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.
