Fascinating animated map that shows the movements of populations across western Eurasia beginning in 8,000 BC, based on 1872 individual DNA datasets. I recommend running it with the "cultures" layer turned off; unless you know a lot of obscure archaeological terms this means nothing and even knowing them I found it distracting.
Kind of awesome, although of course it assumes that we can reliably identify Anatolian farmers or migrants from the steppes; I accept those identifications but not everybody does.
