K = 12 admixture analysis of prehistoric Portuguese genomes

Below is a plot for a K = 12 admixture analysis that includes 10 genomes from prehistoric Portugal. The table above the plot gives some information for these samples.

The Middle Neolithic and Copper Age samples are similar to samples of the same periods from Spain, being made up mostly of the light blue early European farmer component, but also having a significant amount of the plain blue European hunter-gatherer component.

The plot shows that, unlike the earlier samples, and contrary to the admixture analysis that appeared in the academic paper on these samples, the Middle Bronze Age samples did have some of the pine green Caucasus-related component.
