R-L664 (Y-DNA) R1a1->M17->M417->CTS4385->L664 R-L664 (Y-DNA)
R-L664 is subgroup of:
R1a-> M448(R1a1)-> M17(R1a1a)-> M417(R1a1a1)-> CTS4385-> L664
on the Y-DNA Tree.
It spans Sweden, Denmark, Belgium and England. It is an extremely rare haplogroup comprising less than 1% of the population of these countries. L664 originated in 3000 B.C. probably in Sweden and is associated with the corded ware” (pottery) culture along with domesticated horses, two wheeled chariots and the Indo-European language. It is closely related to but does not include Z283 (R1a1a1b1) and Z93 (R1a1a1b2). The group probably entered England after the age of the Romans.

The story of R1a: the academics flounder as they edge closer to the truth

R1a and R1b as markers of the Proto-Indo-European expansion: a review of ancient DNA evidence

Y-DNA haplogroup R1a is arguably the best candidate for a genetic signal of the Proto-Indo-Europeans, who are thought to have expanded across Eurasia during the Copper Age. It’s been characterized as such in several academic papers during the past 15 years, and the theory now looks more plausible than ever thanks to recent discoveries about its structure and phylogeography (for example, see here – http://polishgenes.blogspot.com.au/2013/01/new-r1a1a-tree.html and here – http://eurogenes.blogspot.com.au/2012/10/first-official-attempt-to-divide-r1a1.html). Moreover, it’s been found in numerous ancient remains supposedly belonging to early Indo-Europeans. R1a’s brother clade, R1b, has also been proposed as a marker of the Proto-Indo-European dispersals, mostly by hobby genetic genealogists on various online forums. Among other things, they argue that it shows a high correlation with the so called Centum Indo-European languages, and probably expanded rapidly across Europe at exactly the right time (ie. during and/or after the Copper Age). However, there are also several problems with this theory, such as the fact that R1b is the dominant Y-DNA haplogroup in one of Europe’s few non-Indo-European speaking groups, the Basques. (…)

I don’t know how and when R1b first entered Europe, but it’s unlikely that it came from the steppe, because there’s not a single R1b in any of the ancient samples from Siberia, the Altai and western China, where R1a dominates. In any case, wherever it came from, it definitely expanded from Western Europe during the Copper Age with the Bell Beaker culture.

Underhill et al., 2014
Today, I just want to show the frequencies of the R1a subbranches in the tested regions of the latest Underhill publication http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/?term=24667786. The Middle East shows the highest diversity when it comes to SNPs. The authors wrote that „phylogeographic data lead us to conclude that the initial episodes of R1a-M420 diversification occurred in the vicinity of Iran and Eastern Turkey”, which is basically Kurdistan and Iran.

Davidski March 31, 2014 at 4:13 PM
L664 is the result of the same star like expansion of M417 that also involved Z282 and Z93, which most likely started during the Copper Age from somewhere in Europe. So it’s not that young. Underhill thought that R1a came from the Indus Valley, and now he’s moved things to Iran. Eventually he’ll get it right, or someone else will.
