    It appears that the iron age Bantu conquest of Africa was more rapid than originally thought. Cameroon is the origin point of the Bantu expansion, so if that started less than 5000 - 3000 years ago that is stunning

    Mongols = small nomadic tribe conquering most of the world’s greatest kingdoms and civilisations, largest land-based empire in history.

    Bantus = conquering shitty African malaria infested jungle land inhabited by primitive african tribes who did not even have iron weapons.

    Doubt the pygmies + khoisan combined even numbered half a million during the time of the bantu expansion, whereas the mongols literally were defeating the Chinese who fielded half a million soldiers in battles.

    This is more proof the Khoisan were not originally restricted to the desert areas of SA.

    If Bantus did not conquer land from Pygmies and Khoisan then most of SSA would have been extremely under populated and Europeans would have demographically replaced the natives in habitable parts of SSA like Rwanda, Burundi, all of South Africa etc.

    Africa would be like the Americas :damn:

    I believe @Apollo has some autosomal results of eyle’s and they all came out as a mix of somali and somali Bantu, no khoisan ancestry whatsoever

    The Khoisan never lived in Somalia. Those sources claiming Khoisans in Somalia are mainly lies or very bad misinterpretations of what the concept of Khoisan actually means.

    Those are not Khoisan. Also, there's no evidence that their type lived in Horn. The oldest sample from Ethiopia does not cluster with them. They are a completely different population.

    Of course not. Did you even read the abstract in the OP? Bantus are a relatively new population from West Africa with specific genetics who expanded after the agricultural revolution.
