Paleogenomics tells us Mesolithic Scania was similar in composition to Jutland, entirely I* and I2. This is corroborated by quasi-historical identification of these areas with Yngling.

Likely, the ur-population of Lapland was N1.

Prior to the Bronze Age, what went on in the middle, around the Bay of Bothnia? Did I2 get as far north as Västerbotten? Did N1 get as far south as Västerbotten? Who were the inhabitants of pre-Bronze Age Kvenland?

First were Magdalenian HG, 15,5 ka. Haplo I*, soon to be replaced by Villabruna I2.
Uralic haplo N arrived only some 2,6 ka, when climate became colder and the farmers of the Nordic bronze age left their more northern settlements.
