I add I agree that Tyson Fury could pass among Yamnayans in my opinion (concerning features), but he is not the more typical I think.
BTW he is an Irish "gypsy".
Yes, the original Yamnaya were cerainly much darker until they inherited the genomes for lighter skin and hair colouring from another group of people living in the land locked central Asian region. I can't remember who these people were, but according to articles and documentaries that I came across, these people entered northern Europe before the Yamnaya. They were supposed to have been responsible for the lighter phenotype of the Neolithic Funnel Beaker Folk.Most of the Yamnaya people were Proto-Europids which is a Cromagnoid with dark hair and dark eyes which was something like a mediterranean
type with wide face and minor mongoloid traits. This type is almost extinct today. Most of the modern Europeans look like the pre-indo-european people of old Europe. I think it's possible that the so-called Alpine type could be a more recent reduced "derivate" from the original because this type matches geographically to the expansion of the Indo-Europeans in Europe and also matches pigmentation but this type exist in none-european people so there could be different sources of this phenotype.
Tarim Mummies were found not to be the Afanasievo IE Tocharians (which did indeed have Yamnaya ancestry) but rather an earlier layer, remnants of some ancient Siberian Ice Age refuge population I believe, like more ANE like the Mal'ta people.For some reason in my mind the male Tarim basin mummy looks like what Yamnaya male would like, which looks northern European to me.
That's news to me. InterestingTarim Mummies were found not to be the Afanasievo IE Tocharians (which did indeed have Yamnaya ancestry) but rather an earlier layer, remnants of some ancient Siberian Ice Age refuge population I believe, like more ANE like the Mal'ta people.
