Abstract

Where did the Europeans’ ancestors come from, and when? Are modern Europeans the direct descendants of the paleolithic huntergatherers who settled Europe some 45 000 years ago, or do they mainly derive from the Neolithic farmers who spread from the Levant 10 000 years ago? One would expect archaeologists to discuss these questions, but the last few decades demonstrate that the studies of modern genetic diversity can provide crucial relevant evidence.
