The R-S28 mutation represents a key component of the current European genetic landscape, in particular of the pre-Roman Italian landscape.

Abstract

The R-S28 mutation represents a key component of the current European genetic landscape, in particular of the pre-Roman Italian landscape. The main contribute to the current distribution in cisalpine regions can be more confidently attributed to population movements occurred along with the diffusion of the Urnfield culture (3,300 - 2,750 BP) rather than to Paleolithic, Neolithic and Chalcolithic migrations, as previously suggested. A surfing effect has been suggested, that may have increased the frequency of this mutation in a limited area (Western Alps and Upper Tyrrhenum), due to the fragmentation of the populations in tribes with a mixed economy (proto-Villanova), who refunded the communities previously installed in the same area (Terramare settlements) and colonized new valleys. According to this new perspective the Proto-Celtic people of the Canegrate (13th century BCE) and Proto-Golasecca (12th-10th centuries BCE) cultures can be considered the early vectors of the diffusion.
