The rest of me is mostly British Isles, Western Europe, American melting pot, etc. But Ancient Origins says I have 54% Hunter Gatherer, and based on other posters, I have a pretty good idea about where it came from

    Ancient Origins Results:
    10% Metal Age Invader
    37% Farmer
    54% Hunter Gatherer

    Of note, my Swedish from both sides comes from either Gotaland, but primarily Skane (both in Southern Sweden). I noticed that Swedes seem to have the highest hunter gatherer percentages of the Scandinavians (although I haven't seen any self-proclaimed Danes posting their percentages on here), and then on the other side of the Baltic Sea from Southern Sweden, there's really high percentages being posted by Latvians, Lithuanians, etc. So what's up with this Baltic Sea area? Is it because these were all areas that were also believed to have been infiltrated by Huns?
    It is because they had less input from farmers moving up from the Fertile Crescent and retained more DNA from the early hunter-gatherers. Baltics and Finland stayed particularly more isolated compared to most of the rest of Europe.

    k, I'll join the fun
    I will freely admit I understand 'groupings' of more modern DNA vs./in comparison to history (Ancient Greece/Rome onward) and the movement of peoples over the last few hundred years and last 1,000 or so years, than I do these Ancient Origins and the groups there of.
    So here are my parents Ancestry origins estimates (they tested 1st there then I transferred their kits to FTDNA) and their FTDNA results and my FTDNA myOrigin results and Ancient Origins (I have not tested anywhere else)
    (And yes my parents are confirmed by DNA to be my folks lol despite the mis-matching in origins (so says FTDNA lol) )

    Here is myOrigins;

    97% European

    50% British Isles
    39% Western & Central European
    3% Eastern European
    3% Southern European
    2% Finland & Northern Siberian

    2% Central/South Asian
    2% Central Asian

    I think yes it 's based on principal component analysis done on values of autosomal genes. It 's well explained by Johannes Krause here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dk65TbJRN_A

    According to FTDNA, I think Metal Age Invader is mainly related to Yamnaya and Corded Wire Peoples (80% Yamnaya), look at FTDNA Site for the definition of these catagories.
    HG are related to Western Hunter Gatherers (Loschbour, Motola, Labrana ). It would be interesting to know where we are located onto the Haak picture like this ones:

    But this doesn't correspond to the value given by geneticians (see Haak "Massive migration from the steppe is a sourcefor Indo-European languages in Europe") French are around Farmer 50% (Brown) it's right but they are more 10% HG (Blue) & 40% Metal Age Inv (Yamnaya Green), It 's all the away around Why?
