I expected higher Metal Age Invader and Hunter-Gatherer because everywhere I read it says that Neolithic farmer admixture is lower in Northern Europeans.
Northwest European: British Isles (mostly Celtic fringe with some English) Continental Germanic (Rhineland and other parts plus Dutch and Swiss) with 1/8th Swede.

I wonder how FTDNA calculates these. The calculators from GEDmatch and others put me at much higher for WSH so I wonder what they mean exactly by "Metal Age Invader" and how it's calculated.
