The Y-SNP calls for the Grotte du Bichon genome are here. The Grotte du Bichon sample is from the skeleton of a hunter-gatherer found in the Grotte du Bichon, a cave in the Jura Mountains of Switzerland. The skeleton was dated to 13,560–13,770 BP, during the late Upper Paleolithic.
The calls show that the Grotte du Bichon hunter-gatherer belonged to Y haplogroup pre-I2a1a2a1-L1287. This is the same haplogroup that was found in the Mesolithic Swedish hunter-gatherer Motala 9, the three Swedish hunter-gatherers Ajvide 52, 58, and 70 of the Pitted Ware culture, and the two Hungarian samples KO1 and NE7, from the Neolithic Körös and Lengyel cultures.
Below is a description of the Grotte du Bichon hunter-gatherer:
The human skeleton was determined to be of a young male, 20–23 years of age, of the Cro-Magnon type. According to the cranio-facial architecture, it was characterized by classical cranio-facial disharmony, i.e. a relatively long skull associated with a low face and sub-rectangular eye-sockets, which are quite typical of the time period. The young man weighed a little over 60 kg and stood 1.64 m tall. Although of a relatively slender build, muscle attachments showed him to have been a strong runner and well adapted to mountainous terrain. His upper limbs show a high degree of asymmetry, indicative of preferential use of the right arm. Isotopic studies of carbon and nitrogen fractionations indicated a largely meat based terrestrial diet.
In this comment from April 7th, 2014, I said that I thought that the Aurignacians belonged to Y haplogroup I, and that haplogroup I people originally had the eurymorphic (short-and-wide-faced) cranial morphology of the Cro-Magnon 1 skull, and that the Gravettians belonged to Y haplogroup R, and that haplogroup R people originally had the leptomorphic (long-and-narrow-faced) cranial morphology of the Sungir 1 and Predmost 3 skulls.
The Grotte du Bichon genome shows that I was right about the original cranial morphology of haplogroup I people. I’m confident that a Gravettian genome will show that I was also right about the original cranial morphology of haplogroup R people.
