The Caucasus Mountians (DNA Tree research)
Some time I ago I posted my DNA results (http://www.freedomwall.info/post/5814539/dna-results-are-in-i-might-have-crusade-blood-after-all) Less than 1% of me has blood in The Caucasus. The Caucasus is a region at the border of Europe and Asia situated between the Black and the Caspian seas. Politically, the Caucasus region is separated between northern and
southern parts. The southern parts consist of independent sovereign
states, and the northern parts are under the jurisdiction of the Russian Federation.

The main countries consisting of The Caucasus are:
- Armenia
- Azerbaijan
- Georgia
- Iran
- Russia
- Turkey

My DNA results say less than 1% of me is here, some of it is estimated to go as far as Israel and Syria. I decided to learn more about this region and find a few pictures. I'm glad I did, it is absolutely breathtaking.

This picture I found (with original posting here: https://dorsetcountymuseum.wordpress.com/2013/01/29/events-undiscovered-caucasus-art-archaeology-and...) spoke the most to me. The remaining leftovers of medieval times are beautiful and mixes well with the modern land in the back.

I've posted that I've always had the fantasy of having blood coming from the Crusades, and since I have some blood in Turkey, where 3 Crusades took place there is a very high possibility. Looking at other pictures around the web bring more light to my search and the scenery is amazing, I can definitely see Crusades and other battles happening in the region.

 


  • SimMan That's the region of the earliest civilizations ruled by Kings I believe. It is literally the Middle Kingdom. Keep it up my friend!
