This paper describes archaeogenetic data mining results based on a novel mitochondrial and y-chromosome haplogroup distance metric. The analysis shows that the Minoan genes are composed of two originally distinct groups. One group was the descendant of Mesolithic European hunter-gatherers, while the other group was from Neolithic farmer populations from Anatolia. These groups intermingled in the Danube Basin and the western Black Sea littoral area for thousands of years as indicated by the presence of mutations that appear first in those areas. A group from that population migrated southward to Crete to form the Minoan culture. © 2019 North Atlantic University Union NAUN. All rights reserved.
