Thanks for all the details on that very ancient Iberian DNA. It seems a
little presumptuous (on some researcher's part), however, to call those
people "Basques"--does it not? If DNA evidence suggests little relation
between these ancient remains and modern Basques, then what evidence is
there to suggest that they were, in fact, progenitors of the Basques
(other than geography)?
