    K12b Analyzing the Mediterranean Cluster C6 from Antonio M et al. 2019

    You might want to check with the Venosa samples (which do have quite some J2b L283), I have some kind of hand-waving theory that those samples are probably Byzantines derived. In the historical context, Venosa was on the boundary of byzantine influence (the goths ruled it only in 555 i think)...

    Was E-V13 a major lineage of Hallstatt Celts and Italics?

    Dear Maciamo, following Ralph&Coop paper, it is noticable a huge IBD peak for Albanians at the fall of the Roman empire. The authors interpret it as a near extinction event. In my opinion only few illyrian clans survived,the very isolated ones. So almost by definition in Albanians can survive...

    K15 Post your aDNA K15 map!

    We are almost identical. Angela was mentioning that Albanians are just east-shifted Tuscans, and it sounds right. I was checking the calculators on Gedmatch in combination with Oracle. I found out that the one with the smallest reported error is puntDNAL K15, probably because it has...

    Personality Myers-Briggs 16 personalities test

    I am pretty bad at keeping secrets and, same as you, people can pinpoint quickly if I am in a good/bad day. The morning is where the mood of my day is decided. If I have the time to do things with calm, maybe watch some Tom & Jerry cartoons, then I will be happy all day long. But, if the alarm...

    Heredity Heritability of Cognitive Empathy

    Had a good laugh - The last author was: S. Baron-Cohen. (Did not know that BORAT was studying himself) Namely the paper sounded like BORAT'S HEREDITY. Turned out that there was some truth to it. The author of the paper Simon B-C turned out to be a cousin of Sasha Baron-Cohen (Borat's actor)...

    Putting an end to Greek/Albanian feuds

    None is saying that you should have Arvanite ancestors, just that Arvanites culture is part of the modern Hellenic culture and as such you are indirectly influenced by it. What I mean that you are prod of the fustanella too (dont know the word in Greek). Maybe I am wrong. Yes things are...

    1. Thank you for the acceptance. No I don't care about a letter. And you are right, the correct English version is Arvanites. 2. Yes Arvanites are Greek (Hellenic if you prefer) - no doubt, we are talking of centuries. Similarly, the Arberesh in Italy are Italian - no doubt. Am I wrong to...
