    Oops! Sorry. I misread your U3b2a. I thought it was U5b3...

    Very educational, but apparently you have to sign in first.

    I'm U3a, not many of us U3 folk out there, does get a bit lonely , what is the best guess on how U3a/b came to the British Isles?, is it Celtic, Anglo-Saxon or Viking?

    It looks kind of Neolithic in Europe, although i don't think there's enough of it about to tell when it came specifically to the British Isles?

    It is quite frustrating, I think there could be some kind of indication based on U3a being found in a Early medieval Danish grave, so maybe a Danish Viking female coming to East Anglia in my case.

    As far as I have read about U3b and especially my U3b2a maternal line, the HG came up from the Levant or that general region, and mostly moved in a north then west arc into middle and west Europe. This sits well with me, as my maternal line is anchored along the Rhine, and into northern Italy. My closest "matches" seem to be from areas north and south in the major river valleys of Europe - the Rhine, Danube, etc., and it is easy to imagine why this would be the case. If I had matches in the UK, I'd be assuming they were "imported" with the Roman invasion into Britain as slaves and camp followers, or with the Viking raiders, not forgetting sea traders. But it could also be that some moved into Britain well before all of that, with the earliest arrivals of hunter gatherers. There are not many U3b2a 'ers registered so far, so it hard to get a better idea (as a non scientific lay person).

    Although my mother was born in central Italy and I have found over 100 ancestors, all in central Italy, in civil and church documents, surprizingly her heatmap shows the strongest concentration in the most northern part of Europe.
    Im new at this and wonder if its a mistake!
