According to the Genetic Atlas of Human Admixture History, there was migration between the British Isles and the Indus Valley 700-200 BCE. These migrations receive tentative support also from archaeological, linguistic, and cultural evidence. One potential route was the North Sea, Baltic, Volga, Caspian, Amu Darya route, which best matches the genetic evidence. This route could possibly explain the strange concentration of Kalevalan personal names in the Ganges Valley of India.


Dr. Pasi Malmi has studied cultural evolution since 1986 in his master’s thesis, doctoral thesis, and post-doc publications. His newest book integrates archaeology, linguistics, genetics, and onomastics in order to explain the early Iron Age migrations between Britain and India. The book has been peer reviewed by three doctors (genetics, archaeology, and history) and by a professor of linguistics. All participants will get a PDF copy of the book, free of charge.
