    How firm is this? I mean "We were always here, and had no mixing from outside" sounds very much like the politically preferred result. I do know that matters such as the Indo-European expansion is...

    I've recently come across a paper that has an interesting and plausible-sounding explanation for why we have DNA in us from only one line of Neanderthals.

    Hm... You know this dating is at the start or just a little bit before the emergence of the Atlantic Megalith Culture. The people who raised all those standing stones along the Atlantic European...

    Archaic humans seemed less mobile than the current lot. A pattern seems to have been that they would displace a more archaic population and then settle in to differentiate over time, like the...

    From my reading they are saying its back migration from Western Eurasia.

    Well, its a little bit interesting. The subject seems to be nearly 100 % WHG. No admixture with Scandinavian Hunter-Gatherers. Also lacks Farmer DNA although both the location and time period is...

    It makes a lot of sense that humans emerging from Africa would initially expand far faster along the band of climate that they were familiar with, i.e. east through south Asia. I wonder if some...

    When I was a teen we would watch action movies on VHS, and it seemed that fighting would be something we'd be expected to do occasionally as adults. But as the decades pass I have grown older, and...

    They are exactly what you'd expect. Gay penetrative sex carries a higher risk of infection because of the greater risk of tearing and bleeding.

    About fifteen years or so ago, the company I worked for was kind enough to finance my going back to uni for another masters degree, this time in a health care subject. It was quite an international...

    Isn't Mbeki the guy who denied the existence of AIDS, and lives in an area with 20-25 % of the population HIV positive? And where armed forces are sometimes over 90% HIV positive due to heavy use of...

    Native American populations diverged from Old world maybe 25 000 years ago, probably with some standstill in Beringia. Yamnaya was maybe 5 500 years ago.

    Arab traders were in Zanzibar 800 AD, and with a rapidly increasing presence. The Arab sphere at the time included millions of people of a European genetic heritage. The inclusion of Iberia alone may...

    An interesting thing about interbreeding with Neanderthals is, though, that mostly we didn't. Even in places where we overlapped with them for thousands of years. We clearly did have several...

    Zanzibar traded heavily with the Arabs and the Indian ocean nations in the first millennium, particularly from the 8th through 10 century.

    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.
