This study aims to investigate the biological relationship among six Neolithic individuals (4200–3400 cal BC) from the Can Gambús-1 necropolis (Barcelona, Spain) as well as, their possible mitochondrial ancestry.
The aim of the present study was to compare the mtDNA haplotypes (haplogroups H and W) obtained from 2 young females buried within a Neolithic circular enclosure (rondel) with the results of the scientific studies on Neolithic and Mesolithic skeletal material.
Here we report the complete mtDNA of an archaic femur from the Hohlenstein–Stadel (HST) cave in southwestern Germany. HST carries the deepest divergent mtDNA lineage that splits from other Neanderthals ∼270,000 years ago, providing a lower boundary for the time of the putative mtDNA introgression event.
Here we present the first and oldest complete mitochondrial sequences from Sardinia, dated back to 10,000 yBP.
Results have been obtained from 16 males from the EN cemeteries Lokomotiv and Shamanka II representing haplogroups K, R1a1 and C3, and 20 males from the LN-EBA Ust’-Ida and Kurma XI cemeteries representing haplogroups Q, K and unidentified SNP (L914).
