  • Prehistoric DNA study for France

    https://www.pnas.org/content/117/23/12791#ref-36 hope this will be of interest to some of you here, I thought the relatively early ( though not inexplicable ) occurrence of R1b was interesting.

    Figure 1 tells the story pretty well: no Yamnaya DNA and no R1b-M269 until Bell Beaker and the third millennium BC.

      It’s strange how they were surprised at France’s genetic diversity during the Neolithic period, I guess because a similar study in the British isles yielded exclusively Haplogroup I. Not to say that the other haplogroups were abundant ( C and H, I believe?) but they were still present all the same. I wonder if they’ll ever get around to testing the DNA of the skeleton found buried at Veyre Monton in late summer of 2019?
