    I have updated the Late Trypillian groups in the Early Chalcolithic map, using Diachenko & Harper (2016) and (not so much) Videiko (2011). I hope future papers on population genomics give a more precise chronology:

    Diachenko-harper-late-trypillian-chronology

    Proposed synchronizations and durations of local groups of the Late Tripolye culture. Colors indicate typo-chronological assignment: yellow – Tripolye BII; light green – Tripolye CI; dark green – Tripolye CI-II; blue – Tripolye CII. From Diachenko & Harper (2016).

    Diachenko-harper-late-trypillian-groups

    The general distribution of Late Tripolye local groups and relevant sites with 14C dating. From Diachenko & Harper (2016).

    I have updated the cultural groups of Anatolia and the Middle East from the Early Bronze Age until the Late Bronze Age, corresponding to the following maps:

    Updated the whole Prehistory Atlas to fit all files with the same size, as a user suggested some months ago.

    The previous Late Eneolithic and Early Chalcolithic maps have been finally split into three, including now a Final Eneolithic period.

    This way, a (roughly) three-part distinction can be made between (1) Late Trypillia vs. Early Yamnaya, (2) Corded Ware vs. Yamnaya settlers, and (3) Late/Epi-Corded Ware vs. Bell Beaker expansion.

    Also slightly updated are maps of Late Bronze Age, Antiquity, and Middle Ages.

    All maps from the Mesolithic on have been updated with styles to differentiate between overlapping cultures.

    Other minor changes added, such as the Neman cultural circle added to the critical Late Neolithic / Early Bronze Age periods, or a correction of SE European cultures with Babyno and related groups, distinct from later MBA/LBA groups.

    Based on this comment:

    1. I have added Ulaanzhuuk to the Middle Bronze Age map (compare new and old version).

    2. I have expanded the DSKC (I just had the Russian-oriented depiction of “Kereksury”) in the Late Bronze Age map, where I also tried to mark more recent dates by higher elevations – Slab Grave core and overall territory being the latest (compare new and old version).

    Corrections are based on Rawson et al. J World Prehist (2020).

    Problems:

    • Khövsgöl LBA is a group of Munkh-Khairkan (methinks?), but still I’ve added a region with surviving groups well into the LBA – similar to the Tevsh group – based on aDNA.
    • Altai_MLBA includes many different cultures, some of which have no maps AFAIK, so you’ll see only labels for some of them. Still, I adapted the color of Baitag (Altai_MLBA cluster) and Tevsh (part of Ulaanzhuukh) to try and reflect their different genetic groups.

    Overall, the more groups I try to add, the more difficult they become to differentiate visually, at first sight.

    If it’s OK, I’ll change them in the DNA maps, too.
