    It's strange that an academic paper would cite Thor Heyerdahl as an authority. To quote from his Wikipedia page:

    Thanks Angela for posting those other pieces by Albinoni. Even leaving aside the disputed adagio, Albinoni deserves to be on any list of baroque composers.

    The "Adagio in G Minor" is a glorious piece, but the modern consensus is that it's not by Albinoni, even though many recordings attribute it to Albinoni.

    This study adds to the aDNA studies that have settled the debate between the "express train" and "slow boat" models of the settlement of Remote Oceania. It is now clear that the first settlers, the...

    How large do you think the population of Britain was in the 3rd millennium BC? The estimate of demographers is that the population of the British Isles increased from around 25,000 people in 3000 BC...

    I agree. I voted Other and I specify Galileo. There were other Italians who contributed to science, but Galileo is arguably a primary founder of science as we know it. Not just Western science, since...

    The neolithic people of England would probably have had enough trading contact with continental Europe in 2500 B.C. to know that some major transformations were happening on the continent as Corded...

    I'm glad to see my favourite brand, Whittaker's of New Zealand, is on your list. They are Rain Forest Alliance Certified. I recommend their 92% cocoa Ghana if you want a low sugar dark chocolate.

    Yes, both Jerrais and Jersey English (a dialect of English) are sadly in decline. My great-grandfather would have grown up with both in the 19th century. His mother was born in the Breton speaking...

    I find this interesting, since my great-grandfather was born in Jersey. However, I wouldn't say this artwork was British. For historical reasons within the last 1,000 years, Jersey belongs to the UK,...

    In 2017 I had a DNA test with 23andMe. My Y haplogroup result was R1b-L21. Since I had already traced my paternal line ancestry back to Ireland in the mid-18th century, that result was not much of a...

    I agree. Shakespeare was a magician of the English language. He wove spells that will continue to enchant "as long as men can breathe or eyes can see".

    Thanks for posting this. More evidence that strengthens the Out-of-Africa orthodoxy. Perhaps now the small minority who refused to accept Out-of-Africa will finally admit they were wrong.

    Shakespeare's genius

    Shakespeare's genius lay for comedy and humour. In tragedy he appears quite out of his element.

    I'm not sure what a driving country is, but can you cite published research that supports your claim?

    Previous research has shown that average IQ increased in many countries during the 20th...

    I think it's going too far to say that the mammoths of Wrangel Island died out because of inbreeding. Even the authors of that paper only say that inbreeding may have contributed to their extinction....

    Yes, eastern K2b leading to M in New Guinea. P is argued to be of SE Asian origin since P* and P2 are found in Luzon. However, P* is also found in the Andamans, and since the Andamanese have no...

    I think the SE Asian origin of K2b is far from certain, it's mainly based on the haplogroups of modern populations. My hypothesis is that the origin was further west in India or Iran. There's no...

    Austronesian and Austroasiatic are considered to be more recent language families than the Mal'ta era, and are probably associated with the expansion of rice horticulture from South China after 7,000...

    I agree, it would be hard, so it's only an hypothesis that some would call speculative. It's partly based on the father tongue hypothesis: language tends to correlate with Y haplogroups because males...
