Ancient Origins

I just noticed the ancientOrigins on my dashboard (or, I guess it's Ancient European Origins?). Very cool. My results are:

12% Metal Age Invader
42% Farmer
45% Hunter Gatherer
0% Non-European

Interestingly, my results only total 99%. MyOrigins also only add up to 99%, and I understand that is a result of statistical rounding. However, in the description of Non-European, it is stated there is not enough genetic data to elaborate and to refer to your myOrigins if you have Non-European results. On myOrigins I do show 1% North African (on 23andMe I show a small amount of Subsaharan African). Is it possible that missing 1% from my ancient results could include African contributions? For example, if it was less than 1%? My thinking is that even with statistical rounding, there is at least .5% something not European.

ANCIENT ORIG. I think they mean OF YOUR EUROPEAN SIDE

Hi, I know that I'm not 100% European (28.8% native american verified by FTDNA, 23&Me, Nat.Geo, AncestryDNA), also I can see it in the mirror. So I assume that these are the percentages of my European side the Ancient Origins are breaking down, rather than a completely new interpretation of my total ancestry...

Question FOLLOWUP-Ancient Origins percentages suddenly changed!

Oh my,
When I went right back in to have another look at Ancient Origins, the percentages were suddenly different! Before it said something like 11%, 42% 49% and 0 Non-Euro. This time is said 9%, 37%, 30%, and 25% Non European. I don't know what to make of this sudden flip flop, although it's closer to what I know myself to be...

Talking

Here's my two cents worth:

12% Metal Age Invader
43% Farmer
46% Hunter-Gatherer
O% non-European

That's what it says. It looks to me like 101% total.

So quite a lot of Hunter-Gatherer in Scandinavia?

ftdna: "The hunter-gatherer subsistence strategy dominated the landscape of the European continent for thousands of years until populations that relied on farming and animal husbandry migrated into the area during the middle to late Neolithic Era around 8,000–7,000 years ago. Individuals found at the Loschbour, Luxembourg, and Motala, Sweden, sites have mitochondrial U5 or U2 haplogroups, which is typical of Hunter-Gatherers in Europe and Y-chromosome haplogroup I".
