    Very interesting! Is it just a mistake or an unwitting consequence of the lack of more aDNA samples, or did Palestine have that much genetic continuity since ancient times? I doubt it. It barely...

    This change only took place in the last centuries. It just cannot date to a time when Ronance Tuscan did not even exist, because the entire region still spoke Etruscan. Standard Italian is based on...

    I think any long-term evolutionary explaantion may even end up being correct, but they are not at the root of what's happening now. The drop happened within less than 2 generations, roughly between...

    That website probably just doesn't have any Native American and Pacific Islander DNA samples (a huge flaw in my opinion, as those aren't "tiny" and extremely rare populations on a worldwide basis),...

    Haha! Who made that map? What's its source? You yourself? Tyrrhenian IS a language family composed of Etruscan + Rhaetian + Lemnian (which by the way is very Etruscan-like, possibly just a dialect of...

    These are the best models I could find for the Armenian samples, using virtually all steppe-derived BA (from EBA to MLBA) samples in addition to several non-steppe samples of West Eurasia. IMO they...

    I'm talking of modern Armenians. I'm not sure we can assert that those MLBA Armenia samples were already Armenian in language. The language itself is only attested much later, and lots of things...

    Ah now THAT was what I was looking for to talk about! Thanks for some reality check to get the thread back on its trail. :-D

    Oh, I see, in the absence of other correlations then the "major" difference is the frequency of a certain type of nose. Yeah, that makes sense...

    Spaniards are among the peoples with most progressive ("politically correct" for some) views in Europe - and yet they are not the lightest skinned. Since skin color and sexual dimorphism didn't...

    Right, that's why the Swedes were such charmingly submissive, harmless and pacifist creatures throughout the Middle Ages (unless you're implying some major genetic change happened in the last...

    It could've been a chain of events caused by the same climate worsening: North Europeans of CWC origin migrating southward to the Pontic-Caspian steppes, and simultaneously or just before that R1b...

    Maybe Afanasievo remnants, who were basically identical to the Yamnaya (not necessarily coming directly as Afanasievo people, but perhaps as absorbed clans into the later Sintashta/Andronovo/Srubnaya...
  14. What "many cultural/archaeological" differences...

    What "many cultural/archaeological" differences are you referring to? They were close enough to be two cultures from different parts of the PIE-speaking sphere of influence. In my nMonte models, I...
  15. Nonsense. CWC appears centuries later than the...

    Nonsense. CWC appears centuries later than the early phase of the Yamnaya culture, which is a direct and continuous development from the earlier Repin culture. R1a-M417 was also found centuries...

    "Closely related" with a common origin in 2600 B.C., even before Akkadians had conquered all of Mesopotamia? Is that still "closely related" to you, who claim a Proto-Germanic migration during the...

    I'm not sure what this is supposed to mean. That Z93 Sintashta and Andronovo pastoralists with a strong horse culture couldn't have come from a CWC Z93-bearing population with a much less prominent...

    Would you mind showing us some of the secific results of your models of genetic ancestry, including the genetic distances and the like? That would be helpful for us to comment about what you found...

    AFAIK there are indications that the Terramare remnants spread to Central Italy and even South Italy. A dramatic socioeconomic collapse doesn't need to mean the complete disappearance of the people...

    Well, you're essentially repeating what I said when you claim there is "no fixed rule saying that...". Precisely because there are historic instances where the migration of a large number of people,...

    Exactly. For me the "confession statement" of his has already been said: "I believe θ(th) didn't exist in the north of Europe before the arrival of proto-Germanic language in 500 BC"; and then he...

    I talk about admixture and you reply talking about Y-DNA haplogroups, and the most upstream forms of those haplogroups generically? Do you know what autosomal admixture means? Honestly I can't even...

    What? Do you think a sound must be brought to some region from outside for it to start existing due to some sound change in a given language? There is no proof at all that /th/ existed or DID NOT...

    Interesting conclusions. Who could that intrusive industry be? I'd bet on the arrival of ANE-rich populations from Central Asia, considering that Basal Eurasian ancestry was already widespread as far...

    These "urban legend" explanations for the name of regions and ethnicities is one of the things that takes away even more of the scarce credibility of these ancient authors. This is not the first nor...
