    DNA from German Corded Ware Burials

    Ancient DNA, Strontium isotopes, and osteological analyses shed light on social and kinship organization of the Later Stone Age

    Quote:
    In 2005 four outstanding multiple burials were discovered near Eulau, Germany. The 4,600-year-old graves contained groups of adults and children buried facing each other. Skeletal and artifactual evidence and the simultaneous interment of the individuals suggest the supposed families fell victim to a violent event. In a multidisciplinary approach, archaeological, anthropological, geochemical (radiogenic isotopes), and molecular genetic (ancient DNA) methods were applied to these unique burials. Using autosomal, mitochondrial, and Y-chromosomal markers, we identified genetic kinship among the individuals. A direct child-parent relationship was detected in one burial, providing the oldest molecular genetic evidence of a nuclear family. Strontium isotope analyses point to different origins for males and children versus females. By this approach, we gain insight into a Late Stone Age society, which appears to have been exogamous and patrilocal, and in which genetic kinship seems to be a focal point of social organization.

    Ydna results: Three men all of them R1a
    Quote:
    The
    consensus haplotype of the three individuals (based on most
    complete profile) gave two exact matches in in an European
    population sample of 11,213 haplotypes in a set of 100 populations
    (as of July 2008, Release ‘‘23’’ from 2008–01-15 14:44:25):
    one individual from Poland (1/939 from Gdansk) and one from
    Russia (1/48 from Tambov).

    Mtdna:

    K1b
    K1b
    U5b
    K1b
    I
    H
    X2
    X2
    K1a2

    So Corded Ware people were mostly R1a.

    I'm wondering, is this the first time Corded Ware DNA has been tested?

    Most probably, yes. Especially y chromosome.
