    Some people simply don't care. I certainly don't.

    I'd abrogate my national and ethnic allegiances in a heartbeat if I could afford nice apartment in downtown Buenos Aires or something :embarassed:

    The Romans and Macedonian were in matters of warfare much more sophisticated than the Greeks. Philip II could conquer Greece because of his tactical & strategic innovations. This is completely...

    Now that you mention it, the usernames are quite similar too. I totally didn't make the connection :D

    Good analysis by the way, I was thinking along those lines as well. I wonder if the Swiss HG...

    Barbarian invasions tended to be the norm rather than something unusual up until recently, and few peoples in history were spared that fate. The archetypical barbarians of late antiquity - the Slavs...

    Someone on athrogenica dug this up from Lazaridis et al. . I had never noticed this:



    I had said earlier in the thread that it is my belief that basal diversity under R1 is concentrated in the...

    Yeah those samples are classified as wild in table S2 in the supplements, the earliest domesticated samples being Anatolia & Portugal. The haplotypes in the Portuguese samples is very eastern though,...

    At least that's what it looks like to me. In the Amorim (2018) paper the Germanics from Late Antiquity are already differentiated from North-Eastern Europeans like Balto-Slavs, so I doubt the...

    I think the authors sought to address Anthony's idea of endemic warfare in the steppe, which made those cultures become expanionist and militaristic. It seems that this wasn't the case.

    It's awesome that these results have essentially confirmed that the East-West differentation in Europe exists due to hunter gatherer admixture. The ancient Germanic samples published recently had...
  10. High mortality, absence of physical trauma in the Bronze Age steppe

    found on: indo-european.eu



    The adaptation to fast life histories as the authors call it is interesting considering what we know of the DNA of the steppe cultures. Fertility was very high, and...

    Yes, a wild horse from north-eastern Romania and another one from Germany carry the same Y-DNA-haplotype. We don't know if they were actual Przewalski horses however, or if they were on the clade...
  12. Decline of genetic diversity in ancient domestic stallions in Europe

    Abstract:



    This is very interesting, as it clearly suggests that horses were domesticated by various cultures of the Neolithic. The earliest domestic horses came from northern Anatolia...

    I wonder if steppe-admixed groups with R1a-L657 could have come to India-Pakistan from Afghanistan via a more southern route after coming down from the steppe, explaining the lack of L657 further...

    The Veneti lived almost a thousand years before the Proto-Slavs expanded, and their language was typologically close to the other Central European IE languages. Modern Slovenes are genetically &...

    I did get that. But scratch it, I just read the thread on anthrogenica and saw comments insinuating that David Reich would push for a southern homeland because he's Jewish. Those anthrogenica guys...

    It's sad that the whole debated has such a strong ideological tinge. I'd always maintained that there was a strong attachement to a northern homeland that had little to do with pure science and more...

    Compared to Europe every place is undersampled I guess. My thinking was that R1b-M269 would most likely not have been among the earliest adopters of agriculture due to its structure which implies...

    Come on, the account cited by Herodotus clearly implies that the Scythians moved north and ousted the Cimmerians from Eastern Europe. This is well known to students of ancient history - altough I...

    It's not my opinion, it's pretty much scholarly consensus. There's no Araxes east of the Caspian. He uses the same name for both rivers, and in this particular quote it's clearly the eastern one.

    I am 95% sure that Herodotus was talking about the Oxus here, which he often confused with the Araxes. If this is indeed so, crossing the river would mean that the Scythians migrated north from...

    Wow, looks like a real melting pot. So many Qs and C, O rather infrequent? Is it the Huns? Looks more like a Yenisseian group.

    Also super rare R1b-PH200. And 8*J, 4*G & 2*E. Iranic or Turkic?

    I'm sure the right population will be found eventually. But I still find the findings in the paper very strange to say the least.

    According to Firasat (2007) there's no U5 in the most steppe admixed South Asians, the Kalash. Lots and lots of U4 however:

    pre-HV = 22.7%
    HV* = 4.5%
    H (354, CRS)= 4.5%
    U2e = 15.9%
    U4 = 34.1%...

    I misremembered - it's not Mesolithic but Tripolye already! So theoretically an origin in the southern Cacausus can't be excluded.

    Another interesting mtDNA match between South Asia & Europe: U4d,...
