Who said L11 origin was in Switzerland ?
I think people pointed 2 main spots in Switzerland and Holland (+ British isles , considered by Bernard as a secondary event).
About data, I would like to repeat here that I questioned a while ago about 23andME sampling. 23andME has been testing for both L51 (M412) and L11 on a very large population and a map ( no names needed) would be very welcome. We need publicly available data on a larger scale.
Back to Myres et al. , the only good sampling and testing so far for L51 and L11. The main result was : very few L51* and no particular place, but rather in eastern Europe. L11 was showing the spots mentioned above.
My understanding has always been that L11 origin was somewhere in eastern Europe and that the spots are 2 steps in the way to western Europe. P312 fate was really unclear in Myres et al.
Then, as you pointed it, we have the problem of dating. Myres et al. do not get along the timing generally discussed on this list where R-P312 is seen as a fairly recent group whose expansion wasn't before 4300 BP.
I discussed before on this same thread why I think these dates may mean that the P312 group underwent a period with relatively poor growth rate before expanding, but I can't get a proof for that scenario.
