K = 14 admixture analysis of Bronze Age German warrior genomes

Below is a plot for a K = 14 admixture analysis that includes genomes from a Bronze Age battlefield at the archeological site of Weltzin, in the Tollense valley, in northeastern Germany. The table above the plot gives some information for these samples.

The Tollense valley warriors are genetically similar to the Late Neolithic Nordic samples, the German Bell Beaker samples, and the Unetice samples.

The one Tollense valley sample dated to 2960 BC is similar to other Middle and Late Neolithic samples from Western and Central Europe.

WEZ57 Bronze Age 1250
WEZ58 Bronze Age 1250
WEZ59 Bronze Age 1250
WEZ61 Bronze Age 1250
WEZ63 Bronze Age 1250
WEZ64 Bronze Age 1250

    Why don’t you add ID numbers to the samples on your charts?
    It is interesting to compare admixture with other data like PCA, statistics, etc. for this we need ID numbers.

    Good morning,

    thank you Genetiker for your work.

    Did you see this paper? If they released the raw data, probably it would be possible to see the Y-DNA haplogroups of the other 4 males.

  3. Can you take a look at the mtDNA?

    ID numbers can be written with the right side of the charts.
