Look at the autosomal admixture models of modern Egyptians compared to Nakht-ankh an ancient Egyptian mummy from 1879 BC, Middle Kingdom central Egypt.

The Tomb of Two Brothers is an ancient sepulchre in Deir Rifeh, Egypt. It contains the chamber tomb of the ancient Egyptian high status priests Nakht-Ankh and Khnum-Nakht, which dates from the 12th Dynasty.

Modern Copts seem to have almost identical Neolithic admix to the Central Egypt, Middle Kingdom, 1879bc mummy. They are almost the same as the Late Kingdom sample from North Egypt but with the difference that they have more African admix. It makes sense that North Egypt would have less African admix than Central and Southern Egypt.

The coordinates of Nakht-Ankh are converted from K13 to G25. The mummy is from Central Egypt. People on anthrogenica downloaded the raw DNA data from a study and they converted them to a form that is usable on gedmatch.

I’m surprised this thread is not loaded with comments given the significance of such a result.
 
This mummy seems Egyptian before everything else! Not so far from current Egyptian pops if I rely on the analysis. Aready some Caucasus/Iran input and Anatolian input, strong Natufian one, and very few western influences (Ibero-Maurisian and Yoruba-like SSA ancestries). Not very southern for this region, by the fact.
 
Could someone run the sample through Dodecad k12b and provide coords
 
Bump im also surprised by how little activity here
 
We've known this, with a few tweaks, from academic papers for a long time.
