You should first remind yourself of that fact, since your entire
oeuvre is based on making elaborate links between archaeological
events and TMRCAs of living men.
Also, you are wrong on practical grounds for this E-V13, as the
haplotype found in Neolithic Spain has identical matches in
present-day populations, and there is no reason to think that it
belongs to an extinct branch of E-V13 that did not contribute to
present-day E-V13 men.

I thought that everyone here understands that by measuring TMRCA we identify the timespan to a SURVIVED common ancestor, who might very likely pass a population bottleneck and his DNA was carried on to the present time. By studying excavated bones we measure a timespan to an actual person who might likely died well before that population bottleneck.
