The Yamnaya culture originated in the Don–Volga area, and is dated 3300–2600 BC. An early regional stage of Yamnaya is labeled the Mikhaylovka culture. It was preceded by the middle Volga-based Khvalynsk culture and the Don-based Repin culture (c. 3950–3300 BC), and late pottery from these two cultures can barely be distinguished from early Yamnaya pottery. Earlier continuity from eneolithic but largely hunter-gatherer Samara culture and influences from the more agricultural Dnieper–Donets II are apparent. Khvalynsk culture
The Khvalynsk culture was a Middle Copper Age (for Eastern Europe named “Eneolithic”) culture (c. 4900 – 3500 BC) of the middle Volga region, discovered at Khvalynsk on the Volga in Saratov Oblast, Russia. It was preceded by the Early Eneolithic Samara culture, from which it came, and succeeded by the Late Eneolithic, Early Yamna culture, into which it developed.
Recent genetic studies have shown that males of the Khvalynsk culture carried primarily the paternal haplogroup R1b, although a few samples of R1a, I2a2, Q1a and J has been detected. They belonged to the Western Steppe Herder (WSH) cluster, which is a mixture of Eastern Hunter-Gatherer (EHG) and Caucasian Hunter-Gatherer (CHG) ancestry. This admixture appears to have happened on the eastern Pontic–Caspian steppe around 5,000 BC.
Is Rh Negative Blood Celtic?
One of the questions I receive again and again is if rh negative blood is to be considered Celtic, Jewish, Viking etc. If only it were that easy to label heritage. The truth is going back, way back in time is needed to truly be able to pinpoint a heritage. What exactly does it mean to be “Celtic”? “Haplogroup R1b is being associated with being Celtic, but it cannot be true, because R1b exists in every country.” This is a quote I have recently read. And I cannot believe what I have read. Think about this for one minute: As an example I am going to use Bavaria in southern Germany. Often mistaken as a “typical German outfit”, the traditional … Continue reading Is Rh Negative Blood Celtic?

What comes to mind immediately are the Udmurt people of the same region.
