    Default is Something wrong with the so-called ‘Yamnaya admixture’

    Something is very wrong with models based on the so-called ‘Yamnaya admixture’

    https://indo-european.eu/

    A new article by Leo S. Klejn tries to improve the Northern Mesolithic Proto-Indo-European homeland model of the Russian school of thought: The Steppe hypothesis of Indo-European origins remains to be proven, Acta Archaeologica, 88:1, 193–204.

    Abstract:

    Recent genetic studies have claimed to reveal a massive migration of the bearers of the Yamnaya culture (Pit-grave culture) to the Central and Northern Europe. This migration has supposedly lead to the formation of the Corded Ware cultures and thereby to the dispersal of Indo-European languages in Europe. The article is a summary presentation of available archaeological, linguistic, genetic and cultural data that demonstrates many discrepancies in the suggested scenario for the transformations caused by the Yamnaya “invasion” some 5000 years ago.

    I doubt there's anything wrong with the Kurgan theory. Sure, the frequency of some genetic components (Yamnaya or otherwise) might need some fine-tuning once more ancient DNA is released, and also there'll be some more clarity on which R1b clades spread Indo-European languages and which did not, but all in all, it's proven beyond the shadow of a doubt at this point, that all Indo-European languages came from the Pontic-Caspian steppe.

    Here's the full link to the site discussing this article:

    I doubt he's onto something here, anyway.

    In fact, they are not even the Europeans in strict sense, meaning European as in bearing the responsibility and understanding of European interests. Poland has always been an subordinate country, on one side sucking German dick, on the other side -- Russian one, some kind of "novice" europeans, who are full of inferiority complexes, hysteria and obsessity neuroses. This is also true for all Baltic countries
