Different genetic components in the Norwegian population revealed by the analysis of mtDNA and Y chromosome polymorphisms
Thanks Cormac, great find.
But it only shows the ancestors of the Scandinavian people came through northern Germany and Doggerland.
What is there about the Picts, btw?
I agree, the ancestors of the Doggerlanders must have come from somewhere, but they settled in Doggerland for millennia, and then moved on after their land got flooded.
So yes, their ancestors may have had genetic links with people in the Dniepr-Don Valley area, but that doesn't mean they didn't change (genetically) over the millennia.
From what I gathered on the internet, they stayed there long enough, created their own culture, changed genetically to some degree, and then moved on, forced by the circumstances.
"Archaeological evidences have suggested that the core of the oldest populations colonising Scandinavia 11 000 –12 000 thousand years ago came from the present Germany. They probably went through the Jutland and the now submerged Doggerland, and then headed northward via the ice-free coastal area of Norway."
I have been talking ad nauseum about the Doggerlanders as they were at 6100 BC/8100 BP, and that's almost 3000 years later than the upper limit (11,000 BC) of the time-span in the text I quoted from your post.
