    Ancestrydna Caucasus Dna in Italy/Greece natives

    Hello there, I'm quite curious. I noticed on Ancestrydna that 47% of Italy/Greek natives have the Caucasus Admixure while only 10% of the Caucasus natives have Italy/Greek DNA, I was wondering why that is.

    Was there a mass migration into the Mediteranian from the Caucasus Region sometime in history besides the Maykop Culture?

    Thanks :)

    You got it. :)
    Be wary of people who tend to glorify the past, underestimate the present, and demonize the future.

    Caucasians are basically Neolitich farmers mixed with North Asian hunther gatherers.

    They share the Neolitich Levantine component with Southern and South Eastern Europeans, but of course Caucasians have a lot more and cluster with Northern Middle Easterners like Iranians, Assyrians and Kurds.
