    It seems to me we are starting to see the possibility that the Basque language may be an isolate descended from something very old indeed. We've seen some hints that when the WHG culture on the...

    Melanin does protect from UV radiation. You cannot count on high radiation overlapping with low temperatures. Especially if you live in a place with Mediterranean sun and a snowy climate. Your...

    I can't imagine a setting where the ancient SHGs were not heavy consumers of fish though. Theres just not that much else here, and only the coast was icefree for a long time. Seems to me that the...

    I think, if we have to assume the presence of hypothetical, extinct and undetected gene variants to get the skin color we want, we have left science behind. Not to mention, why do we bother to...

    I think we should remember that the geography was quite different during the LGM. Vast ice sheets prssing down the land in the north, massive meltwater rivers going that way in the summer, but no...

    Sardinian-like would be early European farmer, I'd guess. Sardinia is where that peaks as I remember.

    That is... massively interesting. It does look like a lot of things were happening at the time. I am trying to put this into some kind of mental context with what happened with the Early Farmers and...

    Hm. What I've read of the WHGs has mentioned that most of them were genetically homogeneous, even though they covered a fairly large area. Now we are seeing the first megaliths show up in locations...

    I am pressed for time and can't really go through this, can someone tell me how these individuals compare genetically with the mainland Megalith culture? I seem to remember that the Atlantic megalith...

    How firm is this? I mean "We were always here, and had no mixing from outside" sounds very much like the politically preferred result. I do know that matters such as the Indo-European expansion is...

    I've recently come across a paper that has an interesting and plausible-sounding explanation for why we have DNA in us from only one line of Neanderthals.

    Hm... You know this dating is at the start or just a little bit before the emergence of the Atlantic Megalith Culture. The people who raised all those standing stones along the Atlantic European...

    Archaic humans seemed less mobile than the current lot. A pattern seems to have been that they would displace a more archaic population and then settle in to differentiate over time, like the...

    From my reading they are saying its back migration from Western Eurasia.

    Well, its a little bit interesting. The subject seems to be nearly 100 % WHG. No admixture with Scandinavian Hunter-Gatherers. Also lacks Farmer DNA although both the location and time period is...

    It makes a lot of sense that humans emerging from Africa would initially expand far faster along the band of climate that they were familiar with, i.e. east through south Asia. I wonder if some...

    When I was a teen we would watch action movies on VHS, and it seemed that fighting would be something we'd be expected to do occasionally as adults. But as the decades pass I have grown older, and...

    They are exactly what you'd expect. Gay penetrative sex carries a higher risk of infection because of the greater risk of tearing and bleeding.

    Isn't Mbeki the guy who denied the existence of AIDS, and lives in an area with 20-25 % of the population HIV positive? And where armed forces are sometimes over 90% HIV positive due to heavy use of...

    Native American populations diverged from Old world maybe 25 000 years ago, probably with some standstill in Beringia. Yamnaya was maybe 5 500 years ago.

    An interesting thing about interbreeding with Neanderthals is, though, that mostly we didn't. Even in places where we overlapped with them for thousands of years. We clearly did have several...

    Zanzibar traded heavily with the Arabs and the Indian ocean nations in the first millennium, particularly from the 8th through 10 century.
