    One of the major Bell Beaker burial sites is under a place called Hemp Hill in Britain. Kind of makes you wonder just how long hemp was grown at Hemp Hill.

    Thanks, Hope.

    They updated the page after I read it. I imagine the prankster is very proud of himself.

    Discovery of Boudicca's Tomb

    An archaeological team in London announced the discovery of legendary Boudicca's tomb at King's Cross Station in London.

    The article describes a chariot burial and a well preserved body of a...

    The journey from Southern Siberia to Anatolia is an easy one I think.

    It can be best explained by the extinction of Megafauna such as the Mammoth and Asian Bison. It was probably these two animals...

    This is a very interesting question.


    There have been some misplaced assumptions about the origin of PIE and what would be considered a serious proposal. They have been mostly driven by a lazy...

    A coalescence time for M417, not R1a.
    Also, a CT time for divergence of R1* at 25,000 is a bit long given that, as I understand Mal'ta was only M207, which culturally fits an earlier split from...

    Well first, LP does have, apparently, a single phylogenetic origin, so that happened somewhere. Founder events most likely explain why there are differences among populations.
    But also, there are...

    Phylogeny of Lactase Persistence

    Here's a post by Maju regarding the phylogeny of LP genes associated with certain populations.

    Here we see that T-13910, G-13915 and G-13907, being variously responsible for Lactase Persistence,...

    Maciamo, you had theorized previously that the spread of incipient farming spread with y-chromsomal lineages descended from K-M526. Although large scale farming was limited to the Near East and East...

    The main point of the Wilde paper argues for "rapid selection" of these complexion genes. (Which follows on the heels of a paper batting down the 'rapid selection' of lactase persistance rates in...

    The Lembombo Bone of Swaziland near South Africa is the oldest example of mathematical computation at approximately 37 years ago.

  12. The modern promotion of cow's milk is probably...

    The modern promotion of cow's milk is probably mostly tied to Quakerism in the US and UK. The Quakers promoted its consumption believing 'it does the body good' to use a cliche, and for that,...

    I think the answer to this question can probably be found by reversing the question.

    1. Why aren't all humans in Eurasia 100% lactase persistent? After all, it is claimed to be a super-gene and...
  14. I'm not suggesting that these technologies came...

    I'm not suggesting that these technologies came from Europe necessarily or at all, as in my view they most likely came from Asia, but I don't buy the multi-invention scenario.
    Take ceramic pottery,...

    I think only from the testing of ancient remains would we know if this seemingly unlikely event happened. As you've said, dna outside of the standard Q/C +A-X paradigm would look indistinguishable...

    I'm neutral on Solutrean or variations, but I wouldn't consider it a crank theory, especially with two European Mesolithic individuals belonging to similar haplogroups as common in Native America. ...
  17. Poll: Not very convincing that Haplogroup H is...

    Not very convincing that Haplogroup H is Magdalenian Paleolithic.

    First of all, it isn't surprising to see Haplogroup H entering Europe at the beginning of Neolithic. It would have spread...

    Excellent point. By the time Sapiens began populating Europe, they were already numerically much greater and already admixed. The population of Europe appears to have been largely replaced several...

    I think the main question that paper attempts to answer is whether:

    1) LP is native to Europe and was postively selected to present levels

    OR

    2) Did LP originate somewhere else, enter...

    I won't toot my own horn too much, but here's another timely T.M. post that I wrote 2 or 3 days before this paper came out regarding the origin of R1b and its move into Europe.




    It's...
  22. The mystery of Lactase Persistence (LP) in Europeans

    Lactase Persistence (ability to digest raw milk comfortably) appears suddenly in Europe after the late neolithic where it was virtually absent before. In Northwestern Europe today it reaches into the...

    Thanks for linking Abernathy's original link, Spakey.

    Something that's piqued my interest is the representation of very steatopygous women in gravattian art that persisted through the Mesolithic...

    It's also possible that C entered the Americas via the conventional Bearing crossing route.

    It could be just another example of the 50th parallel hunting culture that spanned across the north of...
