Lichtenstein Cave

Members of haplogroup I2b2 often are nicknamed ‘Lichtensteiners’ because thirteen, 3000 year old, I2b2-skelettons were found in the Lichtenstein cave in Osterode am Harz.




STR analysis of the Y-DNA showed that out of the 19 men (according the Whit Athey Haplogroup Predictor https://home.comcast.net/~hapest5/hapest5b/hapest5.htm?order=num) 13 belonged to haplogroup I2b2. These 13 members of haplogroup I2b2 could be assigned to 4 haplotypes: Y1, Y2, Y4 en Y6.

*: Uncertain
The Lichtenstein-men not belonging to haplogroup I, mainly belong to haplogroup R1b S21+ (aka R1b1c9), which is common in Northwest Germany and Frisia.
Network analysis shows that Y6 and Y1 are members of haplogroup I2b2-B and are closely related, Y2 probably belongs to haplogroup I2b2-C (probably a variant of I2b2-B). Because of the lack of sufficient STR values the haplogroup of Y4 is not clear.
