Turkic people origins

Recommended Posts

It is generally agreed that the first Turkic people lived in a region extending from Central Asia to Siberia, with the majority of them living in China historically.

Anyone would expect then, that Turkic people are Mongoloids originally. However they often feature facial features and haplogroups those more typical to Europids than Mongoloids.

For example Uyghur people often look differently from Chinese.

Only minority of Tatars feature well pronounced Mongoloid features.

Only small minority of Turkish have haplogroups typical to Mondoloid nations (Mongolia, China).

How could it be explained?

So, originally they were Mongoloid and looked like Mongols or Chinese? What were their haplogroups initially?

Can I just thank you for providing evidence that the "races" people talk about have no basis in reality?

What Mr Cuthber said...

 

I'll add on other thing....you've got you knickers in a twist here based on a *single* sentence in a Wikipedia article! Wikipedia!

 

It appears you may even have mis-read it, too. The sentence was referring to the first people who inhabited what is today Turkey; "It is generally agreed that the *first* Turkic people lived...". Since that time Turkey, being where it is, over the centuries has had large numbers of people moving in and out of the area such that now it is peopled by those who ancestors came from all over the region, including the Caucasus.

You may want to look at the approximate maps of human migration out there. None are certain but may give you additional insight. Most are a mess of arrows.
