I have just uploaded a new working draft of the third version of the Indo-European demic diffusion model.
In this new version I have added more information published recently, I have updated the maps – especially the one on Palaeolithic migrations -, I have added information on Sredni Stog and its potential role in developing the Corded Ware culture and most likely language, and I have corrected certain parts that have become obsolete, especially after the latest version (19 Sept. 2017) of Mathieson et al. (2017).
It can be read or downloaded at:
- The official Wiki collaborative website indo-european.info
- Download PDF v.3.5 (78.1MB), from indo-european.info, the official download site
- Academia.edu (v. 3.5)
- ResearchGate (v. 3.5)
Included is my first sketch of the genetic history of Europe, as I interpret it in light of Genetic research (especially from outputs of qpGraph published to date), but also Archaeology (and, to some extent, Linguistics).
I have also taken this opportunity to upload some drafts I had been preparing in September while working on the Third Edition, that I have sadly not been able to complete as I would have wanted to. The drafts are posted in the section Human Ancestry. I post them as they are, in the hope that they can help others.
