    Wow, this is very interesting, thanks for sharing. Which tool/calculator did you use to get this breakdown if I may ask? I'm embarrassed to admit that I only have my FTDNA results which unfortunately...

    The accents in the videos reminded me more of Peloponisos, and Cyprus. But they would not sound "alien" anywhere in Greece, especially in rural areas where "pitch accent" still survives.

    I'm a native Greek speaker. Watching the videos, I understand 50% of the words. Reading the transcript I understand everything. The music is also incredibly similar to traditional Greek music. I...

    I was blond until the age of 6-7, then became darker, even very dark brown during my teenage years. After turning 25 I started going back to a copper shade and remained there. To make it even weirder...
  5. Ancient Greek textiles closer to Near Eastern, Italian closer to Central European

    Analysis of Iron Age textiles indicates that during c. 1000 - 400 BC Italy shared the textile culture of Central Europe, while Greece was largely influenced by the traditions of ancient Near East

    1. "He contradicted in a scientific way". You seem to lack a grasp of what the scientific method includes.
    2. "This is the reason of so much hate from the modern Greeks". Most modern Greeks...

    The authors focused on a specific assumption he made. That's how academic studies work. They test specific hypotheses, not vague general ideas.

    Ok, I understand that it is difficult to let go when one obviously has an axe to grind, but I will try one last time based on simple logic: Fallmerayer argued that Peloponnesean Greeks had been...

    I don't know how accurate this map is and whether it is based on actual ancient DNA samples. Regardless, even if I2 is indeed the oldest hg found in Greece, it would predate the Slavic "invasion"...

    To be honest, we didn't really have to wait for this study to know that Slavic admixture in the Peloponnese is small. The relatively low frequency of YDNA HGs I2 and R1a compared to the Balkan...

    Wow, this was an interesting thread that has totally gone to the dogs thanks to all this nationalistic crap.

    "Did they live no genetic footprint after 300 years of common life with Greeks."

    Very little. The two communities were almost segregated on the basis of religion, as Greeks were Christians the...

    I would say let's not spend too much time arguing about pigmentation. For all we know the choice of colours was based on a small ancient painting found in a 3500 year old grave, as well as on the...

    The lack of colour can be confusing, as subconsiously it makes us perceive the white colour of the washed out marble as skin. I have seen reconstructions of ancient Greek busts and statues based on...

    I am not denying this. What I objected to was the assumption that by the year 1500BC there was aristocracy and commoners that looked physically different from each other.

    Apart from the narrow distance between the eyes, the rest of his features would not look out of place in certain areas of Greece, especially in Arcadia in central Peloponisos where my father...

    The Mycenaeans were basically the people of Homeric stories. Throughout the surviving literature they describe themselves as autochthonous, contrary to the following Dorians who speak clearly about a...

    The Mycenaeans were a complete people, not just a royal family. And who were those "commoners" exactly? The Pelasgians? How do you know that they had not also originated from the North?

    What makes you think that nobility in ancient Greece had a northern appearance? There is nothing to indicate this except for the wishful thinking of certain 19th century German romanticists and some...
