    Genetic history of Calabrian Greeks reveals ancient events and long term isolation in

    Genetic history of Calabrian Greeks reveals ancient events and long term isolation in the Aspromonte area of Southern Italy

    Abstract
    Calabrian Greeks are an enigmatic population that have preserved and evolved a unique variety of language, Greco, survived in the isolated Aspromonte mountain area of Southern Italy. To understand their genetic ancestry and explore possible effects of geographic and cultural isolation, we genome-wide genotyped a large set of South Italian samples including both communities that still speak Greco nowadays and those that lost the use of this language earlier in time. Comparisons with modern and ancient populations highlighted ancient, long-lasting genetic links with Eastern Mediterranean and Caucasian/Near-Eastern groups as ancestral sources of Southern Italians. Our results suggest that the Aspromonte communities might be interpreted as genetically drifted remnants that departed from such ancient genetic background as a consequence of long-term isolation. Specific patterns of population structuring and higher levels of genetic drift were indeed observed in these populations, reflecting geographic isolation amplified by cultural differences in the groups that still conserve the Greco language. Isolation and drift also affected the current genetic differentiation at specific gene pathways, prompting for future genome-wide association studies aimed at exploring trait-related loci that have drifted up in frequency in these isolated groups.

    Indeed, most important.:)

    Another good Sarno and Boattini paper. Fascinating tree.

    So, Southern Italians can be modelled as a simple two way combination of Anatolian farmer and Caucasus Hunter-Gatherer.

    Just wish I could post the tree.

    Yes
    Cool research
    You can show it to you calabrian husband

    P.s
    I know it is autosomal research but i wish
    There they anlaysed the samples for y snp markers
    Isolated communities are fascinating
    And because of drift can show surprising results

    Well, I can tell you that in my husband's paternal villages there's a lot of G2a (his yDna) and the eastern R1a, plus a lot of J2a, so I would think Greece or Anatolia, unless the G2a is REALLY old.

    This is from a yDna project for Reggio Calabria. There's certainly E as well, a lot of it just labeled E-M35. How and when it arrived I have no idea, and a lot of these people didn't really get detailed testing done, as I'm sure I don't need to tell you, which makes it difficult to make educated guesses. There's quite a bit of R-M269 as well as some I. Of course, this isn't a random sample.

    There are three Panetta's, like our American politician, all forms of R.

    There's one Bova, who is E-M35. I'd guess E-V13, but who knows.

    A few family surnames have different yDna. It just goes to show you can't be sure just by surname.

    Finally my husband may be interested in something from my hobby. He, like Raoul Bova, has some ancestry from that Greek speaking region in Reggio Calabria, and the rest of his ancestry comes from the area directly east of it still in Reggio Calabria, where they were speaking Greek until way past the Middle Ages. The ancestral villages of two out of his four grandparents come from an area where people fled the coast during Moorish raids to build new villages in the mountains. That coastal town was renowned during Magna Graecia. One other grandparent came from that more isolated region.

    The most interesting thing for me will be finding out how long they've been isolated in the Aspromonte Mountains. To when does their original admixture date? Could it possibly be late Bronze Age, or maybe early Iron Age after Greek migration started? When?

    They've certainly drifted a lot in the inner mountains.

    Iranian-like ancestry spread to Sardinia in the Bronze-age:

    I'd imagine much of it coming to the central Mediterranean region is from this time period.

    I would not swear to the accuracy of Iran_N's percentages in this paper. One has to see what reference ancient samples she exactly used.

    I've checked in the supp info. For example as reference samples to represent Steppe she did not use the usual Yamanya Samara only, but threw in as reference samples also individuals from Potapovka, Afanasievo etc...

    Unfortunately, in the analyzes there are none of the southern European populations genetically close to the Italians, so we cannot have any comparison.

    More WHG in Sardinians is not strange, it has always been so. What is strange is Iran_N being inflated everywhere.

    The Sardinians, particularly the HGDP sample, has long been modelled as 85% EEF and 15% WHG. When no one in northern Italy, as I remember, has ever reached 15+% WHG. Now how Sardinians can reach 15% of Iran_N is quite strange.

    Fernandes et al 2020 seems to model Sardinians similarly to the paper, however. In fact, Sardinians seem to have more Iran_N in the Fernandes paper.:

    Interesting
    How much whg % do spaniards( non basque) have ?
    Also significant like sardinian ?

    If you take a look at the Z-axis on this 3D-PCA, you can see it matches the CHG/IN cline.

    You guys have already said what I was willing to say: results should not be taken too literally, and they must be discussed and interpreted (which we've been doing here). Taken together, and compared to others, they may provide good clues on ancient movements, as we all know.

    @Jovialis
    As a general rule, professionals should be taken more seriously, of course.

    I found the time to revisit those p-values. I missed something, indeed.
    In this case, the higher the p-value the better. Ok then. What I don't understand now is why they used a threshold of 0.01 rather than 0.05, as for example Lazaridis et al. did here and here. Well, details...

    At the end they must have used Barcin (predominant in EEF) rather than Tepecik (possibly predominant in ABA). So it'd be supposedly the opposite: Tepecik could have resulted in even better fits for Calabrians (?).

    @Pax
    Yes, I know. IIRC, we discussed it in a thread regarding Caucasus. Even Barcin itself would have a bit of Natufian, and Tepecik would have more, while PPNB would have something about 40% of ANF, if I'm not mistaken. Adding Natufian and eliminating PPNB could result in part of the former going to Anatolian, indeed; however, as Natufian is so old, this extra Natufian should correspond to some actual Levant Neo-like ancestry in that context, I believe, and Levant Neo (as well as Levant BA) did have Anatolian Neo after all. That's why I preferred PPNB, expecting that the tool would accommodate the extra Natufian into the correspondent pop of Levant in the timeframe chosen.
    Of course, there would be different ways of estimating "Levantine(-like)" ancestry, from more recent pops to more ancient ones. As you know, shared ancestry is frequently an issue, especially when we use more recent pops as sources.
    Apparently one way to estimate/isolate Natufian-like ancestry would be using it with AHG, CHG/Iran Meso etc., but this is another story.

    In Sardinia it could also be Phoenician, so Iron Age... But in Northern Italy?

    I published a thread on a book called "Northern Italy in the Roman World". It can be found through the search engine. I think it's essential reading for anyone interested in this topic as it covers Northern Italy from the Bronze Age to the Gothic Wars.

    One of the points it makes is that starting very early Rome established colonies in Northern Italy. It was a part of Romanization. In my own area the colony was Luni. There were also the colonies along the Po and further north. There are many schematics which show where they were located. Indeed, there's an interactive site dedicated to the location of Roman colonies.

    There was also movement north from Southern Italy I believe as one of the Republican Era Roman samples shows a great deal of Greek/Aegean Sea ancestry.

    As for why Northern Italy has less WHG than Sardinia, it probably has a great deal to do with the fact that it was diluted by the steppe ancestry which started arriving with the Italics. Some of the Republican Era Roman samples have more WHG than modern North Italians.

    Wow, very interesting paper ! Thanks for posting kingjohn.

    I am very surprised, Northern Italy has more Iran Neo than Sardinia. I am not an expert on Italy but can someone explain the difference. I think for North Italy there is a little too much Iran Neo.
