    P1, Ancestral to Q, R1a found in Ganj Dareh Iran


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Ganj Dareh (Persian: تپه گنج دره; "Treasure Valley" in Persian,[1] or "Treasure Valley Hill" if tepe/tappeh (hill) is appended to the name) is a Neolithic settlement in the Iranian Kurdistan portion of Iran. It is located in the east of Kermanshah, in the central Zagros Mountains.[1]


    The early village site of Ganj Darreh near Kermanshah
    First discovered in 1965, it was excavated by Canadian archaeologist, Philip Smith during the 1960s and 1970s, for four field seasons.[1][2]

    The oldest settlement remains on the site date back to ca. 10,000 years ago,[3] and have yielded the earliest evidence for goat domestication in the world.[4][5][6]

    The remains have been classified into five occupation levels, from A, at the top, to E.[7]
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Well this is certainly cool and interesting and potentially insightful. Looks like Pre- R1a was around in Neolithic Settlements in the Middle East, would this change our current perspective of the Y Haplogroup P migration pattern? Though it certainly wasn't a majority.
