I was wondering if anyone knew what the British Isles J1's are supposed to represent, historically speaking?  I know they are supposed to be prominent in the introduction of agriculture into Europe in the Neolithic period, but does this mean they were instrumental in forming the cultures who produced dolmens, Stonehenge, etc?  Or did they perhaps arrive later, even perhaps with the Roman invasion?  What explains the frequency of J1 in Western Britain, particularly?

I'm a T1 myself, also with a Western Britain matrilineal origin. We Ts are close cousins of you Js. I would like to think my mtDNA arrived on the island with a Celtic wave of immigrants, but I haven't seen any research to support this.

I am also J1 extended to J1b1 which is said to be isolated pretty much in British Isles and one pocket of it in Italy with descendants, naturallly, in the USA.  I've had a hard time finding more information particularly about what each mutation means.  Does anyone have more info on J1b1 data?
