    New study about Tunisian Arabs and Berbers

    This is a new study which focus on Southern Tunisian populations. There are some interesting new samples. Especially the R‘Baya samples look very interesting because they seem to derive a majority of their ancestry from Arabian populations.

    Am I reading that correctly? They are more Arabian than Yemenis?

    Yeah they seem to have retained significant Arabian ancestry. Southern Tunisian Arabs in general retained higher Arabian ancestry according to the study.

    I always figured the Eurasian back migration was concentrated along the coast. (Did they bring any ydnas besides E though?). On a related note is there any DNA from Moorish period Spain and North Africa?
