    New Felsina Etruscan Paper by Zaro et alia 2024

    Recent genetic and linguistic studies show that a region in the northwest of Iran and east of Anatolia was the homeland of Indo-Europeans, for example look at Heggarty et al. 2023, I meant a migration from this region to Italy is not a strange thing.

    New Felsina Etruscan Paper by Zaro et alia 2024

    According to Fernandes et al. (The Arrival of Steppe and Iranian Related Ancestry in the Islands of the Western Mediterranean), "In Sicily, Iranian-related ancestry arrived by the mid-second millennium BC, contemporary to its previously documented spread to the Aegean; and there was large-scale...

    New Felsina Etruscan Paper by Zaro et alia 2024

    You talk about the Graecian colonization of Italy, like the British colonization of India, it doesn't mean a huge migration from Greece to Central Italy, this study doesn't talk about Greek ancestry but Iranian-related ancestry, something which is common between Greek and Italic people, as two...

    The south of Caucasus was the homeland of all IE languages, not just Greek and Italian languages, this study talks about "a close genetic link to ancient Caucasian populations", they certainly know the difference between ancient Caucasian and Greek populations. This thing that ancient Greeks had...

    New Felsina Etruscan Paper by Zaro et alia 2024

    By considering recent studies which show the homeland of Indo-Europeans in the south of Caucasus, like Heggarty et al., Science (2023), I see no reason to talk about these strange theories. Greeks and Italians had a common origin.

    New Felsina Etruscan Paper by Zaro et alia 2024

    Etruscans were not massacred by Romans in the Imperial period, so ancient samples from this period could be still related to Etruscans, unless you prove they were another people. It can be assumed that those Iron Age Etruscans were actually Italic people who adopted Etruscan culture.

    This is in the of abstract of this article in English: "Individuals dated to the Roman Imperial period are genetically distinct from the previous Iron Age samples and show an increased affinity to Iranian-related ancestry accompanied by a close genetic link to ancient Caucasian populations...

    This study says: "gli antenati degli Etruschi, originari della zona dell’attuale Iran, si sarebbero dapprima espansi verso il Caucaso meridionale ed in seguito verso le coste occidentali della Turchia da qui, attraversando il Mediterraneo, avrebbero poi raggiunto l’Italia Centrale intorno a...

    Genetic study The Genetic Origin of the Indo-Europeans

    No, Elamites spoke Elamite language, François Desset says this is Proto-Iranian script, not Linear Elamite: https://www.academia.edu/97964761 Because some of these inscriptions are in Indo-Iranian language, not Elamite. It doesn't matter what you claim, you should prove it. Names of Indo-Iranian...

    Genetic study The Genetic Origin of the Indo-Europeans

    François Desset's work on Linear Elamite inscriptions will be published this year, it will prove that Indo-Iranians definitely lived in Iran in the third millennium BC, hundreds years before the formation of Sintashta culture in the Southern Urals, then we see that those scholars still reject...

    Genetic study The Genetic Origin of the Indo-Europeans

    This sentence: "For over a century, British colonialists pushed the fraudulent Aryan migration theory as a superior racial trope." is from the Indian Express, there is really not a big difference between Nazies and those scientists who say real Aryans/Indo-Iranians were the people of Corded Ware...

    Genetic study The Genetic Origin of the Indo-Europeans

    That racist story is too old, look at new studies, for example Heggarty et al., Science (2023): “Indo-Iranic is an early independent branch in our analyses, with no close relationship to Balto-Slavic (see Box 1 and SM section 7.6.2.1), so that argument in favor of a northern route falls away...

    You are right but Iranian is certainly a sub-branch of Indo-Iranian languages, when we want to talk about the homeland we should consider the major branch.

    Genetic study The Genetic Origin of the Indo-Europeans

    I think this Proto-Indo-Anatolian has been forged by those who don't want to believe that Indo-European languages didn't originate in the steppe, Anatolian languages are as Indo-European as other IE languages.

    Genetic study The Genetic Origin of the Indo-Europeans

    There is no big difference, what we know about the earliest Anatolian language dates back to 1600 BC, this study says Indo-Europeans lived in the South of Caucasus in 4400 BC and then migrated west to Anatolia, so those who are called Proto-Indo-Europeans lived in the South of Caucasus at least...

    Genetic study The Genetic Origin of the Indo-Europeans

    No, Persian is an Indo-Iranian language, historical evidences just show that an Indo-Iranian language existed in Mitanni in the north of Syria and Iraq in the 2nd millennium BC.
