I noticed that on Ancestry people from the Iberian Peninsula and specifically Portugal score high amounts of Italy/Greece or Europe South, while on other calculators the Eastern Med components are minimized and Western Med components are increased and they score much higher Iberian Peninsula.

Iím assuming both components relate to some older farming components in the region. My question is why Ancestry seems to be able to differentiate between these two Mediterranean influences and is it justified for that region? Also, why are other calculators minimizing this possible Eastern Med influence?
