Just out of curiosity what in the world is "European DNA?" since that is not a scientific term or even one that I am remotely familiar with I thought that perhaps you could clear it up....perhaps it was DNA that indicated a caucasoid person? or was it a DNA that showed some particular strain unique to Mediterranean peoples? or exactly what?...

Dr Joseph Lorenzo on the program was not very specific, he used the words 'European DNA'. Not sure exactly what that means and that was the first I've heard about this.
From the earlier thread I posted, they do seem to be doing some work comparing these Florida folks to the Jomon people of Japan although, this was not mentioned on the program.

On a side note to this, the Jomon people are identified by their unique pottery which is called 'cord' pottery. 'Cord' pottery has been found in the Olmec sites in Mexico.
