    Location of Eurasian mt-DNA lineages

    As all of us know, Humanity was born in (East) Africa between 300-100 KYBP. And I put 'East' in brackets because archeologists have discovered and ancient Homo Sapiens skull in Morocco dating more than 200,000 yrs ago. So we shouldn't be surprised if we see internal migrations along the...
