Here’s a video from Masaman about the Old Europeans. He explains, they are “the original people groups of Europe that inhabited the landmass before the arrival of the Indo-Europeans, a group which would later evolve into the vast majority of European nations we see today, from the Russians, Italians, Irish, Norwegians and Greeks.“
Not much is known, but our knowledge is inching forward with new techniques and discoveries.
I’m posting about the Old Europeans here because the G2a Hauris — along with other members of haplogroup G2a — are probably among the survivors of this older European population that was overrun by invading Indo-Europeans in the Bronze Age.
