    Population changes in northern Italy from the Iron Age to Modern Times

    France, Iberia and parts of Northern Italy speak Romance languages today because of the Roman Empire. I'd say that's pretty meaningful. The only issue I see is that some labs and researchers still lag behind the aDNA findings and don't seem to realise (yet) that the "partly-Near Eastern admixed...

    The Picenes and the Genetic Landscape of Central Adriatic Italy in the Iron Age.

    The wording changed because this version of the paper doesn't include Imperial Roman period samples, compared to the earlier abstract.

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

    One of the Olalde et al samples from Viminacium is close to Napoleon's branch, he has a Western Anatolian profile.

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

    Ok sure I was wrong about Churchill's paternal surname. Napoleon is still E-M34 though

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

    As for Churchill, most males with that surname belong to an I1 branch (I-S1954), I'm not sure where the E-V13 rumour came from.

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

    Are we still talking about Napoleon? Wasn't his paternal ancestry Italian?

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

    Napoleon is E-M34 and he belongs to this branch: https://www.yfull.com/tree/E-Y58897/ https://discover.familytreedna.com/y-dna/E-BY36878/tree which isn't Jewish

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

    If you Ctrl + F for "Grant" in the peer-reviewed paper that recently came out, you'll see that this Grant fella isn't peer-reviewed and many of his theories are heavily disputed.

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

    Not sure why people expect J2b or E-V13, we already have plausible Macedonian (Paeonian? Brygian?) and Doric-related samples and none of them belong to these haplogroups.

    Preview: Upcoming Ancient Greek Transect (Mesolithic to Medieval) from Biomuse.

    Proto-Greeks didn't have Corded Ware ancestry and they didn't come to Greece as unadmixed Yamnaya migrants (which is what Lazaridis proposed in 2022). The analyses of the Aegean paper are also lackluster (not entirely their fault). Based on the genetic data we have so far, the most likely...

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

    I-CTS10228 is almost certainly native to eastern Europe and has nothing to do with Suevi or Celts. I-CTS4002 (the parent node) has a BA sample from Romania and I-S19848 (the grandparent node) has a sample from BA Bulgaria, this is before these ethnic groups existed. As for the rest, we will see...

    R-L21 in Ireland not from the Bronze Age?

    It's just founder effects, nothing to do with selection. There's nothing special about L21 as opposed to the myriad other Y chromosome founder effects we've seen in global populations. It's just been over-analysed to death because Anglo-Americans + Irish-Americans are the largest testing cohort...

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

    The rumour about "elite Mycenaean R-Z2103" comes from a comment made by Davidski a few years ago and he referred to the site of Mycenae itself, not the Argolid in general. There's no other source about this sample (that I'm aware of), so haplotree.info added this based on Davidski's comment...

    The Genetic Legacy of the Roman Imperial Rule in northern Italy

    Modern Y DNA distributions don't correlate 1:1 with past admixtures because in the meantime you can have founder effects, further gene flow from neighbouring regions who are autosomally similar but might have a different Y structure, etc. On the Germanic question, one explanation could simply...

    The Genetic Legacy of the Roman Imperial Rule in northern Italy

    Can you cite a few of those texts other than the well-known excerpt from Juvenal's Satires? It's normal and expected that there would be different views on this issue in Ancient Rome, but Juvenal's piece is the only one I keep seeing. There's also this excerpt from Martial's Epigrams: XXX. TO...

    South Albania Tumulus DNA samples

    It's cool that there are Hallstatt cultural influences in Attica but that doesn't mean anything about genetics because it's been known for a long time that Celts traded with Italians and Greeks. If they start finding samples with an Austria_IA or even Slovenia_IA autosomal profile in ancient...
