Dienekes, what is your current opinion , in light of the recent ancient results, about the intrusion of southwest Asian DNA into Europe duing the Bronze Age,you earlier spoke of, especially compared to other bloggers (eg Eurogenes), who rather see a steppe-north eastern intrusion ?

Regarding the study of Skoglund e.a. They have mtDNA HV0 found in Pitted Ware remains. That is interesting. HV0 has never been found in Neolithic sites.

The study states that one HV0 is found, but the table states two are found.
