I thought perhaps if such a project became World popular, perhaps the archaeological community could access such a project for sponsored aDNA testing.
I fear the World is lagging behind on what snp's are available to test.

Perhaps such a project would recieve a fair amount of donated $$ for sensable testings.

This puts me in mind of the "crowdfunding" model that was applied, successfully I think, by Kristina Kilgrove at Vanderbilt for a Roman cemetery DNA study.  I don't think she had enough funding to do Y-DNA, though.

One of the problems is that the people analyzing ancient Y-DNA factor in the cost of their multi-million dollar lab, and million dollar sequencer, charge $10,000 or so to insure that the sample isn't contaminated, and then run the $29 test for one SNP, or whatever.

I have to think there might be a more quick-and-dirty approach.  I recognize that dirty is a dirty word; but these bones have been underground for a few thousand years.  And they do stuff somewhat akin to washing them in Clorox and baking them.
