    R1b-L21 (S145) in Slovenia and Sicily?

    Having had a look over the Haplogroup maps I thought it was strange to note the 1-5% occurance of R1b-L21 in what appears to be Slovenia. Anyone know why this could be? Also, what about the reasonable occurance in Sicily?

    no clue about Sicily, but regarding Slovenia it could be about previous settlers being Celtic Taurisci...

    The Taurisci were a federation of Celtic tribes who dwelt in today's northern Slovenia (Carniola) before the coming of theRomans (c. 200 BC)[1] According to Pliny the Elder, they are the same people known as the Norici.[2][3] The denotation probably stems from Celtictaur meaning "mountain", like in Tauern, and therefore may also refer to highlanders in general.


    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taurisci



    The rest of the country as far as Segestica,9 and the Danube, towards the north and east, is occupied by Pannonii, but they extend farther in an opposite direction. The city Segestica, belonging to the Pannonii, is situated at the confluence of several rivers, all of which are navigable. It is in a convenient situation for carrying on war against the Daci, for it lies at the foot of the Alps, which extend to the Iapodes,10 a mixed Keltic and Illyrian tribe. Thence also flow the rivers by which is conveyed to Segestica a great quantity of merchandise, and among the rest, commodities from Italy. The distance from Aquileia to Nauportus,11 a settlement of the Taurisci, across the mountain Ocra,12 is 350, or, according to some writers, 500 stadia. Merchandise is transported to Nauportus in waggons. The Ocra is the lowest part of the Alps, which extend from Rhætica to the Iapodes, where the mountains rise again, and are called Albii. From Tergeste,13 a village of the Carni,14 there is a pass across and through the Ocra to a marsh called Lugeum.15 A river, the Corcoras, flows near Nauportus, and conveys the merchandise from that place. It discharges itself into the Save, and this latter river into the Drave; the Drave again into the Noarus at Segestica. Here the Noarus, having received the Colapis16 as it descends in its full stream from the mountain Albius through the Iapodes, enters the Danube among the Scordisci. The navigation on the rivers is in general towards the north. The journey from Tergeste to the Danube is about 1200 stadia. Near Segestica is Siscia, a strong-hold, and Sirmium, both situated on the road to Italy. [3]
    The Breuci, Andizetii, Ditiones, Peirustæ, Mazæi, Daisitiatæ, whose chief was Baton, and other small obscure communities, which extend to Dalmatia, and almost to the Ardiæi to the south, are Pannonians.


    9 At the confluence of the Kalpa and the Save, afterwards Siscia, now Sizsek.
    10 Occupied the coast of Morlacca from the Gulf of Quarnero to Zara.
    11 According to Pliny, the name of this place is derived from the fable of the ship Argo, which was brought up the Danube and the Save, and thence carried on men's shoulders to the Adriatic. Now Porto Quieto.
    12 To the north of Trieste.
    13 Trieste.
    14 Carniola.
    15 The Czirknitz-See.
    16 The Kuipa.

    Nauportus, settlement of Taurisci, is on the road between Aquilea (area of Trieste) and Emona (modern Ljubljana)

    these numbers could be all purely modern from the mussolini times, as he forced 225000 sicilians into the then italian area of slovenia and croatia, after WWII , these areas where given to yugoslavia and then in the 90s the "italian" populace preferred the more liberated slovenians than the croats ( as well as some returning to italy to migrate OS)

    In regards to taurisci and carni, they are both gaulish tribes moving via switzerland through austria. If they are taurisci then there fellow tribal people in Piedmont ( Taurini) would have the same/similar Hg numbers

    i think that most people who have settled during ww2 were pushed out after liberation. In fact, also many people (Germans and Italians) who lived in areas before ww2 and were of German and italian origin and were collaborating with occupation troops. So I do not think this is imprint of ww2 settlers.

    Taurini lived in north most Italy which is very close to L21 zone if not in it... note that Maciamo's map is approximation and not extremely precise and that Taurini were probably pushed to north and west in initial process of spreading Roman empire..also we do not know whether Taurini were of same genetic origin as Taurisci...they might have just belonged to the same culture.. not to mention that genetic structure of north italy was also heavily changed in times of fall of Roman empire when many germanic tribes pushed out many previous inhabitants and settled there





    and if you look other branch of R1b that some people here also consider Celtic (S28) - it spans much much more south than any known position of Celtic people...it matches more with east Germanic settlements..

    note that Boii didnot stay in Italy they moved out
    so Celtic genetic in Italy can be expected only in north most area (if they didnot move more north and west as they probably did during initial expansion of Roman empire) which matches L21 spread... so L21 matches all last Celt settled area fairly well, while S-28 doesnot






    as for north Sicily it could have been settled during Roman empire...Roman empire would typically have army that origin from one part of empire in far distant parts of it... in that way soldiers were not able to rebel locally based on nationality, and would also prevent that army has compassion for local rebels....... and since Sicily is relatively small area, this could have left imprint of around 5%...

    or e.g. it could have been moved there to make Sicily stronger against invasions of Vandals and Alans from north Africa... or might (though that is much less likely) have come with Alans and Vandals... in fact pay attention to R-s28 in north Africa - R-S28 thast i propose to be east germanic and many here consider Celtic can in north Africa easily be imprint of east Germanic Vandals...although there is also a historical mention of Celts also in Africa in much earlier times...

    It would be necessary to "import" very more Sicilians to bring so a % of R-L21 from Sicilia to N-E-Italy/SLovenia, would it not? and as answers How Yes No to Zanipolo, much of the people moved at the WW2 was sweaped away after

    forget gaulish tribes, ... L21 is celto-germanic, which means Tacitus germanic tribe, L21 in Slovenia is compatible with Pannonia settlement of the Lombards (526-568), in western Sicily it is Lombard/Norman

    Y-DNA R1b L-21 is higher in eastern Sicily than in the western part according to Sarno et al.

    In the study of Sarno et al. who studied well Sicily and mainland south Italy (excluding Campania) the R1b L21 was founded in these cities with these percentages:

    Trapani 0%
    Agrigento 1,22%
    Enna 2,5%
    Ragusa and Siracusa 2,22%
    Catania 3,85%
    Cosenza 0%
    Matera 0%
    Lecce 2,5%

    Some historians have spoken of some english families who moved to south Italy during the norman period, also England was in this period ruled by normans, maybe R1b L-21 arrived in south Italy in that era.
