Anything is possible, I suppose. I wouldn't be surprised if some individuals did in fact journey that far. This was interesting:

Quote:Prowse's team cannot say how recently he, or his ancestors, left East Asia: he could have made the journey alone, or his East Asian genes might have come from a distant maternal ancestor.

So I guess this means that the trip from the East could have taken several generations.

If it is being published in the Journal of Roman Archaeology, it will be opened up to review by peers and we'll see if there are any dissenting opinions.

Good find!
