    Genetic study The Genetic Origin of the Indo-Europeans

    Finally, after 10 years, Celine Bon found the time to publish the 2 Mentesh tepe samples the French had. But there are two another earlier papers that used the samples and all the hints were already in there. - It was just nerve wrecking!

    Genetic study The Genetic Origin of the Indo-Europeans

    Just adding a point: the paper uses Aknashen which is very early Shulaveri. Has they use Mentesh tepe (prob the french didn't allow them) and it would be even closer because there would be more CHG, since they were admixing with remaining CHG pop near the mountains. When we get later...

    Genetic study The Genetic Origin of the Indo-Europeans

    Yes, consistently J2B :) -- My hopes of finding L23 vanished long ago. But Mtdna is seen in Northern Caucasus, H2+152, H15a, I1.

    Genetic study The Genetic Origin of the Indo-Europeans

    Just because it’s helpful to just state it again and again! - PIE was the language of the Shulaveri-Shomu. From honey to plough to horses, they had everything. Actually, first culture that diverged a river and invented wine! It does not matter if they call it South Caucasus, or Armenia or...

    Genetic study The Genetic Origin of the Indo-Europeans

    Will there be acknowledge that I was right all along?! So much blablabla for so many years… and in the end, it was the Shulaveri-Shomu all along, weren’t they? And I have described the route, when and how - It took harvard, Reich and Anthony 8 years to get there?!?! CLV is the Harvardian talk...

    Shulaveri and Haji Firuz

    To keep drumming the Shulaveri at a time when we are so close… I figure Haji Firuz R1b Z2103 will turn up one of these days as dated and confirmed. I immediately noted when it came out that the two places where WINE production have been attested has been precisely in Shulaveri and Haji Firuz...

    Boian Culture (4500bc) - Shulaveri descendents?

    Boian… Yes, Boian! So, what happen to the Shulaverians (Shulaveri-Shomu) moving West? We know that the ones fleeing to the passages into Kuban river became Svobodnoe, Mesokho, etc. Lets make another digital connection never done before. I had already said that the Kumtepe girl (KUM6) was a...

    Reich and Krause in the same boat

    Some blogs (yes, that one) are getting their heads around it: As per latest Reich book, he thinks PIE was in South Caucasus. Like Johannes Krause had also shown last year as his believe . I am sure in time “everybody already knew”. Even steppe fanatics. Let me state again, for future memory...

    Eurogenes New map of Yamna admixture (Eurogenes Steppe K10)

    YES. What I don’t get it is why every time I raise those options I get immediately eviscerated by ten guys (especially at eurogenes!). Maybe you Angela can enlighten me a little bit. If Karelia was EHG (and already R1a). If there is SHG which is a mix of EHG and WHG, if apparently there is...

    Are NonMetric Dental Traits a good proxy for aDna?

    My Opinion is yes. aDna is sexy and has a lot of “Bang” but at a very expensive “buck”. Nm dental traits are not really subject on environmental conditions like some skeleton an Crania monuments. Pretty much a genetic marker. Reading papers such as “Do nuclear DNA and dental nonmetric data...
