During the Final Eneolithic the Corded Ware Complex (CWC) emerges, chiefly identified by its specific burial rites. This complex spanned most of central Europe and exhibits demographic and cultural associations to the Yamnaya culture. To study the genetic structure and kin relations in CWC communities, we sequenced the genomes of 19 individuals located in the heartland of the CWC complex region, south-eastern Poland. Whole genome sequence and strontium isotope data allowed us to investigate genetic ancestry, admixture, kinship and mobility. The analysis showed a unique pattern, not detected in other parts of Poland; maternally the individuals are linked to earlier Neolithic lineages, whereas on the paternal side a Steppe ancestry is clearly visible. We identified three cases of kinship. Of these two were between individuals buried in double graves. Interestingly, we identified kinship between a local and a non-local individual thus discovering a novel, previously unknown burial custom.

Super cool!

so there were Bell Beaker in Poland too
who were their successors?

Where are the Polish Corded Ware compared to modern populations? Somewhere where the modern Mordovians?

Yes, they cluster basically right there where modern Mordovians are. One Poland_CWC sample is close to the main Yamnaya/Afanasievo cluster. The Bell Beakers from southern Poland (Pelczyska_BBC) samples are next to modern French.

Since pigmentation is the main difference among Caucasoids. It might be relevant that all tested samples with enough SNPs were dark eyed and dark haired. (Table S18)
