View Full Version : Barbed Wire Beaker cradle of R1b U106 and....

A few years ago David of Eurogenes already detected it:

"I may have discovered an interesting pattern in the Allentoft et al. data. It seems that during the Late Neolithic/Bronze Age, Scandinavia was populated by two somewhat different populations; one characterized by Y-Chromosome haplogroup R1b and a genome-wide genetic structure typical of present-day Northwestern Europeans, and another by Y-Chromosome haplogroup R1a and a relatively more eastern genome-wide genetic profile."

Recent research like that of Olaide (2017) reveals this further, Quiles (2017) gives in his excellent essay a good summary:
" The best candidate for an expansion of the Pre-Germanic dialect of North-West Indo- European into Scandinavia is the Barbed Wire Beaker culture of the Low Countries and Northern Lowland (Kristiansen 2009), which would later show a period of change (Figure 16) starting ca. 1850 BC until its complete cultural change evident after ca. 1500 BC (Fokkens and Harding 2013), into the Elp culture (ca. 1800-800 BC). Samples of haplogroup R1b1a1a2a1a1-U106 are found quite late, in the Nordic Late Neolithic at Lilla Beddinge ca. 2150 BC (Allentoft et al. 2015), and in Oostwoud ca. 1881-1646 BC (Olalde et al. 2017), suggesting a connection of lineages between Jutland and the Low Countries. Modern population analysis supports this connection, showing that R1b1a1a2a1a1-U106 distribution peaks today precisely around the Netherlands."

Ergo the Barbed Wire Beaker culture is the cradle of R1b U106!

Leaves still the question were did the progenitor of R1b U106 lived? And who caused the founder effect of R1b U106 in the Low Countries and Northern Lowland? Eastern Bell Beaker/Unetice...?
