    Reconstructing the Deep Population History of Central and South America

    I think this is new, although there may be a thread about the pre-print. It's hard for me to keep track of when we had discussed pre-prints months before the actual publication. https://www.cell.com/action/showPdf?pii=S0092-8674%2818%2931380-1 Genome-wide analysis of 49 Central and South...

    Indo-European Language Originated On The Steppe?

    Yes, as with every model you have to take all considerations when drawing broader conclusions. I like the wave because as you say it allows you to look at the languages themselves for a moment, which is very revealing. Trees for some reason, with me at least, seem to confer some sort of...

    Indo-European Language Originated On The Steppe?

    Indo-European Language Originated On The Steppe?

    I think Slavic A is West/South and B is East, but I'm not entirely sure. It's Isogloss 17.

    Indo-European Language Originated On The Steppe?

    I think his point would be to further underscore the unlikelihood of a West Asiatic origin, whether by Pastoralists or not. If, as many theorize, PIE was brought by "R1b cattle herders" from the epicenter of agriculture the language would no doubt already contain a vast breadth of native...

    Indo-European Language Originated On The Steppe?

    Beat a dead horse indeed. The irony. I think the model above might help some people understand. And I encourage everyone to consider horses more scrupulously. Domesticated ones. *EDIT* It occurred to me that I should comment on the wave model I posted. This is an oldy, but a goody. I think...
