Ydna HaploType question and science (ancient digs)
Posted by: melissa1 (ID *****1156) Date: May 02, 2012 at 10:25:31

Just curious as to why when you read these headlines saying things like "Scientist discover ancient (human) dna..." and then they never give that human's HaploType so that we might know if they show our same dna? OR, maybe they do and I've just missed the info somewhere.
Its usually represented as TAGA GATA something or other which means nothing to we as laymen so we don't understand it. Do they not want the science to cross over into the Genealogy world (so to speak) with our given HaploTypes from our test results or is there a bit more to it?
I would love to know folks who have the "I1d" haplotypes and where if anywhere in the world they have found it.
I am particularly interested to know if they have uncovered any of it from ancient dig sites on the Orkney Isles of Scotland or in Norway and if so where in Norway.
I find all of this extremely fascinating but frustrating as a laymen because I only know Ydna results from a HaploType results or the marker numbers of my own family line.
Thank you for any help or comments.
