    How many people are tested? Why do you think that Orthodox Serbians have more R1a than the minorities (hungarians have alot of R1a for example)

  2. Whatever says:

    How many males are tested? Can you tell me why ortodox population of serbia have higher R1a than Serbia as whole?

    it is absolutely wrong to set an absolute correlation between haplogroups and ethnoses. The reason is that haplogroups are tens of thousands of years older than ethnicity (ethnos is a culturological, not a biologica terml). First of all, I am referring to the attemption of connection of the E1b1 carriers with the ancient Balkan population. Contemporary anthropological research indicates that the Balkan population has not changed significantly since ancient (and even neolithic) times to modern times (see research dedicated to Lepenski Vir and other localities). It is more probable that in the process of ethnogenesis of contemporary south Slovene ethnicity there was a population with a similar distribution of haplotypes. On the other hand, on Balkan origins of some Slavic tribes also points an early medieval chronicles (Nostrov’s letopis, for example), as well as many etymological studies.

    This article is not attendibile, I think it’s for make Serbian look more Slavic that is not so realistic because they are in Slavic heritage similar to Bulgarian and Macedonian.

      Ahhh i dont think so, this can be just one study showing more than unusual. R1a among Serbs is like 18-20% usually, 25 isnt a big difference. Bulgarians have some turks and gyspies counted in their tests so % among them is higher too. Having slighly more R1a wouldnt suprice me because Serbia is still northern compared to Bulgaria and we dont have see (Romans and romanised pre-slavic population were more concentrated on sea) We have the most common hertage with croats and bosniaks but pretty similar to bulgarian one too. One thing i have to ask autor, how many Serbs have u tested?

    As far as I remember the Byzantine Emperor Constantine P (Xth cent AD) described the Serbian name as coming from “servula’ or slave, the same as the sandals.

    The Vlachs were the Kings,Lords and Church officials of all the Slavs.
    After the Turks took over the Balkans only the Vlachs had a status the rest of the Slavs were treated as slaves.
    If there were Vlachs described as Shepherds that doesn’t mean that all of them were.
    And remember, one of the Byzantine Emperor was a Shepherd.

    This text is, in a word, bad. Imaginative, but bad. It has very little to do with science and truth.

  8. Fascinating! So what happens with the genetic contribution that was suppose to result from the “North India ie Southern regions of the Himalayan Mountains”.
