    I'm very worried about it. The risk of catastrophic climate change under certain scenarios discussed in many IPCC reports should spur action by humanity to at least buy itself some insurance. Yet we...

    Thanks for these findings which suggest cultural diffusion of horse domestication rather than demic diffusion of horse riding pastoralists, and their horses. Focusing on male ancestry only, I was...

    I would have thought that horses were more relevant to roaming pastoralists than to sedentary farmers such as the EEFs who spread west from Anatolia before the late Bronze-Iron Age yamnaya...

    Then that's a big Oops for LivingDNA! try another company that has a bigger reference population database for autosomal tests (Ancestry for e.g., not sure about FT DNA but both were accurate for me!)

    I reckon income and education will play an important role (the 2 are also highly correlated) - if average incomes and educational opportunities are lower in the southern states (where obesity rates...

    I wouldn't be too surprised about that finding given human migration in general and specifically in your deep ancestry within the British Isles. DF-13 is a subclade of R-L21 which is a typical...

    Thanks Tomenable for that PCA chart - entirely consistent with all my ancestry results which show a predominantly Iberian peninsula (deep) ancestry even though my ancestors up to 6 generations back...

    Thanks for your helpful reply! I still find these archeogenetic matches quite confusing - but the specific samples for my Illyrian matches are 13313B and 13313C - there's no mention which haplogroups...

    I don't want to paste the long list of my ancient population and deep dive matches but my closest ancient populations turn out to be Visigoths and Illyrians. The latter match is based on skeletal...
