*****GK: I'm working from memory here, but if this is
about the Cavalli-Sforza's school analysis, is there
not a mention by them of three major components, one
"irradiating" from the southeast (and perhaps linkable
to the Anatolian expansion) another from the far
north, and a third from the east (the last one
associated by some interpreters with IE as per
varieties of the "kurgan wave" hypothesis)?****
