Correction of previous post: "I would [not] place much trust..."
Carleton Coon supports the theory that modern Europeans are of dual origins, consisting of Upper Paleolithic (mixture of Sapiens and Neanderthals) types and Mediterranean (purely Sapiens) types.
In his s book The Races of Europe, studying the population of Fehmarn Island, at the border of Germany and Denmark, he says :
The Neandertal genome has been sequenced. It is COMPLETELY different from that of Homo sapiens, including the European varieties.
What matters is if they can find some identifiable neandertal gene in moderns, which has not yet occurred.
Hello to all
I believe strongly in neanderthal origins of europeans. Another fact is that we find brachycephal neanderthals exactly where today live dinaric people (Brachycephal); the only brachycephalic neanderthals are those of Crapina and Vindija caves in Croatia.
Others were dolichocephalic, as are the people of the same places today.
And I should like to know your opinion about linking of neanderthals with certain haplogroups.
I think haplogroups C D and E (without african subclade), are linked to neanderthals.
Because, the haplogroup D is linked to chinesse paleolithics who were caucasians as are today their descendants Ainu people, who are also with haplogroup D.
Three centers of Blood Group A, are Europe, Australia and North America. The two last are with high frequency of haplogroup C. Europe could have been with haplogroup E in that time.
After the arrival of Sapiens, Neanderthals would have been refugees to forests of Balkan and Iberia. In Balkan still today remain the haplogroup E-V13, and in Iberia we find the last Neanderthals together with hybrid in Portugalia.
After that, Neanderthals could migrate to North Africa, where we can find Berbers with haplogroup E-M78, which have a high frequency of Blonde hairs and fair eyes.
Thanx for answers.
And one question for you (or others), about haplogroups:
Is it possible, that some haplogroups (Y or mtdna) are not with same ancestry, but just share dhe same mutation, which is created as a coincidence in two populations??
If it is possible, maybe we can find neanderthal haplogroups.
