    And, if I may ask, what are Polish like autosomally in terms of ancient, Iron Age ancestry? Do you think that Polish-like admixture is a truly "Proto-Slavic" sign, or do Polish people in fact inherit...

    Why? I don't see that much WHG in the Yamnaya samples. Also, Ukraine Neolithic and Ukraine BA (Yamnaya) samples look very different, with far less WHG, and even between Ukraine Neolithic and Ukraine...

    Well, that's an oxymoron. I mean, Europe is Eurasia, though it's of course distinguishable due to some partial geographic barriers.

    The Proto-Indo-European reconstruction that is at the basis of this hypothesis is totally amateur and inconsistent not just with modern linguistic research, but also within itself, as it is clearly...

    The main thing to be reminded about the Philistines is that archaeologists had already long seen a lot of similarities of the Philistine material culture with that of the contemporary Aegean,...

    Previous studies dated the European+Levantine admixture in Ashkenazi Jews to some 1000-1500 years ago, but I have more than once seen Razib Khan, for instance, saying that these admixture dating...

    Zoroastrians of Tehran are most definitely a tiny minority of the population that in the last centuries could only maintain their particular religion by becoming increasingly endogamous. In such a...

    Substrate influences happen, but they are not (in all cases, at least) the main drivers of phonetic evolution of most languages.

    But how is that that the nasal sounds of BP were decisively...

    Cyrus, please understand this once and for all: people do add new sounds and forsake former sounds regardless of contacts with people who speak other languages. That's the internal development of...

    Spanish didn't lose its /f/, it in fact palatalized some consonant clusters like /fl/ and /cl/ into the ll palatal consonant, just like Portuguese did turning them into ch, and similar...

    Even Mycenaeans might have had in fact less than ~15-20% (that's the upper reach of the estimates, not the average IIRC), and the Mycenaeans seem to have been relatively late arrivals from the...

    Why do yu presume that the subsequent IEAryan expansions were of admixed populations with little steppic admixture? Couldn't it have been, as the data suggest, a secondary and more demographically...

    It is intriguing for me that 1 of the MLBA Anatolian individuals I have data from consistently picks some small amount of steppe ancestry in the models I have tried for several BA samples of that and...

    Okay. Let us know about it when it's peer-reviewed and published in some reputable scientific publication. Good luck!

    We don't need to assume that, because Armenians became known as Armenians (exonym, not their endonym), then the root of the word Armenia/Armenian must have also come from Proto-Armenian roots or even...

    I can't be sure the Armenian language and its "Armenian proper" ethnos already existed in the very first incursions of steppe ancestry and its admixture with the local populations, but in the Middle...

    Very interesting! Is it just a mistake or an unwitting consequence of the lack of more aDNA samples, or did Palestine have that much genetic continuity since ancient times? I doubt it. It barely...

    This change only took place in the last centuries. It just cannot date to a time when Ronance Tuscan did not even exist, because the entire region still spoke Etruscan. Standard Italian is based on...

    I think any long-term evolutionary explaantion may even end up being correct, but they are not at the root of what's happening now. The drop happened within less than 2 generations, roughly between...

    That website probably just doesn't have any Native American and Pacific Islander DNA samples (a huge flaw in my opinion, as those aren't "tiny" and extremely rare populations on a worldwide basis),...

    These are the best models I could find for the Armenian samples, using virtually all steppe-derived BA (from EBA to MLBA) samples in addition to several non-steppe samples of West Eurasia. IMO they...

    I'm talking of modern Armenians. I'm not sure we can assert that those MLBA Armenia samples were already Armenian in language. The language itself is only attested much later, and lots of things...
