    New map of mtDNA haplogroup K

    I have revised all the mtDNA frequencies and added 20 new populations. This now permits me to create mtDNA maps. Ideally I would need more detailed regional data for central and southern Spain, all Germany, Ukraine and European Russia (except the Caucasus, which is well covered). I have got...

    Two major new papers on Early Neolithic to Early Bronze Age mtDNA in Central Europe

    Brandt et al. analysed 364 ancient mtDNA samples from the Early Neolithic (Linear Pottery culture) to the Early Bronze Age (Unetice culture), mostly around Germany, Bohemia and Poland. I believe that this is the largest study on ancient mtDNA to date. Although the article is behind a paywall...

    New distribution map of Y-DNA haplogroup E-V13

    After E-M81, here is the map of the E-V13 subclade. The distribution of the two haplogroups don't match at all, except in Iberia. E-V13 is clearly linked to the Thessalian Neolithic and its offshoots, such as the Linear Pottery (LBK) culture. It was also part of the Cardium Pottery Culture, as...

    Neolithic Celts and Germanics

    Hello there, I've been roughly mapping my genetic profile and I was wondering. Does anyone know how the Neolithic cultures bearing E1b1b, G2a, J, T and (I2?) made it into Celtic and Germanic territory and what their names are or is the answer still a mystery? Thanks :)

    I2a-Din came to the Balkans and Dinaric Alps with the Thracians, Dacians & Illyrians

    I2a-Din came to the Balkans and Dinaric Alps with the Thracians, Dacians & Illyrians I have given more thought about the origin of I2a-Din (L621>L147.2) and came to the following conclusion. During the Mesolithic the I2a1 (P37.2) hunter-gatherers must have occupied a vast part of western...

    Any information about Y-DNA subclade G2a5 (origin/distribution)?

    While browsing through my 23andme distant DNA relatives (as well as DNA relatives of friends who have taken the test) I have noticed that Haplogroup G2a5 is very common among Cypriots. Actually around 15% of 35 Cypriot individuals were G2a5. I found this extremely interesting as from what I have...

    Is the high Jewish frequency of hg G representative of the pre-Arabic Levant ?

    There is little doubt now that haplogroup G was one of the main lineages of the people who spread agriculture from the Levant to the Middle East and Europe. Early farming arose in the Levant, and the highest genetic diversity for haplogroup G is also found in the Levant. The odd thing is that hg...

    New map of Haplogroups E1b1b + G + J + T

    Here is the third and final map in my new series designed to show the three major components of the European population. The first map, representing all subclades of Haplogroup I, i.e. the lineages descended from the Palaeolithic and Mesolithic inhabitants of Europe. The second combined...

    Neolithic farmers: Southwest Europeans or West Asians ?

    Dienekes ran the fragments of autosomal DNA recovered from a Neolithic farmer buried in Sweden (dated 4800 to 4000 years before present). The results came up like this: Euro7 - 61.5% Northwestern European (Atlantic) - 21.4% Southeastern European - 17.1% Southwestern European 0% for the four...

    G2a and E-V13 in Neolithic Spain (5000 BCE)

    Lacan et al., who tested the Neolithic site of Treilles in Southwest France (G2a + I2a) published a new study on Neolithic Spain. The samples are 2000 years older than in Treilles, and identified both G2a and E-V13. This could either confirm a Neolithic origin of E-V13 or, my recent proposal...
