The high density (very relative indeed) of an ancient subclade in recent times doesn't tell us where it was the denser in ancient time. Not only for people move, but also because it can show where a relatively not too niverous pop stayed,too tiny to produce a lot of new downstream SNP's. And the % are indicative only if they refer only to the same root (Y-R1b here) and not to the allover Y-haplo's. What isn't to say that the todate "high density" is by force far from the real source region.
goes both ways.
I have graves older than some of their theories.. I then simply stepped back.
I am quite convinced after 5 years of reading: No yanmaya, for my m269.
my y700 even gathered r1b-v88..living testers with names. 100% african.
there is a trail missing.. I hope science finds it. Yanmaya makes no sense at all in any way shape or form..especially for western african.
I am in the R-L238..veered off from the very spanish L151 into very western p312... Even my trueancestry has me in top matches with no subclades matches at all.
I am unfound.
my closest grave is iceland 850CE, that is with y700 results. tsg-a1 i think it is.. I am one of the 6 people in the ph1220 notes. and one they found in etrsucan as the more broad L238..
I think we scooted right across the med in 3 places.
sicily, italy, iberia...perhaps croatia, greek islands.
no arabia, no siberian icebergs..no caucusus mountains.
there is an egypt however...
I stay tuned. Another real oddity for me.. my lower jaw and teeth matched a native american grave.
my closest Y relatives contain eriksson and other famous seafarers.
