bet I confess) of Poland with the typical Long Barrows types (except occiput profile form) is a strange coincidence. and metrically speaking, the most striking modification of the so called "kymric Iron age nordic type of COON compared to classical 'nordic' could very well have been caused by crossings with this element among Long Barrows peoploe, plus some other light influences so? Perhaps pure coincidence or some far common origin?
by the way the first Slavic elites were of two principal type: one more akin to 'nordic' (classical) so partly to Corded types, and one akin to the 'lymric' type - (some Scythians too, not all) - my Joker? Wait and see! good luck!
