Ancestors of Europeans Found near Lake Baikal in Siberia

The international group of scientists arrived at such a conclusion, having refuted an earlier known two-component genetic model.

      Until recently it was assumed that the modern European comes from two large branches of ancestors, who were early farmers and forageing hunters.

      The group of scientists including Russian experts has discovered that the Europeans’ DNA has a genetic component similar to genetic characteristics of a boy whose remains were found near Lake Baikal.

      It should be noted that the remains are twenty four thousand years old. According to experts, the boy was one of the tribe of northern Eurasians.

      Though the modern European has at least three ancient ancestors, the researchers report that the contribution of northern Eurasians into formation of Europeans made no more than 20 per cent.
