    And in general there could have been more proximal sources for more eastern admixture (diluted ANE related), than what people ususally think.

    In the broader meaning of the term Germanic people, Slavic people, Turkic people, Magyars etc. were also called 'Scythian' at some point. There is a reason someone in the 5th century BC makes a...

    'North East Caucasians' do not have high concentrations of J2a, Nakhs do.

    J1 is the major haplogroup in Dagestanians with significant frequencies of R1b-Z2103 in some of them. And 'Caucasian...

    No, some people wanted to connect 'Minoans' to Kura-Araxes, for their own reasons, which is something I did not ever understand. We had a G2b labeled 'Kura-Araxes', a J1, there was an R1b of some...

    Well some people elsewhere were probably cooking their food properly. They would have had other problems we do not have though.

    Well, the Achaei and Heniochi etc. are in the region where we can find Abkhazians, Adygei people today etc. and he doesn't call them Scythian, as far as I remember.

    He believed that there was a...
  11. The native people of Lemnos were Thracian,...

    The native people of Lemnos were Thracian, according to the sources and there are Mycenaean-related elements early. The myths connect them to Hephaestus, Kabeiroi etc. and, in general, for me it is...

    These estimates may change though and they have changed in the past too.
    Concerning 'paleo-Balkan' lineages you should see the subclades. Even if an haplogroup is 'paleo-Balkan' back migrations are...

    I am interested in which contemporary sources say they were Scandinavians.

    Constantine VII in DAI mentions some river rapids, and their names ρωσιστί and σκλαβηνιστί. But he also mentions their...

    No. First of all, I said that chance similarities are possible. Secondly the Vikings study showed people with R1b-U152, DF27 etc. and 'southern' ancestry etc. moving north before the 'Vikings' era...

    Well, there are chance similarities possible but personally I have considered the similarity between Rasenna and Ruthenia.

    I believe that if they sample prehistoric pile dwellings (stilt houses) around the Alps they would find L51 and if they sample Terramare they would find U152.

    Many ancient samples with so called...

    What you have in your mind as 'Hellenic' is just Attic.

    Either way, Doric Greek had 'tu'. Though the assumption that T was used only and exclusively for a /t/ sound is not exactly correct. It is...

    Yeah, I think we will find R1b-L23 among Elamites.

    Some say Elamite was equidistant between Afroasiatic and Dravidian. Both Ashur and Elam are sons of Shem in the Hebrew Bible.
