This is about genetic composition of Saraswati Valley Civilization.So the indus valley civilization is the oldest civilization, anything r1a related is aryan? I support migration theories from India to Europe
An Ancient Harappan Genome Lacks Ancestry fromSteppe Pastoralists or Iranian Farmers
The mature Indus Valley Civilization (IVC), also known as the Har-appan Civilization, was spread over northwestern South Asiafrom 2600 to 1900 BCE and was one of the first large-scale urbansocieties of the ancient world, characterized by systematic townplanning, elaborate drainage systems, granaries, and standard-ization of weights and measures. The inhabitants of the IVC werecosmopolitan, with multiple cultural groups living together inlarge regional urban centers like Harappa (Punjab), Mohenjo-daro (Sindh), Rakhigarhi (Haryana), Dholavira (Kutch/Gujarat),and Ganweriwala (Cholistan) (Figure 1A) (Mughal, 1990; Possehl,1982, 1990; Shaffer and Lichtenstein, 1989). Rakhigarhi is one ofthe largest known IVC sites (Figures 1B and 1C), and seven datesfrom charcoal at depths of 9–23 m have point estimates of 2800–2300 BCE, which largely fall within the mature phase of the IVC(Shinde et al., 2018; Vahia et al., 2016). As part of the archaeolog-ical effort, we attempted to generate ancient DNA data for a sub-set of the excavated burials.
No foreign inflow whatsoever.
This about R1a Genetic Origin. R1a is native to India.
