Scytho-Siberian Kurgan – Individual SEB 96 K2

Remains of a 2 – 3 year old male child discovered in a Scytho-Siberian Kurgan (dating back 2,500 years) in the valley of the Sebystei River.

The mtDNA analysis showed this individual belonged to haplogroup D, which is highly frequent in Asian populations. The particular haplotype of SEB 96 K2 was found mainly in Chukotkan (Eskimo Siberian, and Chukchi) and Kamtchatkan populations.
