    K1a10a from the Neolithic in Britain

    K1a10a has been found to be much older than estimated from living examples.

    A skeleton found in Raschoille Cave near Glenshellach Road, Oban Scotland had mtDNA K1a10a and was dated to 3632-3378 BC, or approx. 5,455 years ago.

    Thus, K1a10a has been in Britain since at least the early/mid Neolithic Era.

    Also, K1a10a is a survivor of the major population replacement in Britain by the Beaker people during the early Bronze Age.

    Would you say that is the source of most/all K1a10a in Britain today? And if not that then other Neolithic Northern Europeans?

    Yes, K1a10a seems to be native to Britain/Ireland. I can't find any modern cases on the continent, except for Norway and Sweden.
