Egyptians were EuropeanWatch
By studying Mummies and their DNA scientists have found that these anciet people shared much more in common with Europeans and people from the East Asian continent.
'However in the last 1,500 years Egypt became more genetically African, whereas the ancient Egyptians showed almost no sub-Saharan African ancestry and high affinity to ancient Near Eastern and European populations.'
The team sampled 151 mummified individuals from the archaeological site of Abusir el-Meleq, along the Nile River in Middle Egypt. Recent advances in the study of ancient DNA present an intriguing opportunity to test existing understandings of Egyptian history using the ancient genetic data.
The new study managed to extract accurate, full-genome DNA data from three ancient Egyptian mummies, and usable segments of DNA from 90 mummies.
Last I heard most were more related to North-Africans.
So who is lying? I never thought of Egyptians as being European.
The article's title is silly though. What is suprising in that? They always depicted themselves in painting in a manner that strongly suggests that they certainly were not *****idal.
