This will upset a lot of activist types

Verena Schuenemann, a paleogeneticist from the University of Tübingen and one of the lead authors of the mummy study, said that the best-preserved DNA showed an individual with light skin, dark eyes, and lactose intolerance — a good genetic match with the people of Neolithic Anatolia (modern-day Turkey).
Very bad for the 'out of Africa!' crowd.  So they'll probably accuse the researchers of being racist or something.
