ABSTRACT
Genetic analyses of human remains can complement the analysis of the material culture allowing the exploration of the connections among prehistoric communities in the way that is not possible by archaeology alone. We present a survey of archaeogenetic information about the Eurasian steppe, from the Neolithic to the Bronze Age. The steppe appears to be more genetically homogenous than the neighboring farming communities. The genetic composition of the North Pontic steppe was formed on the local substrate with contribution of lineages from the entire span of the steppe.
