Biomolecular insights into North African-related ancestry, mobility and diet in eleventh-century Al-Andalus

Uniparental genetic background of the Segorbe Giant We confirmed that the individual was genetically male (RY > 0.077; Supplementary Fig. S3), and both his uniparental markers point towards North African origins (Supplementary Table S2). He belongs to mtDNA haplogroup U6a1a1a (nomenclature according to Hernández et al.28). Although U6 in general, and U6a in…
