One key question for Carlin and other archaeologists is why Bronze Age Britain retains many Neolithic cultural habits when the genetic turnover was so catastrophic.
Here's a quote:
"...it remains hard to understand how newcomers could have been so strongly influenced by the people of Neolithic Britain, if they had been rapidly and almost completely replaced during the introduction of the Beaker phenomenon."Before posting any berserk comments, keep in mind the purpose of the article and the audience. Hopefully we'll see another big swath of Neolithic and Beaker ancients from Britain and Ireland in the near future.
