I have tried to run with your dating or at least post-Mesolithic dating for R1b and explained what the archaeological possibilities are I see within this new proposed time frame. I would still feel that a MRCA for such a big chunk of the western European population in the mid-later Bronze Age requires a higher degree of archaeologically invisible processes in the later Bronze Age and Iron Age than I find convincing but it has made me consider an early Neolithic date much more seriously than I ever have before and I have even dabbled with the Copper Age Beaker culture although that seems more of a long shot. With these periods in mind, I was wondering what the original justification of the 3 times fudge factor used by some was. Why did they feel the need to so this? Is there a chance that a smaller (say 1.25 or 1.5 rather than 3 times) fudge factor may be more justifiable?
