Is this possibly what the Eurogenes HG vs. farmer calculator is referring to with its "Mediterranean farmer" category?"


    Ok, this could very well be it. I do remember reading somewhere that there were hypothesized to be more than one group of farmers who left the Levant/Anatolia by different routes. So very interesting to me the wide distribution across so much of Europe. Even with this being so many thousands of years ago the FTDNA My Origins gives me 9% South Eastern Europe and a 5% Asia Minor ancestry along with the expected British Isles, Scandinavian and Central European ancestry. Everything you referred to in the quotes about supports that this ancestry is still evident today. I am definitely going to read the article from the link you provided.
    I just started a new thread - see http://forums.familytreedna.com/show...11&postcount=1 - about a new study, "Genetic origins of the Minoans and Mycenaeans." You may want to read this, since it's relevant to points that have been discussed in this thread.
