    Origin of R1b

    The oldest R1b samples are all from Europe, the oldest/only R* sample is from Siberia, and R1b is absent in samples from the Middle East before the Bronze Age. But the Eupedia R1b page claims that R1b originated in the Middle East. Is this still a plausible theory?

    I think R1b occurred in West Asia, Especially West Iran. also R1a is occurred in West Iran.

    What's the evidence for this?

    The point of origin of R1b is thought to lie in Western Eurasia, most likely in Western Asia.[34] R1b is a subclade within the "macro-haplogroup" K (M9), the most common group of human male lines outside of Africa. K is believed to have originated in Asia (as is the case with an even earlier ancestral haplogroup, F (F-M89). Karafet T. et al. (2014) "rapid diversification process of K-M526 likely occurred in Southeast Asia, with subsequent westward expansions of the ancestors of haplogroups R and Q".[35]

    that's not based on ancient DNA evidence, it's a theory or speculation based on some modern samples and assumptions. The ancient DNA evidence doesn't support that view.
