I-M253 is a branch on the paternal tree of humanity. The first male to belong to this line lived over 25,000 years ago. He was likely born during the late paleolithic to hunter-gatherers who traveled the open grassy parts of Eurasia.
Most members of this lineage alive today have a much more recent origin. They trace their ancestry to a small number of lines that lived during the Bronze Age in Europe.
