Geneticists usually state that mitochondrial haplotype T came to the British Isles with the Vikings circa 800 AD. But the recent discovery of a skeletal sample from 1200 BC in the Hebrides blows that out of the water.

Not only that, there is one sample from Baalberge, Germany (3900-3450BC) that is T1a1.

Care to elaborate on the specific mention of Tuscany? I'm not sure what that place has to do with T1.

I think he said that quite a few years ago...I doubt if he thinks that any longer.

EDIT: Yeah, that was 2002. Otherwise known in population genetics as the stone age.

How do I delete this thread? May do a rewrite.

Is there a GED id for these. Some of these T1 samples might be from Bronze age in Hungary/Armenia etc... They are matching big segments to Indians. Might be later Saka immigrants into the Indo-Euro vedic people.
