“Our evidence that Europeans today harbor ancestry that wasn’t present in the first farmers is important as it shows directly that there was a major movement of people into Europe after the advent of agriculture,” Reich said. “This motivates further ancient DNA work to try and figure out what archaeological cultures were responsible for bringing this ancestry.”
