    I expect Siberia was a happening place during the Ice Age. Consider how different the geography was. Those massive rivers running south to north today would have even more of a fall as the ice sheets...

    Trade in Zanzibar was increasing rapidly in the 8th century. It became a common stop for Persian, Indian and Arab traders. Arabs also bought considerable numbers of European slaves who could have...

    I have some very good friends who are into Welsh independence and all things Celtic. Good people, smart and educated but you cannot tell them that the Celts were not the original inhabitants of...

    Well, something happened. Our lot had basically stayed in the climate zones we were designed for for a quarter of a million years. And suddenly we just swept away all the other lineages, some of them...

    Am I reading the first chart right? Saami as 100 % steppe? That does not seem to fit with my understanding of what "steppe" is ? I would have expected a mix between something more Eastern and...

    Your analogies are poor. The issue here is not the population replacement. We know that can happen due to environmental causes. The issue is the extreme lopsidedness in replacement between genders.

    100 % replacement in an environment that had a history of wiping out populations is not the same as a selective replacement of the men in a land with good carrying capacity and mediterranean climate.

    19 percent !?! Thats an amount almost equal to an F2! The average between 2 and 19 % is 10,5. Thats pretty much a F3!

    As a Norwegian I feel I should point out that the amount of UV radiation you get exposed to is not just dependent on the infalling UV due to latitude. How much snow there is reflecting the UV is a...

    That does not seem to be entirely so. "Eight thousand years of natural selection in Europe" by Mathieson, Lazardis et al note that blue eyes do seem to be subject to what appears to be high selective...

    Skin color seems slow to respond to environmental pressure, and I suspect changes are generally associated with dietary changes. Blue eyes however, seem to respond quickly and heavily to latitude,...

    I do remember there was some Native American DNA got into the Icelandic gene pool. C1, most likly entered around the year 1000. So it is not that far-fetched. I don't think it'd be much of a...

    Are any of the Scandinavian samples older than the 10th century?

    I'm afraid my German isn't good for much, certainly not up to the video. Farming came to the southern end of Scandinavia about 4 000 BC. From everything I've read, the selection for light skin in the...

    From what I've read, the EHG population was lighter in skin color than the others. They moved into Scandinavia and mixed with the dark WHG at the end of the ice age. You'd expect that would yield a...

    This is the sort of possibilities that I wanted to discuss. Haldanes rules and all that.

    Gannicls, while the probability of evolution producing complicated organisms such as us may seem infinitly...

    He does post some reasonable stuff too. It may be that he is just excessively invested in making the facts fit his narrative of being part of a superior hybrid species.

    911, population mixing does not lead to fixed amounts of genes holding the same proportions for generations after mixing anyway.

    For a well-known example close to the modern age I give you...

    Light skin pigmentation in humans is associated with the genes SLC24A5 and SLC45A2. These genes came with us out of Africa, where they were present in low numbers. During the human populations stay...

    I don't think you understand how population mixing happens, or genetics.

    It is possible that the contact wasn't consensual in general. Of the three species, humans appear to have been the least well-equipped physically and strength-wise. And that would skewer DNA transfer...
  22. Barriers to crossbreeding with Neanderthals and Denisovans -discussion

    We overlapped with Neanderthals for thousands, in some places maybe tens of thousands of years. Probably interacted on territorial borders with them for as long. And yet still, we only seem to have...

    We know which genes cause light hair and blue eyes in humans. And we have high-coverage Neanderthal genomes. As far as I know we do not find the genes that produce light pigmentation in humans in the...

    If you do come across that, please post a link here, I'd be very interested to read it.

    Well, Basal Eurasians I or II would seem to be the go-to for this one. I am not sure why the primary theory seems to be introgression from a previous out-of-Africa event, would not a second migration...
