    Evidence for dynastic succession among early Celtic elites in Central Europe

    Here under some extracts written in "italics" - comments are of mine for some blog, don't mind. 1 – on their PCA we see the relatively loose S-Germany Celtic cluster spans a little bit over the today Germans cluster (I suppose SW and Southern ones) and surely over what I suppose to be today...

    Etruscan DNA: Tarquinia, ninth–seventh century BC, central Italy

    These few (still) Etruscans seem to me open enough to other ethnies individuals. Concerning phoenotypes, even with these last contributions, I think we have too few of them to built any model, what is not the case concerning autosomes DNA spite the relative heterogeneity: the solution wold be...

    How can IE migration be explained without mentioning Seima Turbino?

    Seima Turbino is a cultural terms, and apparently not an ethnic qualification. The first traces of this S.T. culture appeared around 2000 BC. Even if not the mainstream opinion, some archeologists seem linking the metallurgic aspect to Iran sphere, ta least partly !?! - The cultural, artefacts...

    How can IE migration be explained without mentioning Seima Turbino?

    It's rich of doc's (artefact). The question is the interpretation we may (or not) give them.

    Phenotypes of the Portuguese

    There is no silly subject, only silly interpretation or agendas. Quality of observation and try to objectivity is good. I agree the average skin pigmentation is less interesting that the distribution of indidual types which are the result of the most of genomic constitutions, and linked to the...

    Phenotypes of the Portuguese

    These maps reflect the means, not the individuals reality. the extremes which participate to these means are not the same everywhere. Selection doesn't uniformise completely the skins colours, just it tends to favour locally the most adaptive ones whatever the mutations which created the more or...

    Phenotypes of the Portuguese

    "pinkish-white" complexion doesn't signifies you have the lightest hues we find often enough, say, among Irish people. Coon find 20% or this complexion among Libaneses. That said I agree with you concerning the difficulty to put correct words to describe skin colour with all the gradual tiny...

    Phenotypes of the Portuguese

    I see a lot of Portuguese people and the majority is what we call dark skinned at an European level of criteria for "white people". You can believe in my objectivity here because I have NO agenda. the 'olive' colour skin often cited is it's true a bit exagerated: this "dark" skin I refer too is...

    Phenotypes of the Portuguese

    Sincerely, for other Europeans, Portugueses are among the darkest pigmented and most often dark pigmented people of Europe. As a whole I see only Cypriots coming darker - sure some European regions are as dark or darker, I think in Sardinia by instance - Spain has some districts of dark people...

    Genetic study Population changes in northern Italy from the Iron Age to Modern Times

    My calculation was just to provide some scale of impact with 20%, say in first place concerning WHG. Sure, theory is not reality. Agree with you.

    Red Hair very common in Eastern European?

    @Melkiirs - I ‘ll try to answer you. - I am an amateur, and I observed on life (common people) and on pictures (sportmen, for the most, more than a picture for a person, preferably on collective pics) - - my ‘scale’ is y my eye, I regreat I never had the Fisher’s and others scales to compare...

    I'm sorry, in post #8 I repeated myself!

    Red Hair very common in Eastern European?

    I doubt attractivity of red hairs would be the principal cause of red hairs in Ireland - a time has been when ancient Celts considered that the red haired people had already liven 2 lifes and had then their last chance! today Irish and British people don't consider too well the red haired...

    Red Hair very common in Eastern European?

    France is changing fast. But rural France of the 1970's was still contrasted enough concerning pigmentation, and just a bit lighter than Slovenia as a national mean (very little indeed!). It's true that Slovenia is the lightest new state of ancient Yougoslavia, with some parts of northern...

    Genetic study Population changes in northern Italy from the Iron Age to Modern Times

    These pseudo geographic namings are kind of mental projection of PCA on a map. It isn't the arbitrary projection of position of ancient pop's PCA's on a map (what meaning BTW?) but rather the position of the modern pop's rich for these components (pur ones or a mix for 'steppe' (but the HG part...

    Genetic study Population changes in northern Italy from the Iron Age to Modern Times

    'Steppe' is rather "northeastern" - and 'WHG' rather "northwestern" - this partial trend towards "north" for WHG is explained by the fact that in today pop's this component is the strongest among Balts and then among Scandinavians, roughly said. apart: I maid a simplified but arithmetically...

    @Vitruvius You wrote: "Just look at how drastically Etruscan and Latin languages were differentiated despite the two regions sharing the same material culture and geography in the final bronze age. These two places also have identical autosomal patterns, just like Northern Italians and...

    I doubt you read all that in scientific works! That said I agree with you the I-E were not the founders of every civilisation. Who says that?

    What is your problem? Some complex? Or a vision of History as only a boxing or rugby match? Sorry, I try to understand the tone of your posts?
