    Why R1b couldn't have been spread around Western Europe by the Bell Beaker people

    This is very true. for my part our observations date from a time when NO men and very few women dyed / bleached their hair. Of course, migrants move inland, so spreading the gene (and dilutiing it too). Something to remember is that these things all took place since the last ice-age meltdown...

    Why R1b couldn't have been spread around Western Europe by the Bell Beaker people

    The term I used "RED haired", applies to red-brunette all the way though to strawberry blonde. This was from an ERA pre-hair dyes. What you see is the red-hair getting gradually lighter as you go North along the west-European atlantic coastlines. Starting very dark almost black, obviously...

    Why R1b couldn't have been spread around Western Europe by the Bell Beaker people

    Because, as I understand it, the R1b has a very large amount of data to back it up, particularly in UK and Ireland. Where the data gets thin then obviously a little less emphasis on it needs to be placed, which is why I talk of broad brush approach, as the data across along a wide track (brush...

    Why R1b couldn't have been spread around Western Europe by the Bell Beaker people

    For the first two points replied to, as I tried to indicate, the data needed to make hard and fast conclusions is very large. So try to use broad brush for what we have and try not to get entrenched hard and fast, without statistical analysis of as much relevant data as can be found or...

    Why R1b couldn't have been spread around Western Europe by the Bell Beaker people

    Any sub-variants (sub-clades) could be repeated at multiple locations / times periods, as they are MUTATIONS from an original R1b, so its best not to get too stuck on hard and fast rules, that you HAVE to be able to follow them around, like a SOLID trail of evidence. Whilst the broad brush...
