Alright well prehistoric is inexact now that I think about it, but the
evidence does really seem to show U5a pre dating agruculture in Northwest
Europe. By dating the age of U5 it seems like it has been in Europe prior to
the last glaciation. The highest amount of diversity found in haplogroup U5
is in Scandinavia according to the Genographic project and that also seems
to say that it has been in Europe for quite a long time.
Maybe U5a did originate during the Mesolithic and then spread out from the
refuges in Southern Europe after the glaciers retreated.
