The Clan

PostThu Jul 20, 2017 11:22 am

A tale about life in prehistoric times. Rich blend of imagination and information
about everything from plants that were used for medicine to the rituals and taboos
of Neanderthal man. It is also about Ayla, a little girl who is orphaned when her
parents are killed in an earthquake.

At the dawn of Mankind there were the Neanderthals. During the long Ice Age they
lived in caves scattered across Europe and the Near East. Then around 35,000 years
ago a new People appeared, the Cro-Magnon. For a brief moment in time, these two
groups shared the stage of pre-history.

What happened to the Neanderthals is still a mystery, but it was the Cro-Magnon who
survived and began the long climb to the world we now know.




I thought this movie got a really bad rap. Yes, it's not nearly as good as the novel
it's based on, but I think it still had its moments.

Cro-Magnons and Neanderthals were hunter gatherers.

Are the opinions quoted above those of Wade Hampton III, or are they from the videos at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BFtZcK3t1gw (I did not watch the video)?

Some people may interpret the opinions expressed above to mean that the civilizations of Europe were created by Cro-Magnons.

Europeans inherited some of their DNA from both the Cro-Magnons and Neanderthals. The common ancestor of both races lived in Africa. The last Neanderthal hunter gatherer died about 30 KYA because they could not compete with the Cro-Magnon hunter gatherers. After the Cro-Magnons depleted their other sources of food, they began to eat the Neanderthals. The Last Glacial Maximum was so cold that the Cro-Magnons migrated to the Mediterranean, and became cold-adapted, which is why their Southern European descendants look and behave so differently from the Aryans of northern Europe, who are more civilized because they have less Cro-Magnon blood than Southern Europeans.

Aryans descend from Neolithic farmers who migrated to Europe from the Fertile Crescent during the Holocene, after the end of the last glacial period. Balaresque et al. http://www.plosbiology.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pbio.1000285 stated: "The relative contributions to modern European populations of Paleolithic hunter-gatherers and Neolithic farmers from the Near East have been intensely debated. Haplogroup R1b1b2 (R-M269) is the commonest European Y-chromosomal lineage, increasing in frequency from east to west, and carried by 110 million European men... The distribution of this lineage, the diversity within it, and estimates of its age all suggest that it spread with farming from the Near East. Taken with evidence on the origins of other lineages, this indicates that most European Y chromosomes descend from Near Eastern farmers... Previous studies suggested a Paleolithic origin, but here we show that the geographical distribution of its microsatellite diversity is best explained by spread from a single source in the Near East via Anatolia during the Neolithic ... in contrast, most maternal lineages descend from hunter-gatherers ..." Most Europeans have Crô-Magnon mitochondrial DNA because Neolithic farmers took the land and women of the hunter-gatherers.

According to this Wikipedia article about HG R1b1a2 (a.k.a. R-M269), "the distribution of R1b STR variance in Europe forms a cline from east to west, which is more consistent with an entry into Europe from Western Asia with the spread of farming... "The frequency is about 71% in Scotland, 70% in Spain and 60% in France. In south-eastern England the frequency of this clade is about 70%; in parts of the rest of north and western England, Spain, Portugal, Wales and Ireland, it is as high as 90%; and in parts of north-western Ireland it reaches 98%."
