    Y DNA I (I1,I2) and sheep herding - speculation



    Hello

    Did anyone tried to make a study about ancient sheep herding and populations with more I1 or I2?
    What I know is that all populations from Balkans with more I2 and Romanians have sheep herding traditional.
    Sardinians, which also have an I2a branch as most common paternal line have sheep herding as traditional.
    Scandinians/vikings also had sheep herding traditional.
    According to Maciamo study, I came to Europe around 45k years ago from Middle East.

    well, when EEF (mainly G2a2) arrived in Europe, they got gradually more admixed with WHG (I2)
    WHG being HG, I'd expect them more to become herders rather then farmers
    but all that is 7000 years ago, you wouldn't notice any of that today any more
