a discussion of things brown….
How’s it going?
It wasn’t too cold until recently. I imagine it’s warmer in Austin than the upper midwest.

Question – do we have any material culture now from Indo-Aryan graves used for genetic samples? Things like clothing, grave goods, statues etc? I know we have some such sampels for Andronovo, but was curious for Indo-Aryans as well. On that same note, are there any physical reconstructions from remains?
Indo-Aryans in South Asia? The 2018/2019 paper/s got samples from Swat Gandhara grave culture. You can look up info on the material culture if you want to. Although there is a chance that they may not have been Indo-Aryans.
Sweet! I could only see the genetic component. Do you know I I would find this information>
Pakistan Aligrama, Artkotkila, Barikot, Butkara, Godara, Katelai, Leobanr and Udegram- all IA (Iron age) not the H (historic) samples.
from now on jai sri ram will also be as legit as bharat mata ki jai.
So this looks like a study that indicates that rising sea levels moved an Orang Asli like group to move back into South Asia. Would this indicate that AASI’s relationship to the Andamanese (Closer to Burma than India) isn’t due to splitting off from common ancestry, but actual paleolithic SE Asian admixture?
Inferring that stuff from modern samples instead of incorporating ancient DNA is messy. Need to wait for AASI DNA from South Asia to check that hypothesis.
How accurate is G25 for caste/regional distances?
