    Interesting. Does the term "Corded" equal "Corded Ware", the cranial type of the Corded Ware culture?

    Yes, that's where the name stems from.

    Well, that fits to the picture. The Corded Ware culture (which was supposedly proto-Baltic) was an important component in Finnish ethnogenesis. According to some linguists, it's impact on Finland almost changed our language to Indo-European (just shortly after we supposedly had changed our language to Finno-Ugrian). And we still have loads of very old Baltic loan words.

    Of course it's always more or less speculative to associate ancient migrations with archaeological cultures, and many have questioned the assumed Corded Ware migration claiming that it was just a culture. But if there's a recognizable Corded Ware type, that actually would make sense. Unfortunately there's no skeletal findings of that age in Finland.

    First I thought Finland and Estonia in the poll were practical jokes, but that makes us actually serious competitors.

    Re: Which nation is most similar to original Indo-Europeans?

    Lingually, at least, Lithuania; since Lithuanian is one of the oldest/most preserved Indo-European tongues, that's what I chose.

    I've taken a look at Baltic tongues, they're quite interesting. The region socially and demographically is - I'm willing to bet - also quite favorable over Western Europe [these days], with a lot of traditional practices still alive. I guess all these factors all add up to the choice I made.

    Also, a language is very telling of a people.

    I'd say nomadic Tajiks or Pashtuns, IIRC the highest percentages of R1a is among Altaic people in the Pamirs or somewhere. From among those nations listed I'd pick Russia (but only the South-Western area).

    It is very likely that proto-Europids, the Upper-Paleolithic peoples did not speak proto-IE languages, but some other language.

    Baltic languages are close to Sanskrit and this is especially the case with Lithuanian which is more archaic language than Latvian.
    Lithuanian and Russian with dialects are the closest - moreover, Indians call them "living ancestors of Indo-European languages".
    Russian is more archaic in grammar, both Russian and Lithuanian are extremely archaic in vocabulary (the ancient vocabulary is common).
    It's possible to create a text in Sanskrit, that will be fully comprehensible for a native Russian-speaker (I've read such a text).
