Det verkar även avvika kraftigt mellan tidigare angivna avlägsna hemorter för krigarna i Tollense, baserat på kemisk analys, och dna-analyser, som visar närområdena, för flertalet. Här dyker slaver upp.
"Chemical traces already suggested that warriors fighting in Tollense came from far away, with only a few showing values typical of the northern European plain. A recently published PhD dissertation, Addressing challenges of ancient DNA sequence data obtained with next generation methods, by Christian Sell (2017) has not confirmed this:
The majority of sampled individuals fall within the variation of contemporary northern central European samples (including Nordic Late Neolithic and Bronze Age and Únětice samples); however, there are also some outliers closer to Neolithic LBK and modern Basques, ...The genetic similarity of most samples to modern western Slavic populations (as well as Austrians and Scots) gives support to the origin of Balto-Slavic in Bronze Age north-central Europe, and more specifically in the Lusatian culture.https://indo-european.eu/2017/10/the-to ... c-origins/
