Basically it seems like they used hunting in the mountains as a backbone when there were no crops to feed on

    So if we look Paternal haplogroups in europe during the neolitic which would we associate with herding, crop farming, hunter gatherers, ranching, nomadic or sedantary farmers, poultry, and fishing. Basically which haplogroups do we associate with these lifestyles in neolitic euroupe

    this is a very interesting discovery. what reason is behind such survival strategy ? for self protection using natural barriers like mountains , or islands surrounded by water ? less accessible for others to come ? trying to stay away from 'something"?

I don't think that it is just a coincidence.
