DNA migration corridor: Euphrates — Kura-Araxes-Çoruh-Aragvi — Terek


DNA migration corridor: Euphrates — Kura-Araxes-Çoruh-Aragvi — Terek (Like “Rhine-Danube corridor”) [1]

Mesolithic period or Middle Stone Age, period in human development between the end of the Paleolithic period and the beginning of the Neolithic period. It began with the end of the last glacial period over 10,000 years ago and evolved into the Neolithic period; this change involved the gradual domestication of plants and animals and the formation of settled communities at various times and places.

Characteristic of the period were hunting and fishing settlements along rivers.

East Anatolia and Caucasus can not be analised as a plain territory, where moving ability of group of humans is possible to any direction. Moving ability is hardly determined by physical geography factors: mountains, river stream beds and high mountain paths.
Red lines showing principal paths for actually all migrations here (also pre-Homo sapiens) — Y-DNA J…, G… and R…. Some migrations were S2N others N2S. Movements were roughly determined by relief and so, were to use best (most ergonomic) way and this was along rivers.

Map shows chain of river “stream beds” and available mountain paths — “Corridor” in “inexpugnable” (hard-to-reach, труднодоступный) mountainous region which can be used for spreading some DNA carrier ancient population groups moving from South to North or vise-verse.
