Notes 7

“From a genetic point of view, several recent genetic studies have shown that subSaharan genetic lineages (affiliated with the Y-chromosome PN2 clade; Underhill et al. 2001) have spread through Egypt into the Near East, the Mediterranean area, and, for some lineages, as far north as Turkey (E3b-M35 Y lineage; Cinniogclu et al. 2004; Luis et al. 2004), probably during several dispersal episodes since the Mesolithic (Cinniogelu et al. 2004; King et al. 2008; Lucotte and Mercier 2003; Luis et al. 2004; Quintana-Murci et al. 1999; Semino et al. 2004; Underhill et al. 2001).
This finding is in agreement with morphological data that suggest that populations with sub-Saharan morphological elements were present in northeastern Africa, from the Paleolithic to at least the early Holocene, and diffused northward to the Levant and Anatolia beginning in the Mesolithic. Indeed, the rare and incomplete Paleolithic to early Neolithic skeletal specimens found in Egypt - such as the 33,000-year-old Nazlet Khater specimen (Pinhasi and Semai 2000), the Wadi Kubbaniya skeleton from the late Paleolithic site in the upper Nile valley (Wendorf et al. 1986), the Qarunian (Faiyum) early Neolithic crania (Henneberg et al. 1989; Midant-Reynes 2000), and the Nabta specimen from the Neolithic Nabta Playa site in the western desert of Egypt (Henneberg et al. 1980) - show, with regard to the great African biological diversity, similarities with some of the sub-Saharan middle Paleolithic and modern sub-Saharan specimens.
This affinity pattern between ancient Egyptians and sub-Saharans has also been noticed by several other investigators..”

TIMES-ONLINE NEWS ARTICLE - Skull of Cleopatra's sisterMurdered sister of Cleopatra found- a 2009 news article reveals details about Arsinoe, the sister Cleopatra and Mark Anthony had murdered as a potential rival.
"Caroline Wilkinson, a forensic anthropologist, reconstructed the missing skull based on measurements taken in the 1920s. Using computer technology it was possible to create a facial impression of what Arsinöe might have looked like.

“It has got this long head shape,” said Wilkinson. “That’s something you see quite frequently in ancient Egyptians and black Africans. It could suggest a mixture of ancestry.”

BBC NEWS ARTICLE- 2009 - skeleton of Cleopatra's sister
In BBC news article, Austrian scientists say skeleton of Cleopatra's sister was African.
QUOTE:"Elizabeth Taylor's European Cleopatra persists in the public imagination Cleopatra, the last Egyptian Pharaoh, renowned for her beauty, was part African, says a BBC team which believes it has found her sister's tomb.
Queen Cleopatra was a descendant of Ptolemy, the Macedonian general who ruled Egypt after Alexander the Great. But remains of the queen's sister Princess Arsinoe, found in Ephesus, Turkey, indicate that her mother had an "African" skeleton.

Experts have described the results as "a real sensation."
The discovery was made by Hilke Thuer of the Austrian Academy of Sciences.
"It is unique in the life of an archaeologist to find the tomb and the skeleton of a member of Ptolemaic dynasty," she said.. "That Arsinoe had an African mother is a real sensation which leads to a new insight on Cleopatra's family and the relationship of the sisters Cleopatra and Arsinoe."
Some DNA researchers claim an African origin for the Arabic languages

Near Eastern languages came from Africa 10,000 years ago
Investigator: Ene Metspalu
Tuesday May 28th, 2002
by Laura Spinney

Analysis of thousands of mitochondrial DNA samples has led Estonian
archeogeneticists to the origins of Arabic. Ene Metspalu of the
Department of Evolutionary Biology at Tartu University and the
Estonian Biocentre in Tartu, claims to have evidence that the Arab-
Berber languages of the Near and Middle East came out of East Africa
around 10,000 years ago. She has found evidence for what may have
been the last sizeable migration out of Africa before the slave

Genetic markers transmitted through either the maternal or paternal
line have been used to trace the great human migrations since Homo
sapiens emerged in Africa. But attempts to trace the evolution of
languages have met with less success, partly because of the impact on
languages of untraceable political and economic upheavals.
Metspalu and colleagues analyzed inherited variations in a huge
number of samples - almost 3000 - of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) taken
from natives of the Near East, Middle East and Central Asia, as well
as North and East Africa.

mtDNA is inherited through the maternal line, and by comparing their
data with existing data on European, Indian, Siberian and other
Central Asian populations, the researchers were able to create a
comprehensive phylogenetic map of maternal lineages diverging from
Africa and spreading towards Europe and Asia.
Working in collaboration with language specialists, they found that
this movement 10,000 years ago, which was probably centred on
Ethiopia, could well have been responsible for seeding the Afro-
Asiatic language from which all modern Arab-Berber languages are

"This language was spoken in Africa 10,000 or 12,000 years ago,"
Metspalu told BioMedNet News. "We think it was around that time that
carriers brought these Afro-Asiatic languages to the Near East." The
language, or its derivatives, later spread much further afield.
What could have triggered the movement she can only speculate. One
possibility is that increasing desertification was causing famine in
Africa and driving hunters further afield in search of animals.
Interestingly, the lineages they traced through this 10,000-year-old
migration didn't seem to get much further north than modern-day Syria
or east of modern-day Iraq. There is no evidence of the lineages in
the mtDNA of people from Turkey or Iran, says Metspalu.

"We can't understand why this boundary [to the Arab-Berber speaking
world] is so sharp," she said. "They came out of Africa, and when
they reached Turkey they just stopped." She believes some kind of
physical boundary, now vanished, must have impeded them.

The same genetic detective work has confirmed archeological evidence
that the biggest movement out of Africa occurred around 50,000 years
ago - which is when Africans first settled in other continents - and
that it originated in a small East African population.

First modern Europeans looked like Africans
Scientists reveal face of the first European
The face of the first European has been recreated from bone fragments by scientists.

The first modern European Forensic artist Richard Neave reconstructed the face based on skull fragments from 35000 years ago. Photo: BBC The head was rebuilt in clay based on an incomplete skull and jawbone discovered in a cave in the south west of the Carpathian Mountains in Romania by potholers.

Using radiocarbon analysis scientists say the man or woman, it is still not possible to determine the sex, lived between 34,000 and 36,000 years ago.

Europe was then occupied by both Neanderthal man, who had been in the region for thousands of years, and anatomically-modern humans – Homo sapiens.

Modern humans first arrived in Europe from Africa.

The skull appears very like humans today, but it also displays more archaic traits, such as very large molar teeth, which led some scientists to speculate the skull may belong to a hybrid between Homo sapiens and Neanderthals – an idea discounted by other experts.

Erik Trinkaus, professor of anthropology at Washington University in Missouri, said the jaw was the oldest, directly-dated modern human fossil. "Taken together, the material is the first that securely documents what modern humans looked like when they spread into Europe," he said.

The model was created by Richard Neave, a forensic artist, for a BBC programme about the origins of the human race and evolution.
DISCOVERY CHANNEL Reconstruction of Queen Nefertiti Forensic reconstruction team of British experts did not know the ethnicity or origin of skull in advance - USA Today Article
Posted 8/12/2003 8:53 PM Updated 8/13/2003 10:48 AM

Could this be the profile of a queen?

Is this Nefertiti? Two months ago, a team of Egyptologists led by British scientist Joann Fletcher of the University of York announced that a neglected mummy collecting dust in a nondescript tomb was actually that of ancient Egypt's most famous female ruler.
In an effort to confirm her identity, two British experts have applied their forensic skills to digital X-rays of the skull. (Related graphic: Reconstructing Nefertiti)
Neither Damian Schofield of Nottingham University nor Martin Evison of Sheffield University knew in advance the identity of their "victim." They specialize in reconstructing human faces from skulls for murder cases in which the victim is unknown.
Schofield and Evison created a 3-D computer mesh of the skull, then placed a series of markers to designate where tissue would be added. Next, they added facial muscles to give the face its full depth and contour. Finally, a graphic artist added skin texture, eye color, lips and the crown.
Nefertiti: Her life and death
Schofield and Evison say the reconstruction does not prove the skull belongs to Nefertiti. But they were surprised at the similarities with Nefertiti's bust, which was made during her lifetime and is displayed at the Egyptian Museum in Berlin.
Says Fletcher: "I was bowled over by it, to be honest. The face is that of a very strong individual indeed. She has such a beautiful profile. She is stunning."
Nefertiti's image is one of the most popular today from ancient Egypt. But the real queen was hated by Egyptian society after her reign ended. An unusually powerful queen, she reigned with her husband, Akhenaten, who ruled from 1352 to 1336 B.C., during the late 18th dynasty. Nefertiti may have ruled as pharaoh for three years after his death.
Nefertiti vanished from Egyptian history with no trace of a royal tomb or evidence of a burial.

Italian reconstruction team confirms that Nefertiti bust in German museum is
covered with a plaster facade. CAT scans revealed another image beneath the
first layer. Italian team's forensic reconstruction is shown below.
An Italian duo have revealed what they claim is the 'real' face of Queen Nefertiti. Ethnologist Franco Crevatin, from the University of Trieste, and cosmetics expert Stefano Anselmo, started with a recent CAT scan of the famous queen's bust, held in Berlin's newly-reopened Neues Museum. The scan of 'Nonofret' as she's known in Germany, appeared to show a second face, made of stone, buried beneath the stucco top layer the world has come to adore. Using computer imaging, Crevatin and Anselmo have made what they feel is a faithful reproduction of the hidden face. And though differences are subtle - shallower eye sockets, lines around the mouth and a tiny bump on the bridge of the nose - the duo claim their version is closer to the real Nefertiti.
'Reproducing the face of a queen who is surrounded by such mystery required months of painstaking, detailed work,'' said Crevatin. ''It was particularly difficult given the number of entirely diverging theories on her. Some even believe the bust in Berlin is a fake, while others believe the queen only had one eye''. The bust of Nefertiti, who was the chief wife of Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten, is the central attraction at the newly reopened Neues Museum in Berlin. Thought to have been created in 1,345 BC by the sculptor Thutmose, it was discovered in the remains of his workshop on the banks of the Nile by a German archaeological team in 1912. The Egyptologist Ludwig Borchardt brought it to Germany the following year, although there are conflicting accounts of whether he lied in order to do so. Egyptian authorities have suggested the bust was smuggled out illegally and recently renewed a long-running campaign for its return. But Germany insists it acquired the Egyptian beauty lawfully and says it is too fragile to be sent back.

NEW YORK, 1 April 2009 - Using CT imaging to study a priceless bust of Nefertiti, researchers have uncovered a delicately carved face in the limestone inner core and gained new insights into methods used to create the ancient masterpiece and information pertinent to its conservation, according to a study published in the April issue of Radiology .
"We acquired a lot of information on how the bust was manufactured more than 3,300 years ago by the royal sculptor," said the study's lead author Alexander Huppertz, M.D., director of the Imaging Science Institute in Berlin, Germany. "We learned that the sculpture has two slightly different faces, and we derived from interpretation of the CT images how to prevent damage of this extremely precious art object."
The inner face differed slightly from the outer one, with creases around the mouth, less pronounced cheekbones and a bump on the ridge of the nose.
Nefertiti, the wife of the Egyptian pharaoh Akhenaten, was the most renowned Great Royal Wife of all 31 Egyptian dynasties. Considered one of the greatest finds of ancient Egypt, the bust of Nefertiti was discovered in 1912, during excavation of the studio of famous royal sculptor Thutmose.
The Nefertiti bust consists of a limestone core covered in layers of stucco of varying thickness. The bust was examined using CT for the first time in 1992, but recent advances in CT technology allowed the researchers to analyze the statue in 2007 with greater precision.
"CT has changed significantly since 1992," Dr. Huppertz said. "We can now acquire three-dimensional (3-D) images at a much higher resolution."
Dr. Huppertz and colleagues used a 64-section spiral CT technique with submillimeter section thickness to examine the bust and assess its conservation status, gain information on its creation and provide a 3-D surface reformation of the inner limestone sculpture.
The results showed that a multi-step process was used to create the sculpture. The stucco layer on the face and ears is very thin, but the rear part of the reconstructed crown contains two thick stucco layers. CT images showed several fissures and non-uniform bonding between the layers.
The inner limestone face was delicately sculpted and highly symmetric. Compared to the outer stucco face, the inner face exhibited some differences: less depth in the corners of the eyelids, creases around the corner of the mouth and cheeks, less prominent cheekbones and a slight bump on the ridge of the nose. The ears on the inner sculpture were similar to those visible on the exterior.
Thin-section CT was able to provide detailed images of the inner structure in a completely nondestructive manner and showed the limestone core to be not just a mold, but a skillfully rendered work of art. Retouching the creases in the corners of the mouth and smoothing the bump on the nose on the outer face may have been the artist's choice and reflective of the aesthetic ideals of that era.
CT findings also may be important in preventing future damage to the bust. The findings of multiple, varying layers of stucco, as well as fissures in the shoulders, lower surface of the bust and rear of the crown, indicate vulnerable areas requiring very careful handling, and pressure on the layers of thick stucco is to be avoided.
"Noninvasive CT technology and very advanced 3-D post-processing tools allow us greater insight into the internal composition and conservation status of the sculpture," Dr. Huppertz said. "This knowledge will greatly contribute to the preservation of this priceless antiquity."
The Nefertiti bust is part of the collection of the Egyptian Museum of Berlin and will be moved in October 2009 to the recently restored New Museum in the historical center of Berlin.

Miscellaneous jottings

The Meritic language is not Nilo-Saharan but Afro-Asiatic modern scholars show


"Research into the classification of Meroitic within a language family has consistently focused upon the Nilo-Saharan phylum (Trigger 1964, 1977, Bender 1981a, Hintze 1989, Peust 1999a, Aubin 2003, Rilly 2003, 2004a, 2005). However, this paper puts forward the proposal that the investigation should instead be concentrated on the Afroasiatic phylum. This is due to the process of consonantal compatibility restrictions being evident across languages within the Afroasiatic phylum, and that through the investigation set forward in this paper, it is found that these restrictions also exist in the Meroitic language.1 This investigation rests upon the firmest known aspect of the language, namely the phonemic values of the signs and their distribution. This paper discusses the literature on the proposed linguistic association of Meroitic with other languages. It is evidenced here that research into the linguistic association of Meroitic has focused specifically on the Nilo-Saharan phylum because data used in a paper by Zhylarz (1930) to show an affinity between Meroitic and Afroasiatic was discredited (Hintze 1955). Subsequently, so was the line of inquiry into Meroitic being a member of the Afroasiatic phylum.

The process of consonantal compatibility restrictions in languages across the Afroasiatic phylum is explained through subsections on a selection of these languages. This discussion then leads on to the core analysis of these restrictions in the Meroitic language. Further evidence is given which shows that the affiliation of Meroitic with the Nilo-Saharan Nubian language should finally be abandoned as this proposal consistently reappears even though it has drawn no conclusive evidence in the hundred years in which it has been constantly investigated. This paper is a small part of an investigation into Meroitic phonology that has wider implications for any linguistic analysis of the language. The investigation into consonantal compatibility restrictions was initiated through a reanalysis of a long-held supposition of the representation of the Meroitic vowel sign - e (Rowan 2006)."

Misc female workforce and educational data


"The National Merit Scholar procedure (undertaken in order to improve the gender mix in the candidate pool) is to choose potential scholarship recipients based on the math score plus two times the verbal score, but this does not lead to equal numbers of female and male recipients: in 1995-96, 39 percent of National Merit Scholars were female, even though 55 percent of students taking the PSAT.. were female. This led to a complaint by the organization FairTest, filed with the U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights, that led to the Educational Testing Service and College Board agreeing to add a writing skills section to the PSAT beginning with the high school class of 1999. This led to a significant reduction in the gender gap in qualifying test scores."
(Jacobsen.The economics of Gender. 2007.)

And as to “affirmative action: - quote:

Since 1972, all federal contractors and first-tier sub-contractors with 50 or more employees (or a contract worth $50,000 or more) must agree to "take affirmative action to ensure that applicants are employed and that employees are treated during employment without regard to their race, color, religion, sex or national origin.": These actions include maintaining written affirmative action plans containing goals and timetables for correcting deficiencies in equal employment opportunity. .."

The authors of one study cited by Jacobsen conclude that “affirmative action has had a modest effect in increasing white female employment.."
