They also said this:

"Ancient Egyptians were closely related to people who lived along the eastern Mediterranean, the analysis showed. They also shared genetic material with residents of the Turkish peninsula at the time and Europe."

Implying that the people were related to Europeans and not Middle Easterners or Africans.

These results need to be peer reviewed and also the sample size needs to be increased to be certain. They have only done one small village in the middle of Egypt, and the time period is only from the New Kingdom forward (relatively recent in the long history of Egypt). It is also possible that Northern Egyptians (Lower Egypt) were more European (With the many incursions of invaders), and Southern Egyptians (Upper Egypt) were more African. It will take more samples from different areas and older time periods to truly determine what the results are, and they need to be peer reviewed by African scientists too.

In the end, we have to remember that Egypt was a world power at one point, and had many different people within her borders. Just like today, many people normally congregate, socialize, and procreate with their own for the most part. If we went 2000 years into the future and took DNA samples from ancient Washington DC residences, it would leave that future generation with the impression that the US was mainly populated with Black People. So this one study is not conclusive at all.

But the conclusion says this:


"... This study left two gaps in the Egyptian timeline that Krause wants to fill, he said. It is not clear when the African gene flow, present in modern Egyptians, occurred. Nor could the study determine the origin of the Egyptians. “The other big question is, 'Where did the ancient Egyptians come from?' ” Krause said. To answer that, scientists will have to find genomes “back further in time, in prehistory.”

Point well made.......

In regards to "Ancient Egyptians" slated in the article's title, the conclusion is below, thus presenting circular, inclusion :facepalm: double-talk, forked tongue.

Earliest Ever Homo Sapiens Discovered in Morocco Forces Major Rethink of Human Evolution

The earliest Homo sapiens fossils ever found have been unearthed at a site in Morocco, in northwest Africa—far away from the “cradle of humanity” of southern and East Africa we tend to associate with the birthplace of our species ...

Skull find in Ethiopia yields new clues on how humans evolved

...from the younger Lucy -- the ancient ancestor of modern humans -- and shows that the two species may have co-existed for about 100,000 years.
"This skull is one of the most complete fossils of hominids more than 3 million years old," said Yohannes Haile-Selassie, the renowned Ethiopian paleoanthropologist of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History who is a co-author of two studies published Wednesday in the journal Nature.
