Genetic origins of European peoples – very interesting!

Two new articles in Nature (summarized here in the NY Times), indicate very interesting origins, in at least 3 waves, of European populations.

Wish we had some good genetic data on the Philistines – would be great to ascertain and understand what we believe is their very mixed origins. Unfortunately, so far, the levels of preservation of Philistine skeletal material, at Safi and other Philistine sites, is not that good, so as of now, this type of data is not available.



P.S. But one never knows – all this could change this season…
