    Of perceptions and self-perceptions

    She doesn't strike me as so specifically Italian-looking honestly, I'd guess more Cyprus or that general area. Maybe she could pass (the make-up helps of course) but as she would maybe pass in Italy she would pass anywhere else in Southern Europe too. She might remind a little bit of Luisa...

    Average Percentages of WHG, ENF, and ESH Ancestry in Modern Europeans

    Are the Uralic and CHG components the only extra components among modern Europeans, other than EEF, WHG and Steppe?

    New Felsina Etruscan Paper by Zaro et alia 2024

    What an incredibly dumb and irrelevant comment, moreover considering the most extreme geographical points of the two countries. Did you know that Como si closer to Copenhagen than to Palermo? What is that supposed to mean in genetics term? Are you suggesting that NW Iranians are genetically...

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

    It's surprising the diversity in such a small sample considering there's also a Northern European/Baltic like individual.

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

    That contradicts a previous study with abnormally low rates of blue eyes for Etruscans compared to other IA and modern Italians.

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

    The Basques were one of the examples I had in mind exactly, as they have such high level of WHG although they aren't a northen population though very much western. If I had to give labels (shaky as they are) I'd assume the "northern" label goes to the Steppe component if anything. Thanks for...

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

    Pax Augusta, please help me understand. WHG was the main ancestral component of most of Europe from Scandinavia to southern Iberia at some point so there's nothing inherently "northern" in that (surely not phenotypically, going by the facial reconstruction of WHG). It just happens that modern...

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

    Who were these C./N. European like outliers in your opinion? We already know with a good degree of certainty that the aegean/caucasian signal was from people living further south in the peninsula (originally from Greece or Anatolia).

    Steppe Ancestry in western Eurasia and the spread of the Germanic Languages

    Call it "MENA" you might as well call it "Claudette", that is not what it is.

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

    I'm keeping an open mind and looking forward to seeing what the ancient DNA of the Italic peoples living north to the Picenes will reveal.

    Genetic study The Picenes and the Genetic Landscape of Central Adriatic Italy in the Iron Age.

    Thast should definitely open interesting scenarios for modern Italians carrying that marker.

    Genetic study The Picenes and the Genetic Landscape of Central Adriatic Italy in the Iron Age.

    Of course, I've learnt that the Etruscans were genetically similar to the other IA Italics and many of them were R1b, I just didn't expect (because of what I've read about this subclade of R1b) that any of them, or any other IA Italic for that matter, would come up as U106+. Cool. :)

    Genetic study The Picenes and the Genetic Landscape of Central Adriatic Italy in the Iron Age.

    One Etruscan was tested U106+? How interesting, thanks for the information.

    Genetic study The Picenes and the Genetic Landscape of Central Adriatic Italy in the Iron Age.

    Agreed, that also confirms my comment that the percentage of blonds in the Aosta Valley should probably be lower than that shown for Alto Adige.

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

    After all it wouldn't look good on them to name one part of the peninsula "Gallia" (Gauls-free or not).

    Genetic study The Picenes and the Genetic Landscape of Central Adriatic Italy in the Iron Age.

    Of course you're right, what part of northern Italy hasn't after all. Yet the phenotypical difference is quite apparent between native "unmixed" Aostans and South Tyroleans for example, whereas the former's phenotypes blend with much more continuity with their immediate neighbours of Piemonte...

    Genetic study The Picenes and the Genetic Landscape of Central Adriatic Italy in the Iron Age.

    Above 20% looks "generous" for Aosta Valley. Of course it's based only on my personal experience in that region (substantial as it may be), so make of that what you will...
