Preview: Upcoming Ancient Greek Transect (Mesolithic to Medieval) from Biomuse.

Don't agree with you there. What Lazaridis proved was that first Greeks were Mediterranean, rather than anything else. And that the modern Greeks and neighboring peoples were similar to them, but with some delusion of their genepool. That was the essense of the research. Like the rest of us, he didn't know exactly to what extent other people invaded Greece after the Bronze Age. But this was less relevant at that point of time. It's not that anyone expected modern Greeks to be pure Mycenaens. It's only later research which started to shed ligh into the Slavic admixture in the Balkans.



I postulated that Doric Greeks were somewhat different as well. But we still don't have sufficient evidence for that.

But we do. Not all Greeks are homogenous. The ones in the Aegean/eastern parts diverge.
 
So excited for this!

A Spartan with blue eyes and light hair? No one tell Hitler. :dismayed::dismayed::confused:

Yeah, no one tell Hitler the Spartan is genetically Southern European/Mediterranean, despite those features.

Haha

reminds me of the Scene in the film ..True Romance ......when Dennis Hopper tells Christopher Walken, that all sicilians where originally blond hair and blue eyed people
 
With so little steppe DNA, I think this lends some more weight to Anatolian_N bringing some light features, in addition to light skin.

That is for me the surprise of this study, the very small amount of Steppe. Which begs the question, were the Greeks displaced by Steppe Invaders from Central Europe? The prevailing narrative up to now was that they were a lot of admixture with steppe.
 
Also, nobody better tell Hitler that the "Aryans" are darker than modern Europeans.

Hitler should have focused more on his E-M35 Natufian/Iberomaurusian ancestors who were mid-tone skinned.

The research team has a video posted in Greek. I took the time view it. They argue that Abdera are colonists from Asia Minor. It concerns an Ionian Greek from the 6th century BC. They settled on the coast of Thrace. That specimen is really not that far off from modern Greeks of Asia Minor.

The Akanthos specimens are originally West Aegean islanders and therefore represent the original Bronze Age population. One of them has more Steppe because it could have more Log02 admixture.

On the other hand SLK also has higher levels of admixture from Asia Minor. So in all, if we exclude the islanders it seems that post Iron Age Greeks have more admixture from Anatolia. I don't see that as evidence for a Dorian invasion from Epirus.

The scattered genes from Log 02 and Log 04 types are definitely the source of light featured outliers in Mycenaean Greeks. Nordicists were off by maybe a thousand years. Thinking that Mycenaeans were majority Steppe. During the Iron Age, East Med/Anatolian elements entered the Greek gene pool. Along with some additional Steppe.
 
It's very well recorded that during LBA people identical to North Balkans Danube, associated with Eastern Urnfielders took part in so called Aegean migrations, the introduction of cremation burials, Naue II swords, and whole other package is an attestation of this. Facts are straight there.

I think E-V13 became a mainstream line because of Slavic inclusions in Peloponnese. (40% to 50% Early Sclaveni admixture) Later Arvanite colonies gave a bust by 5% to 8%.

That's illogical, E-V13 was reduced in Central-Eastern Balkans by a large margin, and the same Slavs wouldn't increase the percentage in Peloponnese which is twice as larger as in Balkan Slavs countries. It doesn't add up the math. Try something else.
 
@ihype02

Is that a modern Peloponnese sample?

And are you saying that Croats from Bosnia or Herzegovina Serbs are 100% North-Eastern European?

The rumored Slavic samples according to some people in Anthrogenica had some Balkan admixture during their road. A good proportion E-V13 in Serbia and especially Croatia does not seem to be native.

Besides I need to say this: Do you know that Medieval Albanians probably remained endogamous till the at least 9th century. (did not mix with the Pagan Slavs at least not as much) And besides that we know that 10th century South Slavic genetic profile was already created.

So that Slavic admixture that we mixed with was South Slavic. The same will probably turn out to be true for Peloponnese.

But we need to know how the Late Roman age ancestors of Albanians were like. (I believe Lazio/Marche/Tuscan-like)

You are assuming that all Slavs were the same, they were not.
Albanians and Greeks have similar proportions of R1a and I2a while South Slavs have way more I2a than R1a. Y-DNA does not work that way.
Why did J2a die out in Peloponnese but not in other more genetically conservative islands? Besides do you know that Crete has nearly as much R1a and I2a as Peloponnese. ~15% in Crete while Peloponnese has ~20%

It also does not add up that old Greeks were traveling all other the world forgot to spread E-V13 in Crete and Dodecanese Islands. And even in Crete the West has more E-V13 than the East.
 
I believe the biggest contributors of E-V13 in Greece are the “Roman” citizens of Thrace, Macedonia, and Epirus (Vetus+Nova) + Albanians and Vlachs. Those people we later simply called Slavs/Bulgarians were initially mostly Vlachs under the influence of the Bulgarian Church and weren’t yet fully assimilated.

I doubt 6th-9th century actual Slavs (not Slavic subjects) carried that much E-V13. Even Medieval Serbia and Bosnia were flooded with Vlachs up to the 15-16th century.

I didn't assume when i replied to you. And i know how Y-DNA works especially a rise in percentage and downgrade depending on the situation. E-V13 in Dodecanese Islands and Cyprus is actually in decent percentages, but not in Crete which still makes sense since their actual contribution there started to wane.

I am actually not saying E-V13 is Proto-Greek, i say that the biggest contributors to E-V13 in Greece was the Bronze to Iron Age Danubian-Urnfield/Eastern Urnfield influences, attested in Barbarian-Ware from Greece, which archeologists connect to Knobbed-Ware and hence to Psenicevo which is already confirmed it was heavy packed with E-V13. There was some disruption of material culture from Mycenaean <> Dark Ages <> Classical Greeks. I assume after the Dark Ages the Barbarian-Ware somehow ended up adopting the Greek speech.

The so called Aegean migrations was a huge event during Bronze to Iron transition age, and for decades it has been talked and brought to tables that a lot of groups via Central Balkans headed toward Mycenean Greece.

Despite all of these, one thing i am quite sure is that E-V13 didn't rose there in percentage with the Slavic invasion. It's absurd thinking so when you consider the recent aDNA samples from Viminacium. How much it was prevalent before Slavic and after, when summing up.

Do you have sources about E-V13 in Dodecanese?

I remember reading once a post by rafc who collected info on that:

E-M215: significantly higher in Thessaly (32%), the Dodecanese (32%) and the Peloponessos (30-35%) with the exception of Arcadia, where it's only 24%. It's close to the mean in Asia minor (25%), Cyprus (25%), the Ionian islands (26%) and, maybe surprising, Epirus (28%). Slightly lower on the central Aegean Islands (22%), the northern Aegean Islands (20%), Athens (18%) and, maybe again surprising, Greek Macedonia (16%) and Thesaloniki (22%). It's significantly lower in Pontic Greeks (12%) and Crete (12%). In the detailed results the split is: 16,4% V13, 1% V32, 1% V22, 4,8% Z827. It's harder to judge the distribution of the subgroups as the totals are quite small for that.[

Though he didn't quite scope it down further than E-M215, i really doubt that E-V13/non-EV13 ratio would be less than 90/10 with the exception of Cyprus where i would put to 60-70/40-30.

E-V13 in Dodecanese Islands is fairly small according to this project and also in Eastern Cretans who are much more genetically (and historically) "conservative".

Eye-popping amount of J2a-L70 in Kalymnos. That haplogroup is in my bloodline, confirmed through a relative (sub-clade unknown, unfortunately).

The Roman Balkans study shows that much E-V13 was found in the Balkans, before the Slavs arrived. Certainly Slavs who incorporated local people could have helped spread some around. That study argues for rapid assimilation of Balkans locals with Slavs, who brought a new “Northeastern” ancestry signal, which is weaker in mainland Greece.

That is not a project, just one member solely collecting. Looks straight away off the grid with the papers Imo.
