PL_N17 from Gustorzyn, Early Bronze Age Poland, ca. 1953-1880 BC:

http://www.ebi.ac.uk/ena/data/view/SAMN04633627

According to Vladimir Tagankin, his Y-DNA haplogroup was R1a-Z280.

This is the oldest R1a-Z280 found so far, and the only Early BA one.

R1a-Z280 today shows very high frequencies (>50%) and relatively high SNP diversity in Northern Poland. This is a strong argument for genetic continuity in Northern Poland since the Early Bronze Age.

The analysis was run by Vladimir Tagankin from YFull, who, I'm told, is also pretty sure that PL_N17 falls under SNP R-S24902.

Interestingly, R-S24902 is an extremely rare marker that currently appears to be most common in Northwestern Europe. But I'd say that there are two very good reasons for this: 1) most Y-chromosomes tested at this sort of level are from Northwestern Europe and 2) today Northwestern Europe shows higher genetic diversity than Eastern Europe. So I expect this pattern to be repeated for many other high resolution ancient Y-chromosome samples from Central and Eastern Europe.


http://polishgenes.blogspot.be/2015/05/r1a1a-from-early-bronze-age-warrior.html

Ancient DNA tests on a skeleton from an Early Bronze Age "warrior" grave near Hrubieszow, southeastern Poland, have revealed that the remains belong to Y-haplogroup R1a1a [source].

Mitochondrial sequences were also obtained from seven other samples from the same burial site, and assigned to mt-haplogroups H1a, H1b (two), H2a (two), H6 and U5b1.

R1a1a is by far the most frequent Y-haplogroup in Poland today, and its presence in the remains from a high-status burial might be a clue as to how it became so common in East-Central Europe.

Interestingly, the site is classified as part of the Strzyżow Culture, which is considered by Polish archaeologists to be the result of contacts between local communities in southeastern Poland and Kurgan newcomers from the North Pontic steppe.
 
Genetically he is like Corded Ware. Much more Steppe than modern Poles, less EEF and WHG than modern Poles.

Exactly what I discovered too. A genetic continuity in Poland through all Bronze Age. I think, it stops somewhere in Iron Age when population turns more like modern genome. Less Baloch and more Caucasian admixture. I also found ancient two genomes which mixed together give Polish Unetice. One I think is h-g, I think, who wasn't identified yet as such. I will post it in a new thread tomorrow.

By 2000 BC everyone in Eastern Europe had a big chunk of R1a and Steppe and EEF and WHG ancestry. Therefore Poles' ancestors could have been living all over Eastern Europe. Yes people in Poland were simiar to modern Poles in 2000 BC but that doesn't mean they were modern Poles's primary or important ancestors.

Yes, certainly he has less EEF and more Steppe than modern Poles.

This is why he clusters to the North-East and to the East of Poles.

Not really. There are ~100,000 British-Irish customers in FTDNA, compared to maybe ~4,000 Polish.

This gives you some idea why there are more English people with this subclade than Polish, among customers of FTDNA. Even if there are just 8 Poles and 100 Brits with this subclade in FTDNA, this is still 0,2% of Poles and only 0,1% of Brits.

And I'm sure the odds are much more even than 100 : 8.

The same situation applies to every other subclade. For example my own subclade of R1b, DF27>L617, is mostly found in Britain according to FTDNA, but this is because Brits are so overrepresented among FTDNA customers in general.

PL_N17 has around 50 matches with modern people in GEDmatch, according to Diagnostic Utility:

has approximately 50 total matches with other kits. Of these matches there are 10 >= 7cM and 40 < 7cM.

Batch processing has not yet completed, so it is impossible to check who are these modern people.
