Mongolian yDNA from almost 2000 years ago was successfully recovered several
The haplotypes recovered are listed in Table 2. The one with
DYS385a,b=11,14 is clearly R1a, demonstrating that about 2000 years ago, R1a
had gotten as far east as Mongolia.
The one with DYS385a,b=15,17 looks like a Q, according to Athey's predictor.
