Copper Age Iberian men ousted by Russians

Eldorado

Most striking was an influx of new people during the later Copper Age, otherwise known as the Beaker period because of the ubiquitous presence in burials of large drinking vessels, from about 4,500 years ago.  By the Early Bronze Age, 500 years later, these newcomers represented about 40% of Iberia’s genetic pool – but virtually 100% of their male lineages.

This suggests that the newcomers were mainly men, and that – somehow – they all but replaced the men living there previously, whilst the local women survived the takeover.

It was called the Proto Indo-European invasion and evidence of it has been found all over Europe and in the U.K.
