Elevated Ancestry. What is it?

Reply Sat 20 Apr, 2019 07:00 am
I've read several articles that talk about certain cultures having an elevated ancestry, but don't understand what that means. For example in an article about the people from what is now Turkey arrived in Britain around 4000 bc they quickly became wide spread throughout the land except in the West of Scotland probably due to 'elevated ancestry' of the people there. Can anyone elevate my understanding here? Smile

It may mean they could have been members of an upper class/literate or educated. Furthermore, they may not have been interested in making war and staying integrated with their community. At the least, they were resourceful and perhaps good sailing or boatbuilding.

From a quick Internet perusal, it looks like this term refers to a group that has an abnormal contribution of ancestors from a different group. So if a migrant group (say from the Middle East) arrived in a country and primarily settled in one region, that region will have an elevated ancestry from the Middle East.
