    Good observations. I think "Western Mediterranean Early European Farmer" is now mostly used as synonym with the Impressed Ware/Cardial/Epicardial branch of EEF (in contrast to the "Danubian" route of...

    Fully agree, the Arab theory seems completely weird and not supported by any substantial evidence. Too little J1 almost everywhere, too deep coalescence times, and one would need bottle neck effects...

    Actually there is direct archeological evidence since 5th millennium BCE, including cattle and pottery - which would all line up with the Mediterranean EEF hypothesis for V88:...

    But then the questions remain, how did V2197 get from the Western Mediterranean to Arabs, why is it at much higher frequency in C. Africa than Arabs (if it was recent gene flow drift seems...

    Where do you have that info from? They never report admixture proportions with individual labels (unfortunately). There are a few slightly "Eastern" individuals, but we don't know if it is them (they...

    Ahm since only the Sardinian/Iberian V88-subbranch (V2197) is basal to the African V88, that kind of narrows down geographic path? In aDNA, V2197 is not found anywhere east of Sardinia as of now...

    Thanks for sharing the map and your thoughts on substructure within Sardinia, Angela, that's really useful context. You present some really good interpretations of the findings.

    Out of curiosity,...

    These "boat folks" are probably the Cardial Ware cultures (see wikipedia), who expanded within few hundred years 5500 years BCE across the whole Western Mediterranean, origin not known for sure (but...

    Just checked out the Supp. of Fernandes et al. Four of the Late Antiquity samples are from a cave that can be only reached by sea, without any archeological context (reads like they thought it's a...

    and that's the zoom in of the full PCA. The roughly 50-70 % Nuragic ancestry for present-day Sardinians (in both papers) seem very plausible.

    There was obviously some gene flow and with some...

    Based on the author attribution, the aDNA work is mostly from Posth/Krause; and the analysis and writing was mostly done by the Novembre lab. Well, that explains the interesting PCA.

    wow I like the PCA in the other paper so much better.

    Look at the PCA (especially of the other paper), the Morocco_LN shift does not make too much sense for the shift to present-day Sardinia. It's also really low quality individuals (<250k SNPs...

    Good catch, Angela. Reich's present-day Sardinian samples seem to be from Ogliastra, which is not completely representative.

    The R1b-V88 in 10/25 samples is really surprising (also 2 in the Reich paper in seems), basically doubles the number of R1b-V88 we have for whole ancient Europe. At present-day V88 is found in...

    10/25 R1b-V88 in ancient Sardinia

    Hi guys,

    exciting new evidence for the origin and spread of R1b-V88 (now mainly prevalent in Central Africa and different from the West European R1b-296), from the analysis of Sardinian aDNA....
