Timeline, Y-DNA, R1b-M222, and McAninch TMRCA’s

~600,000 to

Homo heidelbergensis: extinct species of genus Homo, lived in


~200,000 BCE

Africa, Europe and western Asia; Neanderthals, Denisovans, and


modern humans are all descended from Homo heidelbergensis

“Y Adam”

“Y-Chromosome Adam”: root of the Y-DNA haplogroup tree,


the most recent patri-lineal ancestor of all people living today.


He was not the only man living at that time, he simply was the


only man with an unbroken male line of descent to the present day.


~200,000 BCE

estimates ~300,000 BCE to ~208,300 BCE to ~180,000 BCE,

or ~90,000 BCE

[or, isogg] “believed to have lived 60,000 to 90,000 years ago”


The Ice Age

Ice Age, the last glacial period, was the most recent glacial period

~110,000 BCE

within the Quaternary glaciation during the last 100,000 years of

to ~10,000 BCE

the Pleistocene, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Last_glacial_period

Out of Africa

Mankind’s journey ‘out of Africa’ started after the climate began


95,000 yrs ago

to improve, estimated 60,000 to 70,000 years ago by the original


70,000 yrs ago

Genographic Project, more recently 62,000 to 95,000 years ago.


The Stone Age

Stone Age, broad prehistoric period during which stone was used

ends 6000 BCE

to make items with a sharp edge, a point, or a percussion surface.

    to 2000 BCE

The period lasted roughly 3.4 million years, and ended between

6000 BCE and 2000 BCE with the advent of metalworking


~45,000 BCE to

Modern humans (early Homo sapiens sapiens) (aka Cro-Magnon)


~ 40,000 BCE

and Neaderthals (Homo neanderthalensis, or sub-species Homo


sapiens neanderthalensis) coexisted in Europe, with possible


inter-breeding (or, genes inherited from Homo heidelbergensis)


Haplogroup R

Haplogroup R-M207 is believed to have arisen approximately


~25,000 BCE

27,000 years ago in Asia. The two . . . subclades are R1 and R2.


~25,000 yrs ago

[and] Haplogroup R* originated in North Asia just before the

Last Glacial Maximum (26,500-19,000 years ago) [eupedia] [76]

~20,000 BCE

Haplogroups R1a, R1b formed 22,000 ybp [YFull (Tree v.4.03)]


~10,500 BCE

oldest evidence of human occupation on the island of Ireland
