Yeah, we already know that there was a mixed West and East Eurasian population in the Tarim Basin carrying loads of R1a. But the mention of R1b in ancient (Bronze Age?) China is something new.

It would be if it actually existed. The actual Google translation is as given by Dienekes: Ancient Y chromosomes from China

Adding R1b was Gioiello little joke.

Some translations contain r1a and some don't... http://www.kaogu.net.cn/bbs/dispbbs.asp ... 727&skin=1

The link above suggests that only m173 was tested. Either way I don't think any new r1a has been verified, but new m173 might have. I should be able to fine out more by indirect methods.

Thanks, I was wrong.

But polako has overplayed the results. We still only have ydna from likely IE cultures for which the samples date to 2k bce or later.
