Dear Peter

There is a very big difference between doubting that modern and ancient
genetic diversity was the same, which is a reasonable doubt, and
asserting/assuming that you can describe and explain what the difference is
without any actual relevant data.

Best Regards

As to your caution against daring to examine momentarily the potential for
the Roman era Y-mosaic to differ from modern Italian regional distribution..
I cannot emphasis enough that it would be quite foolish indeed to find
comfort in a assumption that the Roman or Etruscan era regional distribution
largely mirrored todays.
