New research published Wednesday in the journal Nature suggests some of the region's earliest herders were drinking milk as they moved eastward. https://www.nature.com/articles/s41586-021-03798-4 Hardened dental plaque coating the ancient teeth of Bronze Age pastoralists suggests the emergence of dairying and milk-drinking coincided with a wave of migration across the Pontic-Caspian steppe. "When the data came in we were really blown away," senior author Nicole Boivin told UPI in an email. "We did not expect such a massive shift to milk consumption right at the time of a known massive human migration. But once we had our data, the correlation was too strong to ignore," said Boivin, a professor of archaeology at the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Human History in Germany. After carefully extracting samples of tartar, or dental calculus, researchers used sophisticated molecular analysis techniques to identify ancient proteins trapped in the hardened layers. The analysis

Exciting new paper on Steppe ancestry arrived in Europe. https://advances.sciencemag.org/content/7/35/eabi6941 Abstract Europe’s prehistory oversaw dynamic and complex interactions of diverse societies, hitherto unexplored at detailed regional scales. Studying 271 human genomes dated ~4900 to 1600 BCE from the European heartland, Bohemia, we reveal unprecedented genetic changes and social processes. Major migrations preceded the arrival of “steppe” ancestry, and at ~2800 BCE, three genetically and culturally differentiated groups coexisted. Corded Ware appeared by 2900 BCE, were initially genetically diverse, did not derive all steppe ancestry from known Yamnaya, and assimilated females of diverse backgrounds. Both Corded Ware and Bell Beaker groups underwent dynamic changes, involving sharp reductions and complete replacements of Y-chromosomal diversity at ~2600 and ~2400 BCE, respectively, the latter accompanied by increased Neolithic-like ancestry. The Bronze Age saw new

A new paper was released sampling a 7000 year old UK aurochs bone. The genome demonstrated that farmers in Great Britain and Ireland occasionally had introduced wild blood from native aurochs into their stock. https://genomebiology.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s13059-015-0790-2

https://twitter.com/Sulkalmakh have you seen this guys stuff before? He also does really good reconstructions, using the same method as you I believe

Nope. New to me.

Good for him. Glad that more decent reconstructions are coming out.

Your reconstructions are really helpful in understanding what our ancestors looked like. Thank you for creating them.

Thanks for your encouragement, I appreciate it.

Is there a way to follow your work outside of DA? I'll be leaving this website soon but not without following my personal favorite artists elsewhere. Do you have a blog or another social media outlet I could follow?
No sorry. I'm afraid I'm not great with social media or blogs.
Thanks for appreciating my works though. That really means a lot.
I'm glad it does, you deserve the recognition. I'm sorry I won't be able to follow your work in the future.
