    The ancient hunter-gatherer were the first modern humans in Europe. They originated in various areas of Euroasia and carried higher percentages of Neanderthal DNA than modern Europeans. 36,000 year old European early hunter-gatherer recreated who had a Neanderthal ancestor 4 – 6 generations back. The Middle Farmers migrated into Europe 8000 years ago:
    5000 year old Otzi the Iceman was a closely related to the Middle Eastern Farmers as are modern Sardinians The last people to migrate Europe was the Indo-Europeans who originated from the Yamnaya Culture in Eastern Europe. Therefore Europeans are mixed and all are descendants from Royalty.
