    The suggestion that the Corded Ware of 3rd millennium BC Europe is derived from earlier cord marked pottery in East Asia is intriguing. The world's earliest pottery was found in southern China, including cord marked pottery from about 13,000 BC. Jomon cord marked pottery dates from about 11,000 BC and Jomon aDNA shows affinity with the aboriginal Taiwanese, suggesting a coastal migration of people and pots from southern China to Japan, and further on to eastern Siberia (the Amur basin and Baikalia).

    The earliest pottery in Taiwan, associated with proto-Austronesian speakers, was also cord marked. By about 1000 BC Austronesian speakers from Taiwan had spread Lapita pottery as far as Western Polynesia (Tonga and Samoa).

    Pottery was invented independently more than once (in the Americas and West Asia for instance), but perhaps the idea of decorating pottery with cord marks was invented only once and the idea and the practice spread from the Pacific to the North Sea over several millennia.

    I think it is b/c of WSHG mobility. looks like they migrated whole Eurasia. I think Nostratic theory seems to be related with the WSHG migration. EHG R1a also have neolithic baikal admixture with mtDNA C, being buried in east eurasian type (supine) with lake baikal pottery. EHG R1b also have the baikal admixture. Sredny stog culture has millet originated in china. In neolithic yangshao, west eurasian flexed burial and Cucuteni-Trypilla style pottery were found. see whether WSHG was in Sumer. Lots of archaeologists suggested that all civilizations in old and new world have some similarity.


    ^ the decoration engraved on the wall of one of these granary "shrines" in Cucuteni–Trypillia culture : yin and yang?

    I don't know, but looks like dao(ism) and dual(ism) or duo have a same PIE root.

    [Ernest Mackay, who published the mask from Harappa
    and the “priest” figure from Mohenjo-daro, pointed out
    that they in no way correspond to the local small plastic art
    traditions and held them as imports. Of the Harappan
    terracottas proper, a minutely developed canon is
    characteristic: these are female statuettes with luxuriant
    locks and round eyes rendered with appliqués or pits.
    Against such a background, the maskoids and “priests” are
    noteworthy precisely because of their peculiarity.
    According to Mackay, these statuettes are of a distinctly
    Mongoloid appearance and differ sharply in their facial
    type from the ordinary examples. They were retrieved from
    one of the lowest strata of the city and suggest that its
    population may have had an admixture of Mongoloid blood
    introduced, possibly, by newcomers from the North-West,
    or perhaps from the Iranian Plateau where, during
    excavations in Tepe Hissar, several very ancient Mongoloid
    skulls were found (Mackay 1951:133)]
