    The pastoralists resemble Cushites a lot. It looks like they came from an intermediate location in Sudan where a Taforalt/Natufian population acquired admixture related to present day Nilotes.

    Yes, I think the introgression of EHG alleles accelerated the trend towards depigmentation. You see this in northern Baltic CWC, which goes from more or less uniformly dark to uniformly light between...

    Don't think GAC and the blond Hungarian LBK had it. That doesn't mean rs12821256 isn't a strong causal factor in blondism. But the selective pressure was in place among farmers before the...

    In HIrisPlex-S rs12821256 isn't required for blondism I think.

    Boys suffer disproportionate degrees of infant mortality in most tribal societies (due negligence and culling). That's because having many daughters is the easiest way to become wealthy.

    As for...

    Yes, they killed their swarthy kids. As always you came up with the most plausible explanation. How do you do it?
  7. An early presence of Italic in Italy would...

    An early presence of Italic in Italy would explain why the two branches (Latino-Faliscan and Osco-Umbrian) are so different from each other. I think that's one of the problems with the Villanovs...
  8. That's essentially the Pallottino hypothesis. I...

    That's essentially the Pallottino hypothesis. I think it must be either that or Woudhuizen's hypothesis (Villanova = Italic, Apennine = Etruscan) . All the other hypotheses seem to rely on special...

    But in the LBA it's the Apennine and Urnfield cultures that collide in Italy. Perhaps some Terramare people survived without leaving an archaeological culture, but there's no good reason to derive...
  10. There were a number of tribes that have lived in...

    There were a number of tribes that have lived in S. Italy before the Osco-Umbrian expansion. The Oenotrians and their mythical ruler Italus are interesting for instance.
  11. So same old 'eastern' hypothesis. This begs the...

    So same old 'eastern' hypothesis. This begs the question, since the earliest UP transitioners (Oase, Ust-Ishim) went extinct, where did the Sungir and Goyet populations come from? For the latter my...

    Don't be cryptic. Who was in BA N. Italy other than Terramare and the Urnfielders?

    Anyone who talks about Etruscan archaeology should know about the Terramare collapse. I linked a comprehensive paper above, and I even highlighted the relevant parts.

    The region was depopulated. There was no pre-Anything in North Italy when the Villanovans came.

    The problem with autochthony is the lack of an indigenous element that could be responsible for a hypothetical language shift:

    Shocking Discovery – The Skeletons Are Much OlderForensic experts from Centre for GeoGenetics in Copenhagen, Denmark and University of Oslo, Norway have now examined the two corpses in the burial and...

    So which cultures did they spread with.
  19. Many ideas are wrong and still accepted. Urnfield...

    Many ideas are wrong and still accepted. Urnfield material cultures are found in the regions where later we see the Etruscans, Rhaetians, Veneti and the Latins. That doesn't mean that all those...
  20. I have zero stakes in it, why wouldn't I like it?...

    I have zero stakes in it, why wouldn't I like it? It's just outdated now that we know migration and conquest are the primary reasons for linguistic/cultural shift. It's not 1960 anymore.
  21. The idea that Proto-Villanova trifurcated into...

    The idea that Proto-Villanova trifurcated into Etruscan, Venetic and Italic is largely an idea based in the old 'pots not people' paradigm of archaeology still prevalent in classical studies. Someone...

    What about the declension system for instance? Typologically Bomhard also sees Tyrsenian as being close (or even the closest relative) to IE, and he's not known for making completely unsubstantiated...

    I think your memory has failed you there, like the other potential Illyrians Kotor_BA plots in Western Europe close to Iberians.

    But if their languages are unrelated, we're back to the question of who these pre-IEs were. It makes no sense.
