Slavs the true "Aryans"? Holy untermensch!

I was pointed to this article over at Stanford that indicates Slavs are the closest to proto-Indo-European stock. Don't tell the Germans.... The article is titled Eurasian Heartland: A continental perspective on Y chromosome diversity, Spencer Wells shows up. It's a few years old & I think I might have posted a link before, but pretty wide-ranging & worth a second read (long download). The whole site over at Stanford that archives this sort of genetics work is worth a read & browse.

Also, someone in Toronto is trying to look up a picture of me as a little kid. Email me at razib-at-gnxp.com and I'll send you my 3 year old pic. I was cute if that's what you're wondering about....

They aren't looking for that black-and-white dealy are they? That one's easy to find.

The Germanic tribes are Indo-European and migrated into Europe from the East, so it's kind of self-evident that Germans aren't that close to pre-Indo-European stock.
