    Phenotypes of the Portuguese

    Sincerely, for other Europeans, Portugueses are among the darkest pigmented and most often dark pigmented people of Europe. As a whole I see only Cypriots coming darker - sure some European regions are as dark or darker, I think in Sardinia by instance - Spain has some districts of dark people...

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

    My calculation was just to provide some scale of impact with 20%, say in first place concerning WHG. Sure, theory is not reality. Agree with you.

    Red Hair very common in Eastern European?

    @Melkiirs - I ‘ll try to answer you. - I am an amateur, and I observed on life (common people) and on pictures (sportmen, for the most, more than a picture for a person, preferably on collective pics) - - my ‘scale’ is y my eye, I regreat I never had the Fisher’s and others scales to compare...

    Red Hair very common in Eastern European?

    I doubt attractivity of red hairs would be the principal cause of red hairs in Ireland - a time has been when ancient Celts considered that the red haired people had already liven 2 lifes and had then their last chance! today Irish and British people don't consider too well the red haired...

    Red Hair very common in Eastern European?

    France is changing fast. But rural France of the 1970's was still contrasted enough concerning pigmentation, and just a bit lighter than Slovenia as a national mean (very little indeed!). It's true that Slovenia is the lightest new state of ancient Yougoslavia, with some parts of northern...

    These pseudo geographic namings are kind of mental projection of PCA on a map. It isn't the arbitrary projection of position of ancient pop's PCA's on a map (what meaning BTW?) but rather the position of the modern pop's rich for these components (pur ones or a mix for 'steppe' (but the HG part...

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

    'Steppe' is rather "northeastern" - and 'WHG' rather "northwestern" - this partial trend towards "north" for WHG is explained by the fact that in today pop's this component is the strongest among Balts and then among Scandinavians, roughly said. apart: I maid a simplified but arithmetically...

    I doubt you read all that in scientific works! That said I agree with you the I-E were not the founders of every civilisation. Who says that?

    What is your problem? Some complex? Or a vision of History as only a boxing or rugby match? Sorry, I try to understand the tone of your posts?

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

    What is your reasoning here? I dont say Italics came from Balkans but they stayed long enough time around parts of Pannonia and today Croatia. ATW it's complicated and some scholars think Osco-Umbrians and Latino-Faliscan tribes were separated at some stage of their maturation by Venetics (mabe...

    Completely agree with your observations about Venetic and Illyrian, I said that myself. It's true that a confusion had arose about the value of the Roman labelling of "Illyrian". I never said there was a direct lnguistic and final ethnic link between Italics and Illyrians. I suggered these...

    What is the posited %'s of steppe, WHG and EEF among first Longobards? - My %'s are from scientists works, not from amateurish calculations. - I don't know the exact %'s of this kind of admixture in pre-Italic Toscana. The numbers given for IA Italics and Etruscans vary between say 37%-24%...

    So your big distinctive trait would be heavier EEF (parallelic to lighter WHG)? It's true that La Tène of Champagne (400/300 BC) were around 42 % 'steppe' for 44,5% EEF.... Now, on another side the IA tumuli of Slovenia Dolge Nijve (700/650BC?) had around 32% 'steppe' and 58% EEF (poor for WHG...

    The question is the First Celts were (I think) more 'northern' than theLaTène ones! More on the Germany BB means of auDNA. But even the IA Celts of the Marsilia region were 'northern' and 'steppe' enough (7: Steppic: 37% - WHG: 13% - EEF: 50%)

    It's very possible that Celts of any sort have been expelled by the Roman state later but I doubt they have'nt left some remnants in the N-Italy genomic pole, even if this contrbution has been strongly lightened. And I doubt there have not been some slight introgressions later of other central...

    That said, the flashing reds left aside, it remains in a pop other seriously reddish hues that can push the % from 1%-1,5% to 4%-5%... in the same pop.

    Origin of Red Hair in Jewish Populations?

    Melkiirs [ Weak 'r' variants are naturally not included as they are actually negatively correlated with red hair due to lowering chances of carrying multiple R varaints compared to the general population. ] Here I don't understand very well. Maybe I'm wrong but I thought the 'r' variant marked...
