    Yes. The Celts were brave warriors but too individualistic and lacking a proper group strategy. The Gauls didn't like using archers, slingers or artillery (onagers, ballistae) as they considered it a...
  2. When did each country reach a GDP per capita of $5000 or 10,000 historically?

    If you ever searched for a country's GDP per capita chances are that you saw a chart showing its evolution over the years. For example the United States had a GDP per capita (PPP) of $54,000 in 2017,...

    Two months have passed since I broached this topic. EU countries have largely caught up with the US and UK in terms of vaccination rates. According to Our World in Data, these are the percentages of...

    I have added the average for 23 samples from Early Bronze Age Serbia (from Zegarac 2021, contemporary to the Unetice culture further north). Thanks again to Jovialis for providing the samples.

    Julius Caesar was a very controversial figure in his own time. After all, it is his naked ambition that eventually caused Roman senators to assassinate him. And among his assassins were officers that...

    I haven't seen the 1997 documentary about Julius Caesar.

    The BBC made a documentary call Ancient Rome: Rise and Fall of an Empire in 2006 (6 episodes).

    Using only Epipaleolithic to Chalcolithic samples I get something similar from you using the 2way admixtures, except that I get Globular amphora instead of Early Neolithic Anatolia.

    Thanks to Jovialis I was able to add more Neolithic samples from Anatolia, bringing to total of aceramic Neolithic from 8 to 14 and or Early Neolithic from 7 to 20 samples.

    Trust in government by country

    The OECD has just released the new stats of trust in government. The results are edifying. The Swiss have the most confidence in their leaders (84.6%), which is not surprising considering that...
  10. Gallic Wars : list of legates and other staff officers in Julius Caesar's army

    I am currently reading the book series Marius' Mules about the Gallic Wars (first 9 volumes, one book per year) and the Civil War between Caesar and Pompey. It is historical fiction, but written...

    The Denisovan admixture in Tibetans and other East Asians is very limited though.

    "At a given admixture time (Tadm), a single pulse of admixture is introduced from Denisovans to the ancestral...

    The artist, Haroun Binous, has also recreated the faces of almost all Roman emperors from Augustus to Arcadius. Great job!

    I am pitching in a bit late. When the first paper about the Yamna culture's Y-DNA was published in 2015, I pointed out a few possible reasons explaining why the R1b samples were all Z2103. Those...

    It's practically impossible to give a fair estimate of the number of "ethnic English" outside England as English colonists have mixed extensively with people from many other countries (Scots, Welsh,...

    That kind of study is highly disappointing. I was hoping that they would test deep clades of R1b-U152, but they didn't test any apart from L2! How is that possible? We are in 2021, not in 2011.
  16. Facial reconstructions of famous ancient Greeks

    Italian artist Alessandro Tomasi has reconstructed the faces of ancient Greek philosophers, mathematicians and politicians. Here are a few of them by chronological order.

    I have added:

    - Chalcolithic Italy : closest to modern Sardinians (distance 6.1) and nobody else.

    - Middle/Late Bronze Age central and north Italy (added 5 samples for a total of 9) : most...
  18. Largest Italian, Irish, Polish, Greek cities in the world outside their home country

    Great Britain, Spain and Portugal have set up population colonies that are now home to far more people than the country of origin. But what about more recent diaspora of countries that didn't set up...
  19. List of cheeses invented over 300 years ago

    I recently finished reading Alberto Angela's I tre giorni di Pompei (The [last] three days of Pompeii), in which he mentions that mozzarella didn't exist at the time, but was invented in the 5th...

    I found this on this site.

    I have just added 12 Norwegian Viking samples (I updated this post with individual samples). They are also ethnically mixed, like the other Vikings so far. Overall these 12 samples have an average...

    If you guys cannot have a civilised discussion I am closing this thread.

    To summarise the Y-haplogroups from this study, we've got:

    Neolithic

    One G2 in Lazio

    Chalcolithic

    - Three G2a-L30>CTS2488>F3359 in Veneto.
    - One I2a2a-M223 and one I2a1a-M26 in Romagna...

    Not really. This study only has two Bronze Age Y-DNA samples (both R1b-P312, one U152>L2>DF90 and the other one apparently U152 based on the SNP calls). Hardly representative. We would need over 100...

    I wrote that PF5160 is particularly common in Arabia (Levant included should I add) and Greece. It may be found elsewhere but it is much less common. There is no good data about deep clades of J2 in...
