    Europe's first farmers carried significant Iranian-related ancestry

    From David Reich's new book Who We Are and How We Got Here:

    We also found farmers from the Peloponnese in southern Greece who lived around six thousand years ago and may have derived part of their ancestry from a different source population in Anatolia - a population that descended more from Iranian-related populations than was the case in northwestern Anatolian farmers who were likely a source population for the rest of Europe's farmers. The first farming in Europe was practiced in the Peloponnese and the nearby island of Crete by people who did not use pottery.
