    Origin of Red Hair in Jewish Populations?

    I've heard that some of the R1a and Eastern Euro component in Jews might even be ancient, or even part of the Israelite ethnogenesis, with LBA Indo-Iranic people assimilating into Canaanite areas. Unsure how plausible this is though, but some Indo-Iranic people were undoubtedly in adjacent areas...

    Identifying the Y-DNA haplogroups of ancient Roman families through their descendants

    I doubt that all J-L283 in Italy is from Messapians or Daunians, though they certainly had a lot of it.

    How much Roman Italian DNA do Iberians have?

    U152 has a low-key but not entirely insignificant presence in Iberia, though obviously well outshined by DF27. A good bit of that may be from Proto-Celt/Celtic related expansions, but some of it may be Roman. Roman colonization is well attested, many from prominent military families of Latin...

    R1b-U152/S28 : more Gaulish or Roman ?

    And Z36, especially in Lombardia it seems. Z36 also appears to rival Z56 in Tuscany.

    Do you believe that Y-DNA influences looks and behaviour?

    Some physical predispositions have apparently been tied to Mtdna haplogroups though I'm unsure how tight the correlations are. I imagine there could be something similar with Y-dna. In terms of behavior/psychology I'd imagine less so but possible. And with looks... very slightly I think, but...

    R1b-U152/S28 : more Gaulish or Roman ?

    Z56 has gained more testers in North Italy, especially in the Northwest since the days of Maciamo's maps/trees, mostly in Liguria, Piedmont, and Western Lombardia. Doesn't seem altogether absent from parts of France either, but when it got there (or in Italy, for that matter) is another matter.

    DNA study shows Greeks clustering with Africans.

    "Fellows in Civilization" I guess, as opposed to those dirty Northern Barbarians who screwed them over militarily in late antiquity.

    To burn or not to burn: LBA/EIA Balkan case

    "wide nose therefore black" LOL "Exotic" I guess Babe Ruth was black too.

    R1b-U152/S28 : more Gaulish or Roman ?

    The the Proto-Italics moved into Italy and mixed heavily with local women who were of indigenous farmer (EEF) stock. Italy was well populated during the Chalcolithic and Bronze Age compared to other places especially to the North. Proto-Italic people probably practiced the rite of Ver Sacrum in...

    Stable population structure in Europe since the Iron Age, despite high mobility

    A list of Y-dna would be great too, if any kind soul would like to get on that.

    What is origin R1b-S8172?

    That's not the right question to ask really. These haplos pre-date both the formation of "Celtic" and "Roman" peoples. It's descendents could be in both Celtic and Italic plus other peoples. In your case it could be either. There were Celts coming into Iberia and there were Romans later on...

    What is origin R1b-S8172?

    People move around. I think there may have been some Bell Beakers or later Proto-Celts who migrated North. The Rhine, Wesser, Vistula rivers are all waterways to Germanic areas and scandinavia. The Tumulus Culture of Bavaria and Czechia traded and interacted with the Nordic Bronze Age peoples...

    What is origin R1b-S8172?

    There is a relatively strong testing bias for Britain, especially in FTDNA but also genetic testing in general. Many Proto-Celtic and Celtic people migrated to the British Isles throughout the later Bronze through the Iron Age to Roman times. I would think the core of your haplogroup and those...

    What is origin R1b-S8172?

    With a TMRCA of around 1650 bc, it's possible that it's spread may be associated with the Tumulus Culture and/or the Urnfield and Hallstatt Cultures. Contact and movements between the Rhine, Danube, Adriatic and elsewhere for trade purposes seems plausible. Other branches of R1b-U152 and...

    G25 Sea Peoples Calculator by Me

    If we could compare sea people samples to Myceneans, Ancient Greeks, and modern Greeks I think it might increase the resolution of what they were genetically (I think some were from different places) Southern Italians would be good too. I heard that one Philistine sample plotted close to...

    R-L21 fixed in the Isles since EBA

    I've seen that idea discredited in these forums (and on Genarchivist), and that a more likely origin for Bell Beakers is Single Grave Culture. Bell Beakers migrated to spain sometime later but still fairly early (Between 2500 and 2400 BC?) The first Bell Beaker artifacts were found in Spain, if...

    To burn or not to burn: LBA/EIA Balkan case

    It's Cuz the Parisii were named after Paris the Trojan. Trojan Elites were largely Dardani, Mysian, Phrygian etc... all of Daco-Thracian stock and exiled across Europe and different parts since the fall of Troy. Doesn't the modern day Paris-area have high E-V13? Again, I'm joking. But the...

    Ancestry and kinship in a Late Antiquity-Early Middle Ages cemetery in the EasternItalian Alps

    Snorri Sturlesson was right about Odin and Thorr being from Troy... (just kidding) Though seriously these E-V13 and J2b-L283s really got around since the Urnfield period.

    What were haplogroups of Middle Earth peoples if they real?

    My take: Y-dna Numenoreans and Westron mannish peoples being mostly R1b. Rohirrim mostly R1a (Scytho-Cimmerian-like) Gondorians a mix of R1b (mainly ZZ11) and J2b-L283 Eriador men mainly R1b-L21 Mirkwood/Woodmen mainly R1b-U106 Dunlendings mostly a mix of these latter two. Hobbits I2 Elves...
