Subject: [yDNAhgI] Age of I2a1 n' stuff

Hello List,



I need a break from the flood of I1 stuff and Dora's inability to subscribe to the Haplogroup I list.



Dora, send an e-mail to and type Subscribe in the subject line and body of the message. This should get you in.

I have a question for Ken Nordtvedt.

Ken, I just downloaded and printed your latest Rescaled Haplogroup I Tree. The arrowhead for I2a1 is at approximately 9,000-8,500 years ago. In one of our recent private mailings you told me:

"I don't think I have tmrcas for various clades of I2a1 as old as 9000 years. I thought they were more like 6000 years?


I do seem to have a pretty old split between L160+ and L160- population. I'll look at that again."

Have you had a chance to look at the L160+ - L160- again?

As we've talked about before, on the basis of circumstantial evidence, I suspect that I2a1 is considerably older than 6,000 years. Of course, I can't prove it but consider it well worth investigating.

Wil
