    Wow really impressive artwork! I had never seen some of these, and some that I knew are here far better pictured, and I can see their beauty much more clearly. Thank you!

    Oh God, what a nonsense to anyone with a modicum of interest in historical linguistics. It seems many people still do not get that:
    1) sound similarities are just the very first step to prove any...

    You're readings posts too fast and inattentively. I said some think the Gutians might be Indo-European-speaking and were thought by some to be distantly related to Tocharians, that is, one of the...

    Ah, now that sounds more interesting to be investigated, particularly because a southern route of dispersion for Graeco-Armenian cannot be ruled out. In any case, the Mukania > Mazania change just...

    How do you link Mazandaran or Mazania to Mycenae?...

    How do you link Mazandaran or Mazania to Mycenae? Sound similarity alone or is there something else? The two words do not even sound very similar in fact, because Ancient Greek would have Mycenae...

    When I read Cyrus' posts, I always wonder if there is anything and anyone in Europe that didn't start in Iran or has a direct connection with Iran, having come directly from there already with their...

    So don't most of your comments basically point to a PIE origin and expansion coming from the eastern Balkans with a population formed by a mix of SE European EEF with PC Steppe people, eventually...

    That doesn't work as evidence, because, first of all, Hittite doesn't have that word, so it's irrelevante when it was (and I'm sure you can appreciate the difference between written attestation and a...

    I think you're letting your biases against what Anthony thinks obscure your judgement, because it seems pretty clear to me that the children were kept in the tell towns and lived and died there...

    So, for what it's worth, I decided to play a bit with the aDNA samples available in the Global25 datasheets, and though these are of course flawed and only proximate models I think they're still...

    Wasn't Repin a derivation of Khvalynsk at least partially? Maybe Siberian input was only more than negligible in the northern parts (core Khvalynsk territory) and not more to the South, or it was...

    The CHG that mixed with EHG to form Eneolithic Steppe and later Yamnaya people seems to be pretty diverged in relation to the CHG represented by the South Caucasus DNA samples that we have found to...

    Nothing to do with R1b-L51, Cyrus. The sample is autosomally almost identical to modern Portuguese and Spanish people and shares a very similar combination of genetic admixtures with them, also...

    Do we know the ultimate point of dispersal of the ancestors of Ashkenazis after the emigration from Judea, but before their consolidated settlement in Europe? Or did they simply jump right to Europe...

    Why would you assume that? That only makes sense if Armenians necessarily stayed put, and only Greeks moved around, but there is no such evidence. Some common phonological aspects are not enough to...

    What prevents it? I don't follow your logic. Did modern Persian completely ditch the Old Persian word daushta = to love?
  17. Doubts about the "Tanzania_Zanzibar_First Millennium" aDNA sample

    I decided to post this doubt of mine here so that someone might perhaps help clarify what's happening with the average population DNA sample named TZA_Zanzibar_FirstMillennium in Global25 datasheets....

    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...

    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...
