I would tell you that PCA-based analysis is bogus:If Germans have introduced upwards of 20% to the modern Italian ethnogenesis and imperial Romans were East Med shifted is there a possibility that it might be a bit difficult to find modern Italians that resemble these older busts ? That ancient Roman in Britian does not really resemble Mark Ruffalo all that much.
This thread is a few years old and newer findings have been found.
What do you think ??
Ok yeh I can see it being bogus but if the east med is from a local source why have they promoted the idea that Rome underwent a population change that again changed after the Germanic tribes invaded...I did think it was just selection bias.I would tell you that PCA-based analysis is bogus:
Principal Component Analyses (PCA)-based findings in population genetic studies are highly biased and must be reevaluated - Scientific ReportsPrincipal Component Analysis (PCA) is a multivariate analysis that reduces the complexity of datasets while preserving data covariance. The outcome can be visualized on colorful scatterplots, ideally with only a minimal loss of information. PCA applications, implemented in well-cited packages...www.nature.com
That my these charts are consistent with academic analysis
Also that EAST MED didn't last even past Late antiquity, and it was C6 a local source that already had CHG/IN that mixed with IA Italians.
Do Italians look like Romans?
AI thinks I look like a Roman Emperor:
