    Post Re: Overview of the West European Mesolithics

    I know for a fact that Iberians were the ones that populated most of the western europe, just after the Ice age, that is allmoust certain with present day genetics and data...

    even archeology testify that!
    the megalithic era (like the stonehenge example) started in Iberia, not in another place...

    The problem with archeology is that ideas travel more quickly than people, sometimes it's only a new culture, not new people!
    So again it's a lot subjective!

    The visual is not only subjective but there is also great biases, prejudices and stereotypes that we all carry. One can easily test people's real knowledge, including professional anthropologists, and this is obviously even more true for the opinions of commoners.

    As for your comment on Iberia, typological and genetical (and serological) studies showed that the majority component is derived more from Palaeolithic Palaeo-Atlantid than more Neolithic as towards Greece. R1 is high in Iberia:
