    Could the Barbary Slave Trade Explain European mtDNA Haplogroups in North Africa

    Could the mtDNA haplougroups found in North Africa and parts of South Africa be a surviving remnant of the Barbary Slave Trade?

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

    Robert Davis, a professor of history at Ohio State Univeristy, said that between one million and 1.25 million European slaves were taking to North Africa between 1530 and 1780.

    Is there a link to the study of mesolithic remains that have Eurasian haplogroups?

    There is the ancient DNa section here at Eupedia, but it doesn't include non-european remains, like the north-african ones. In Morocco there is 12,000 ybp Mesolithic mtDNA from 21 samples :

    H/V/U=12 57%, H=4 19%, H/V=3 14%, V=2 9.5%
