Linguistics, Archaeology & Genetics conference abstracts

This conference, aimed at "integrating new evidence for the origin and spread of the Indo-European languages", will take place next week. Some abstracts (pdf):

Close genetic relationship of Neolithic Anatolians to early European farmers

We study 1.2 million genome-wide single nucleotide polymorphisms on a sample of 26 Neolithic individuals (~6,300 years BCE) from northwestern Anatolia. Our analysis reveals a homogeneous population that was genetically similar to early farmers from Europe (F ST =0.004±0.0003 and frequency of 60% of Y-chromosome haplogroup G2a). We model Early Neolithic farmers from central Europe and Iberia as a genetic mixture of ~90% Anatolians and ~10% European hunter-gatherers, suggesting little influence by Mesolithic Europeans prior to the dispersal of European farmers into the interior of the continent. Neolithic Anatolians differ from all present-day populations of western Asia, suggesting genetic changes have occurred in parts of this region since the Neolithic period. We suggest that the language spoken by the homogeneous Anatolian-European Neolithic farmers is unlikely to have been the same as that spoken by the Yamnaya steppe pastoralists whose ancestry was derived from eastern Europe and a different population from the Caucasus/Near East [Haak et al. 2015], and discuss implications for alternative models of Indo-European dispersals.

The Genetic History and Structure of Britain

Nick Patterson, Broad Institute, Boston and David Reich, Harvard Medical School and Broad Institute, Boston

The recently published paper on the genetic structure of Britain (Leslie et al. Nature 2015) has shown subtle genetic variation correlating with geography. Here we reexamine the evidence in the light of our understanding of the genetics of Ancient Europe and comment on some implications for how Indo-Europeans spread into Europe.

From Yamnaya to Bell Beakers: Mechanisms of Transmission in an Interconnected Europe, 3500–2000 BC

Volker Heyd, Universtiy Bristol, Bistol and University of Helsinki, Helsinki

Yamnaya Peoples in the East and Bell Beakers Users in the West are rightly seen as the apogees in a long-term process of individualisation, gender differentiation, warrior display and internationalisation/unification that fundamentally change the face of the European Continent from the mid fourth and throughout the third millennium BC. We can only approach the reasons why prehistoric peoples and cultures from regions across Europe, which were no more than marginally in touch before, join in the same emblematic pottery, new drinking habits, similar burial customs, anthropomorphic stelae, ostentatious display of weapons and other paraphernalia, and thus common values. However rather than seeing this development as an internal European progress I want to point to the importance of the Pontic-Caspian steppes, and a 2000 years lasting interaction scenario of infiltrating Suvorovo-Novodanilovka, Nizhnemikhailovka-Kvityana and Yamnaya peoples and populations with their more sedentary contemporaries in southeast Europe, the Carpathian basin and northeast of the Carpathian bow. A crucial part of this interaction –besides migrations and the exchange of genes and goods as recently highlighted in several publications not only in Nature and Science– is the forwarding of innovations in the sphere of subsistence economy. We see this archaeologically in a further importance of animal husbandry, with larger herds, specialised breeding and new forms of herding management in particular for cattle. This obviously sets in motion a substantial shift in general mobility patterns and of communication networks.

It is easily conceivable that this interaction must also have had a profound impact on the whole settlement organisation and people’s way-of-life, in consequence probably fundamentally affecting the basics of societies and thus challenging the whole system of ideas, imaginations, morale, symbols and terms – a new world-view and ultimately the base for a new language.

Pre-Indo-European speech carrying a Neolithic signature emanating from the Aegean

Guus Kroonen, Institute for Nordic Studies and Linguistics, Copenhagen University, Copenhagen

When different Indo-European speaking groups settled Europe, they did not arrive in terra nullius. Both from the perspective of the Anatolian hypothesis 1,2,3 and the Steppe hypothesis, 4,5,6 the carriers of Indo-European speech likely encountered existing populations that spoke dissimilar, unrelated languages. Relatively little is known about the Pre-Indo-European linguistic landscape of Europe, as the Indo-Europeanization of the continent caused a largely unrecorded, massive linguistic extinction event. However, when the different Indo-European groups entered Europe, they incorporated lexical material from Europe’s original languages into their own vocabularies. 7 By integrating these “natural samples” of Pre-Indo-European speech, the original European linguistic and cultural landscape can partly be reconstructed and matched against the Anatolia and the Steppe hypotheses. My results reveal that Pre-Indo-European speech contains a clear Neolithic signature emanating from the Aegean, 8 and thus patterns with the prehistoric migration of Europe’s first farming populations. 9,10,11 These results also imply that Indo-European speech came to Europe following a later migration wave, and therefore favor the Steppe Hypothesis as a likely scenario for the spread of the Proto-Indo-Europeans. 12

who could've guessed that n/a was a filthy JEW?

not even n/a by his own testimony,

yet JEWS LIE,

so it's no surprise.

n/a doesn't just suck jewish cock, he is himself a dirty filthy JEW.

the guys here KNEW HIM, in one sense, http://s1.zetaboards.com/anthroscape/topic/3714086/1/

n/a WISHED they'd KNOWN him in another sense.

JUDAIZATION has worked with n/a. he's become a "useful idiot".

it's been going on since the Middle Ages.

he imagines that Eichmann must've given his jews an explanation for why he would kill them and in the terms and discourse of those jews.

until you yourself see the wisdom of leaving, your excellency.

the anglo-american ideology is a hurdle in the steeplechase to THE FINAL SOLUTION...THE FINAL

he's been mesmerized by the jews...so to speak.

he still imagines that UNIVERSALISM will vindicate him.

what're ya gonna do?

with the jews in all but blood like n/a?

needless to say,

n/a doesn't even know what he means by coherent.

in order to be "coherent", one must accept certain assumptions of the discourse yet at the same time be unaware of those assumptions.

that is, one must be a moron, like n/a.

i am aware of the assumptions.

n/a is not.

n/a said...

Hughgabe,

"n/a doesn't even know what he means by coherent"

I mean: most of your logic and many of your premises are shit.

Stop acting like a fucking faggot. I understand exactly what you're trying to communicate, I just don't care. Your streams of impaired consciousness are tedious, not oracular. I don't care about your thoughts on economics. It doesn't interest me that you were raised a Democrat. I don't care that you hate "hereditists". If I wanted to argue with someone about these things, I would not argue with you. I could easily come up with better arguments for your positions than you have. There's a huge gap between what you think you understand and what you actually understand, and you give no indication you're willing to learn.

But to the extent you are in favor of the continued existence of Americans of NW European ancestry, we are in agreement, as I already explained to you. I don't dislike you. I just think you're hilariously wrong that salvation will come from embracing Bernie Sanders and Steven J. Gould. But it's not something I'm going to debate here.


"he still imagines that UNIVERSALISM will vindicate him."

I don't need "vindication". I am, however, interested in understanding the world as it actually is. That's what this blog is about for me. Not advancing political objectives. I read and post about the things I do because I find them interesting, and will continue to do so. I've indulged you as a potentially mildly entertaining foil. But this is not going to continue much longer unless your shit gets less boring or less voluminous.

YOU CANNOT READ. LET ALONE UNDERSTAND. IT IS VERY EASY TO DISMISS ARGUMENTS OF ONE'S OPPONENTS WHICH ONE'S OPPONENTS HAVE NEVER MADE, NOR EVER WOULD MAKE.But it's not something I'm going to debate here.BECAUSE YOU'RE A FOOL.

the entire New World was doomed from the landing in the Bahamas.

America has always been shit.

there never was a golden age.

the jew kings are no worse than their gentile predecessors.

except,

that they are aliens. the raj may have been much better than than the permit raj. no doubt. but as the mahatma said, that's irrelevant.

wherever there is heterogeneity there is right wing politics. whwrever there is homogeneity it has disappeared. DIS-APPEARED.

it's a perversion just like the very idea of a multi-cultural/multi-ethnic country.

yet you persist in this perversion unaware of it as such.

pedophiles molest children.

conservatives molest the whole world.

and you so lack and introspection that you think what interests you is not an issue.

why does it interest you?

what is the reason?

just 'cause?

the reasons these things interest you

is...

an issue.

I KNOW THE REASONS.

AND THEY RESULT FROM DELUSION, IGNORANCE, AND MISUNDERSTANDINGS.
