    If you don't think that kind of (pseudo)science was politically motivated then I have a bridge to sell you. Archaeology, historiography, "genetics" (in the pre-1953 meaning of the word),...

    Would you be opposed to similar scientific guidelines existing during the early 20th century, when the WASP American establishment tried to curb Italian, Greek, Slavic, etc immigration to the US by...

    Have you taken a DNA test yourself? You need to upload the raw data file from your DNA test to Gedmatch.

    We've only had 2 papers focused on ancient Greece so far, and a meagre number of samples. We don't even know if the bones from Mycenae have recoverable DNA. For example, the Lerna bone collection...

    Italic tribes are easy to differentiate from Mycenaeans because they have western hunter-gatherer admixture (which the Mycenaeans lack) and no significant amount of CHG or Iran_N ancestry.

    It's very easy to go on Yfull and see the J2a phylogeny. Some Italian samples do plausibly have a neolithic, chalcolithic, or Aegean BA/IA origin, but others clearly don't:

    Where does this caricature come from? The Iliad, the oldest piece of Greek literature, ends with a tribute to Hector, their "eastern enemy". Besides, the Greeks weren't a monolith and there were...

    The problem with this theory is that Mycenaeans did have some EHG, more than BA Anatolians (who had very little to none according to the abstract). Of course one can create more complex scenarios...

    I didn't say anything about bias, I just expressed my bewilderment on why it's taken so long for the Reich lab and the Moots/Antonio team to acknowledge what their data show.

    I'm not sure that's controversial, it's obvious Illyrians and Northeast Italians descend largely from the same or very similar populations.

    Yeah, but we're talking semantics. Usually by IE lineages we refer to lineages that existed in the early IE sites and that had the typical steppe autosomal profile. EEF languages and "Old European"...

    Where did E-L618 come from? Saying "E-V13 is a BA lineage" is a tautology, by default any lineage that exists today must have an ancestor lineage in the BA. Saying "E-V13 is an IE lineage" is also a...

    There is zero evidence for any of that. In fact, it's less than zero because we know the vast majority of steppe folk in Ukraine and Russia had brown hair and brown eyes and we know they mixed with...

    People who imagine Mesolithic hunter-gatherers looking like modern populations should take a good look at this new PCA from the Allentoft et al pre-print:

    Don foragers could have some WHG that is "eating" into later populations' WHG ancestry. But Boncuklu was also WHG-shifted compared to Barcin if I remember the PCA from that paper correctly.

    Not to be a party pooper, but these are most likely based on the HIrisPlex prediction system, so they're to be taken with a grain of salt. Likelihood of blonde hair seems to be overestimated by this...

    Well, we can't be sure, but the country distribution (Balkans, Anatolia, Caucasus) looks similar to the modern distribution of R-Z2103 and I-L699, which are the Yamnaya clades. Yfull is also missing...
