1 question? ok maybe a couple.
Forgive me if I missed this piece of info, which atlantean population was used for said genetic comparisons. As far as I know there arent any.
And arent the basque geneticly unique amongst the europeans.
#2 In one recent genetic test on a random mongolian,(gobi desert dweller). It was found that they had strong genetic links with the people of the
north coast of the black sea, scythians, a well known indo-european group of people. The genetic study I refered to was done for a german
anthropologist, and they compared the dna taken from the grave of a female scythian, against that of a random mongolian girl. And not a "modern
mongolian" who goes into the city and has a motorcycle, but a mongolian "hillbilly", people who still lived the old ways in valley even mongolians
The researcher was studying the burial mounds of scythian warriors, some of whom were female and had found remains that had viable dna.
The documantary was very fascinating, the researcher, had made some very good discoveries in thier digs.
They had uncovered a great deal of weapons and armor, horse related regalia and other culturaly specific items.
If I remember correctly,she was taking a break from the dig on holiday in greece, when at a museum, she noticed a fresco that had a battle scene.
And this scene depicted a battle between some greek hero and the Amazons. In this scene the Amazon warrior is holding a shield with a very unique
A shield that she herself had uncovered in the grave of a female warrior..
WOW, how freaky is that, to see an item on a 2500 year old fresco that you yourself have just recently uncovered, a thousand miles away, from the
2800 year old grave of a female warrior .
The researcher went to mongolia simply because the horse nomad lifestyle was still practiced.
And when they just picked a remote family at random they came across a family that had 1 daughter that was a head taller than anyone else her age and
had blonde hair and blue eyes.
Subsequent dna testing proved this little blond mongolian girl was a direct decendant from the woman buried in the russian tomb.
Anyway I thought the aztec were what was left of the atlanteans
