My blogging lately has been slowed down by my MS flaring up and my boy discovering Lego Indiana Jones online – my apologies to anyone I haven’t responded to in the comments.
A basic page for reference on J1 and J2 so I don’t have to root through multiple papers and blog entries every time I want to find something.
This is a homemade table and mainly from Cruciani’s 2004 figures and Hassan 2008 for a one-glace overview . The Egyptian figures are my own from several combined sources and are about as accurate as you’ll get for that country. The other countries are from single paper sources and probably aren’t as accurate overall, but it’s a decent rough guide.
The actual Cruciani table, another chart (can’t remember which paper).
From Giacomo 2004
While not the neatest page, it should be useful for quicker referencing. A good look through the J hg’s around the near East has reinforced a Neolithic or older entry date for the J2 in North Africa as far as I’m concerned, as the ratio of J2 to J1/other hg’s is incompatible with it having a historical arrival from any of the known invading areas. I’m also wondering if upper Egypt is the switch over area from Arab J1 to Capsian J1.

If anyone else finds a Y chromosome J reference for the near East, Europe, North Africa or India/Pakistan that I haven’t included leave the name of the paper ( I expect there’s a few) in the comments, as I’ll be adding to this one as I go along. Also a decent recent tree of J would be nice – if anyone find one send me a link!
