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 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 […]

R1b & Yamnaya Culture History

Yamnaya Genetics: DNA from the remains of nine individuals associated with the Yamna culture from Samara Oblast and Orenburg Oblast has been analyzed. The remains have been dated to 2700–3339 BCE. Y-chromosome sequencing revealed that one of the individuals belonged to haplogroup R1b1-P25 (the subclade could not be determined), one individual belonged to haplogroup R1b1a2a-L23 […]

R1b entering Europe

When R1b people entered Europe and brought the Bronze Age, “They replaced the old Neolithic farming cultures with their completely new perception of family, property and personhood”. Source: Professor Kristian Kristiansen of the University of Gothenburg. The re-writing of the genetic map [of Europe] began in the early Bronze Age, about 5,000 years ago. From the steppes in […]
