"The Spread of Zebu Cattle from South Asia to the East Mediterranean Region as a Marker of Indo-European Population Dispersal"

Semenenko, Aleksandr Andreyevich

Abstract

The paper develops the hypothesis that zebu cattle (depictions) are a marker of Indo-European population dispersal from the Indus Valley to Syria and Anatolia in 70001000 BC. It combines the exploration of the data on human genetics (full genomes and Y-Haplogroups originating from South Asia), bovine genetic admixture distribution maps (mitochondrial, autosomal and Y-chromosomal), archaeology (findings of zebu figurines, pictures, images and seals) and Indo-European linguistics.

Keywords: zebu cattle, Indo-Europeans, Indo-Aryans, Iranians, Anatolians, Mitanni and Kassite Aryans.
