J1 Hap Map


In my recent The Bedouin post, I discuss the southward expansion of J1e.  A hap map of the distribution of J1 is illuminating.  This map is taken from the wiki page for Y-DNA maps which unfortunately does not reference its source.

The map describes not only the position of J1 in the Arabian peninsula, but also suggests a back migration into Africa.

The high concentration of J1 north of the Caucasus along the Caspian Sea is a surprise and a topic for further investigation.
