    What it concerns me, as usual, is the lack of accuracy. All these tools are inaccurate, even academic papers sometimes are, but MTA is really very inaccurate.

    I don't find a plausible reason to use these labels. Those in Villa Magna or from Cancelleria Basilica are not Tuscan and not all of these samples really come out like the Tuscans. For example,...

    Why did MTA label the sample from Villa Magna in Lazio as Tuscan?

    I find that this lack of accuracy in the MTA's labels, some are just invented, is indicative of a great ineptitude of those who...

    The first Greek source to mention the Tyrrhenians is Hesiod, many centuries before Herodotus. Hesiod makes no mention of an eastern origin of the Tyrrhenians and places them exactly in central Italy...

    I suppose because there is no R1540 at all from Monterotondo in the paper. Something is wrong here at the start (wrong labelling? Or also something else?). We see many mistakes in the academic...

    These are all certainly imprecise tools and I totally agree with you that there is no agreement between methods but on the basis of the distances I would not say that MTA is putting R47 and R835 in...

    They're most likely from here. Do you have exact information about the date of these samples? It is not surprising that there were also migrants to Rome from this part of the Empire.
