    CHG-Like Ancestry on Steppe since Mesolithic

    Just one example, without CHG-Satsurblia all went to Dzudzuana. Also it wasnt a surprise, considering Meshoko Meso DNA already was almost identical to Kotias, meaning that Dzudzuana-Rich DNA was found on Steppe before Neolithic. Keep in mind that CHG-Like pops were a mixture between ANE and...

    Southern Ancestry in "Steppe"

    We know from various studies that Yamnaya/Corded ware and Eneolithic Steppe(Progress/Vonyuchka) have a significant amount of southern ancestry, right now called CHG or CHG/Iran but we still don't know where it is exactly from. There are many suggestions, I try to summarize the two main...

    Diverse genetic origins of medieval steppe nomad conquerors

    Abstract Over millennia, steppe nomadic tribes raided and sometimes overran settled Eurasian civilizations. Most polities formed by steppe nomads were ephemeral, making it difficult to ascertain their genetic roots or what present-day populations, if any, have descended from them...

    Eurogenes New map of Yamna admixture (Eurogenes Steppe K10)

    I finally found some time to make the map of Yamna admixture using the data from Eurogenes Steppe K10. There was no data for some countries, so I had to guess based on neighbouring countries or isolated samples reported on forums. That is the case for Portugal, Ireland, Wales, the Netherlands...

    Was the teal admixture of Yamna brought to the steppe by Y-haplogroup G1 ?

    Last week Davidski wondered if the teal people really existed and if so who they were (referring to the teal admixture from Haak et al. 2015 found in Yamna samples). My theory so far had been that R1b-P297 had mixed with West Asian people around the South Caucasus (or rather between East...

    Did the Chinese Bronze Age originate in the Eurasian Steppe ?

    The Bronze Age appears to have originated around the Caucasus circa 3500 BCE, with the Maykop culture (3700—2000 BCE) and the approximately contemporaneous Kura-Araxes culture (3500—2200 BCE). Older Bronze objects have been found in Serbia dating from 4500 BCE, but the practice was discontinued...
