More on the Tollensee Valley battle site inc. genetics

I know, but not so bad if everybody recognises two armies, and the paper set goodly the neolithic sample in a neolithic DNA environment... by the way bad quality affecting only teal? you can try to count how many chances per million are for it.

Statistically, it skips smaller admixtures more than bigger ones. For example, if teal is 5% of DNA but only10% of genome is recovered from these ancient guys, it has bigger chance than not, not to have the teal in it, or sub 0.5% and not going to show much on the graph.

I don't know how much of the genomes they recovered, but 10 % would be enough, that would be 300 million pairs.
But I guess they have less.
If I understand well, what they present now are only preliminary results, based on novel techniques.
I hope they'll come up with more later.
And afaik they are still digging on the site.

If DNA is damaged percents could be keept almost the same, percents don't rely on rough quantities but on relation of quantities... by the way it's quite absurd, take this imaginary exemple, in USA there are 15 cities with 2 million inhabitants being a 5% black american, North Korea bombs all such cities killing 90% of the population, and only in 3 cities the Black Americans survive, it wouldn't be sound?

I'm not sure, it was just hypothetical examples. Possibly they have much less, so low that it brings "statistical instabilities".

Have it your way, and instead seeing unreliable samples making faulty readings, you see them as a good proof of "conspiracy of steppe invasion".
 
where I said steppe in this thread? you are guessing about my thinking but you fail
 
I made my first ADMIXTURE run ever... Modern and ancient samples from Tollense study, without few outliers.

It is K=7 run. PC1 is WHG/SHG component clearly. Only PC5 is hard to describe.

Among moderns we have first Finns, than Kargopol Russian, then Poles.

WEZ16 has on the contrary 51% of Euro Neolithic (pc7) component (check spreadsheet and sort columns).

I think we already have enough DNA to evit a too big distorsion in respective proportions; that said individuals in Tollense show great differences within the sample. A part could be put on the account of poor DNA sample, but that said, as a whole, even arbitrary (or not) grouped together, the mean group show even in Genetiker higher %s of WHG AND EEF than preceding CHL and BA cultures of the area, the ones with apparently high level of Steppics. So the lower level or absence of CHGlike is not a too big surprise and is surely not only a statistical accident. Genetiker founds more EHGlike (dark blue) than the survey; I have no element nor knowledge to discuss it. What pop could explain this: a less steppic one, more "autochtonous", with an EEF pop lixed with HG's; the possible excess of EHGlike could be, exageration or not of Genetiker, due to a rather Northern HG's pop, kind of SHG, maybe rich in Y-I2a2 and Y-I1. Y haplos could help here, for sure. I suppose the pre-IE or at least pre-Steppics pops of Central Europe at these times had seen a continual increase in HG's auDNA at the cost of Farmers DNA, but here we maybe have a more southern one (more Y-I2a2 + Y-?) but also more EEF, more WHG, kind of proto-Lusacian input, and a more northern one, more SHGlike, (more Y-I1 + Y-?) with less EEF; all the way, these two pops could have been close enough in means, and not descendants of Steppics nomads? spite it seems weird at those times. The more northern one could be the remnants of East TRBK people??? and incorporated, later, in the Germanics genesis. Their apparent lack of CHG seem discarding direct demic link with post-Unetice.
All that is very fragile, it's true. Guessing and no more to date.
