    Hmm, heard they were of Greek origin. Seems like it (in part) based on this study.

    Kind of awkward for Palestinians that their ethnonym is linked to Greek pirates. :lol:

    Yh, the Romans named that geographic area Palestine after the second Jewish rebellion to humiliate the Jews.

    Its about small population movement and the fore-bearers of name Philistine, but the Palestinian people are home to the region.

    There are so many ancient genomes from Israel, but so few from Africa. Hmm, makes you wonder.

    Trololol,

    Too much evidence of it starting in East Africa.

    Israelis are obsessed with analyzing all their ancient bones because of the politics there (who owns it) and the bible/religious implications.

    Researchers in China would disagree.

    They argue that there was no OOA and that human similarities in genome and phenotype are down to luck.
