The Basques are a unique population in Western Europe; their language is not related to any Indo-European language. Furthermore, genetically speaking, they have been considered to have distinct features. However, until now there was no conclusive study to explain the origin of their singularity.

Now, an international research team led by UPF has confirmed that the Basques' genetic uniqueness is the result of genetic continuity since the Iron Age, characterized by periods of isolation and scarce gene flow, and not its external origin in respect to other Iberian populations.

I find it curious the absence of Basque users of Basque parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, great-great-grandparents posting their results in the forums or at least I have never seen it.

Millions of people talking about the Basques and not a single Basque with basques parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, great-great-grandparents publishing their results, it's weird isn't it?
