    Genetic Estimation of North African Blood in Europe

    "Moors and Saracens in Europe: estimating the medieval North African male legacy in southern Europe"

    To investigate the male genetic legacy of the Arab rule in southern Europe during medieval times, we focused on specific Northwest African haplogroups and identified evolutionary close STR-defined haplotypes in Iberia, Sicily and the Italian peninsula.

    Our results point to a higher recent Northwest African contribution in Iberia and Sicily in agreement with historical data, southern Italian regions known to have experienced long-term Arab presence also show an enrichment of Northwest African types.

    Nah, every now and then such studies pop up in the medias, f.e.:

    So we're part Neanderthal. What now?

    Just search the forum for the other topics, I think to remember articles concerning the Cromagnon stuff

    I'm surprised at the results for Spain.

    For Spain-
    #21 Andalucians- (the bottom tip of Spain) has only 5.4% Moorish influence.
    #17 Cantabria- (far north of Spain) has 18.6% Moorish influence!
    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    Do any of you know why this occured? Maybe the Moor Army decided to live in Cantabria during their Spanish conquest?

    Italy seems much more understandable-
    It seems the majority of the North African mixture is at the ankle of the boot (around 5%) and Sicily (7.5%) and interestingly negligible influence at toe and heel of the boot itself (0 and 1%)- not what I exepected but certainly understandable.

    Th southern region of Spain suffered an ethnic cleansing.

    The Muslim Expulsion from Spain is one of the parts of Spain's history with more grey areas.

    In Portugal and Spain moorish conversos and moorish slaves were used for farming so in some isolated villages you can still find some moors that weren't racially speaking white washed.

    But the Iberian romantic nationalists will never admit that and will stay in denial, i posted this on other forums and they started with the nordicist acusations and questioning the credibility of the study.
