    The DNA project aimed at understanding the ancestry of the Anglesey Bonesetter as apparently attributed this ancestry to the Caucaus and a clade of R-P312 called R-S250.

    http://www.angleseybonesetters.co.uk...rts_Issued.pdf

    Jim Wilson et al. sequenced the Y and found 13 novel SNPs in this lineage that, so far, have not appeared in any of the 1,000+ samples WIlson has access to. They'd seem to be good candidates for Eastern European R-P312 lineages.

    The attribution to the Caucasus was apparently based solely on the Y chromosome, even though their lab sequenced the entire genome. The Y-DNA haplotype is in Ysearch as D3786:

    http://www.ysearch.org/search_view.a...wuid=D3786&p=1

    If we consider only the 54 slower markers (out of FTDNA's usual 67), 7 different entries are at a distance of 4. But of these, only one has 12 at DYS393 and 10 at DYS385a: BKR92 of Puerto Rico (but with patrilineage from Spain).

    http://www.ysearch.org/search_view.a...wuid=BKR92&p=1

    I suspect that if the entire genome were analyzed by Dienekes' K12b, it would fall near the Iberian samples.

    I now realize that the whole-genome sequencing was performed on a patrilineal descendant of the Anglesey Bonesetter, not on the long-deceased Bonesetter himself. Hence, autosomal ancestry classification would be of no practical use in this case. The purpose of the sequencing was solely to identify new Y-SNPs that could be used to find the Bonesetter's original patrilineal ethnic group.

    Richard III's remains

    A bid to find the remains of England's King Richard III is starting more than 500 years after his death on a Leicestershire battlefield.

    Read about it here

    University of Leicester spokesman Richard Taylor said: "If remains are found that are suspected to be those of Richard III, they will be subject to DNA analysis at the University of Leicester where DNA fingerprinting was originally discovered."
