Do you believe Jefferson’s subclade arrived in Britain and Europe during the Neolithic, Chalcolithic, or Bronze Age? It could have arrived in the Neolithic or Chalcolithic from Anatolia, and from there, migrated to Britain as a Neolithic Farmer lineage, or even more likely, as a farmer lineage absorbed by the Steppe derived Bell Beakers; the later migrations of Celtic/Germanic tribes could have brought it as well. I also don’t discount the possibility that it arrived in Britain as a Neolithic-Bronze Age lineage from the conquering Romans, with it originating in the Italian Peninsula, or practically anywhere in the Balkans.
None of them actually. I'd say during the Roman period.
It's surely not during the Neolithic as British Neolithic farmers were almost all I2 (H2 was also found in Ireland, but never T1a).
The Copper and Bronze Ages brought R1b to the British Isles.
