I'm familiar with its general spread, and some umbrella terms like Germanic, Kurgan, Proto-Indo-European used to identify it. I also know it took part in the Battle Axe Culture. However, where has the oldest remains with Z283 been discovered?

I'm only a few weeks away from my Y67 results at Ftdna. Curious to see if I'm still placed in Z283 only. Probably early January until I receive my Yelite. Interested whether it will confirm LivingDNA's assignment to Z283*

If I'm not mistaken, the oldest Z283 samples we have so far are a couple of ~4,500 year-old individuals from Denmark and Estonia (associated with the Corded Ware culture).

Oh, so the oldest was found there. Interesting. I thought Central Asia, because that's what LivingDNA says. But I couldn't even find anything in my search. Thanks for clarifying that.
