  • Sarmatians DNA

    I came across this snippet regarding dna tests that were conducted on 15 Sarmatian skeletons found in a kurgan in Central-Asia. Is anyone familiar with article? Does anyone know what haplogroups the discovered haplotypes profiled?

    Fifteen Kurgan skeletons of Central-Asian, Sarmatian, origin (400-200 BC) were investigated. The exceptional preservation conditions in the South-Russian steppe has led to the recovery of DNA in 14 of these 15 individuals. The haplotypes were compared to a database of more than 30,000 modern day individuals (in collaboration with Dr. Peter Forster, Cambridge) and led to the following conclusions:
    1. All 14 individuals show differing haplotypes which suggests an unexpectedly heterogeneous gene pool.
    2. Most of these haplotypes are rare in modern day populations of the same region.
    3. Most of the haplotypes are nowadays found in Europe, the Caucasus or around the Black Sea.
    4. Two individuals stem from a Middle-Age burial in the Kurgan and show haplotypes that nowadays are found in Arabic speaking countries.
    5. The burial with the highest status –according to grave goods- is female and shows a haplotype that is found in modern day East Asia.


    err should i say it again the samaritians were keltoi from the sumarian area and they crossed the mts and went west. settling europe
    again science backs this up

        I seem to recall reading something about that.

        I think they were only able to extract mtDNA for testing, unfortunately.

        It would be cool to know what y-haplogroups were present, as well.
