Mapping Human History - Unravelling the Mystery of Adam and Eve - bySteve Olson. Though it relies on the same genetic research as the other booksdescribed here, this one often transcends specific discussions of haplotypes inorder to focus on more "social" factors, and some of the conclusionsare fascinating. . .

The Journey of Man - A Genetic Odyssey - by Spencer Wells. LikeOppenheimer and Sykes, Spencer Wells conducted actual genetic research around theworld (in cooperation with the National Geographic Society) to connect variouspeoples to pre-historic ancestors. Mediterranean and European connections aredealt with here, and (with Out of Eden) this book is a very goodintroduction to the topic. Wells' work was the basis of an interestingdocumentary for National Geographic now available on DVD (and presently includedwith test kits from the Genographic Project). . .

In Search of the Indo-Europeans - Language, Archaeology and Myth - byJ.P. Mallory. First published in 1989, this book's perspective is slightly datedand the text contains no reference to genetic research (such as Cavalli-Sforza'slandmark work in genetics and linguistics), but it makes at least one passingreference to Siculan, the language of the ancient Sicels. Sicily's Elymians areignored altogether, though the (presumably) non-Indo-European Etruscans arementioned, and it has been postulated that the Elymians and Etruscans might sharecommon or similar origins. Nevertheless, the author presents an insightfulreconstruction of what Proto-Indo-European society must have been. This is animportant element in understanding the earliest civilizations that emerged fromthe darkness of prehistory, influencing early-historic Sicily. A good companionvolume to Cavalli-Sforza's (above). . .

It has been plausibly suggested that M172 may be associated with the arrivalof neolithic farmers from the Fertile Crescent who were the probable predecessorsof the Indo-European society which later emerged in western Asia, a"hypothetical" society whose culture and language greatly influencedprehistoric peoples from India to Ireland. The language of Sicily's Sicaniansdoes not seem to have had Indo-European roots, though the issue is far fromconclusive. However, the comparatively sophisticated farmers from the East musthave had an influence in prehistoric Sicily as elsewhere in the Mediterranean andwestern Europe (only the Basques' ancestors may have been largely untouched bythe earliest Proto-Indo-European influences). Later, it is unlikely that theIndo-Europeans actually supplanted entire populations; they probably represent aninflux of a few migratory waves of settlers whose language and culture greatlyinfluenced those of peoples already present. Lines bearing haplotype M172 couldhave arrived in Sicily with various waves of colonisers from the South and East--Elymians (probably from Anatolia), Phoenicians (and Carthaginians), Greeks,Byzantines and Arabs among them --but possibly from some Romans and (in the late 1400s) Albanians as well. (Theseobservations, like those about M173, are only intended as generalities.)

We are on more solid ground in describing the civilizations of thePhoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Arabs and Normans of Sicily throughextensive literary, archeological, linguistic and artistic evidence. Theirmigrations and activities are well-chronicled. Historians occasionally debate themerits of certain particularly detailed events, but not the most fundamentalhistorical facts (migration, colonization, amalgamation) which complementknowledge drawn from genetic data.
