A tomb complex?? Kind of like the subject of the OP. Seems when ancient tomb complexes are opened in China, they find caucasian mummys.

I stand by what i said: they won't open the Mausoleum of the First Qin Emperor because they are concerned a caucasian is in there.

Eastern Iranians (Scythian-Samaritans).

They were Eastern Iranians. Not "Northern Europeans" 

Russia shares a border with China. Russians are Northern Europians. Russians are caucasians.

Why would they be concerned? The Hans Chinese are firmly in charge of the area now nobodies going to take it away from them. LOL

 

It like some extreme right Japanese don't like the idea that the early emperors of Japan were probably Korean. They might get all butt hurt about it but it doesn't change reality one bit.

Russians moved into there later. After they drove out the Finnic Peoples.

Fantastic were finding the Deniscovians and Hobbits and confirmation of Neanderthal DNA in much of HSS - but not all.

The point again is that there could be a caucasian in the ancient tomb of Qin because ancient caucasian mummys have been found in China.

Yeah one of the book I wrote was set during the time of the Russian invasion of 'Independent Tartary or Central Asia. The Russian sweep east was going on at the same time the Americans were sweeping west.

The DNA evidence suggests otherwise.

So while interesting it wouldn't be particularly earth shattering. Descriptions of him and his men sound asian.

His men were Asian. He could have been caucasian. 

The idea is a there may have been a caucasian ruler of the Asian Chinese.

Before you get all sweaty and over excited may I suggest you read:

Records of the Grand Historian, written by Sima Qian

A Chinese historian of said man.......

... starting with the First Emperor of Qin and progressing through the first emperors of the Han dynasty.

"The dominant haplogroup," they write, "in the Xiaohe people was the East Eurasian lineage C" which corresponds with a likely origin in South Siberia. But there were also "two West Eurasian mtDNA haplogroups H and K." In looking more closely at the lineages and mutations, however, Li and colleagues noted that several of the samples had mutations that are either rare in modern people or are not found in modern gene banks.

That was the whole purpose of destroying everything during the occupation. The Yayoi did come from Korea. As with sword smithing.

Tocharians. The Muslim expansion wiped them out.

These people were "Cumans" a mix between Turkic and Iranian. The red hair is from pigment loss after death. It was black.
