DF27 in relation to R1b-P312

DF27 has no known phylogenetic equivalents at this time. This implies that the first DF27+ male was born not long after the P312+ most recent common ancestor. The P312 ancestor could easily have been a great-grandfather or even closer in relation to the first DF27+ male.

From R1b to R1b-DF27 and beyond

Y-DNA Haplogroup R1b-DF27: The Bronze Age started in Mesopotamian and helped spread ~7,000 years ago in R1b1a areas between the Black Sea and Caspian Sea, which fueled a rapid expansion into Europe, replacing the existing Iron Age farming cultures… (The Black Sea flooded-in ~10,000 years ago when the Mediterranean Sea rose rapidly [see UNESCO study, 2009]) R1b consisted of […]

R1b  (aka M343)… (formed 22,400 years ago) > M269 (aka R1b1a2)… (formed 15,200 years ago) >> P312 (formed 6,000 years ago) >>> L21 (formed 5,800 years ago) >>> U152 >>> DF19 >>> DF27 (formed ~4600 YBP / […]

Iberian DF27 – ~2000 BCE

The Gascon & Iberian branch (DF27) The Bronze Age did not appear in Iberia until 1800 BCE, and was mostly confined to the cultures of El Argar and Los Millares in south-east Spain, with sporadic sites showing up in Castile by 1700 BCE and in Extremadura and southern Portugal by 1500 BCE. These Early Bronze […]

Z196, in its derived state, is a deletion, not a mutation like most others. (positions 21033704 and 21033705?) Source: Stephen Parrish

R1b Map

R1b is the most common haplogroup in Western Europe, reaching over 80% of the population in Ireland, the Scottish Highlands, western Wales, the Atlantic fringe of France, the Basque country and Catalonia. It is also common in Anatolia and around the Caucasus, in parts of Russia and in Central and South Asia. Besides the Atlantic […]
