Bronze Age Basque

On my father's side I am R1b1b2a1a2f*. A few years ago this was being called "R-L21*". I'm guessing the * is because the test hasn't been wholly finished...

23andme use the ISOGG2010 tree, at least as of last year. And their list of "references" stops at 2008. So, I've had to hit the interweb.

On the part of ancestor R1b1b2a1a2f, Moffat & Wilson in The Scots, A Genetic Journey wrote Now it appears that S145 (L21) also travelled along these (Atlantic) trading routes. The marker probably originated in southern France or northern Iberia and people carrying it came to Ireland and western Scotland. This was not a wave of migration but a series of small movements over time, probably in the millennium between 2,500 BC and 1,500 BC.

Anyway, that explains why I'm getting hits for that signature in Scotland, Ireland, Rheinland, and northern Spain and Portugal.

UPDATE 2017: see now.
