Kelif el Boroud

Kelif el Boroud, also known as Kehf el Baroud,[1] is an archaeological site in Morocco. It is located to the south of Rabat, near Dar es Soltan.[2]

Human fossils excavated in the area have been radiocarbon-dated to the Late Neolithic, around 3,000 BCE. Ancient DNA analysis of these specimens indicates that they carried the broadly-distributed paternal haplogroup T-M184 as well as the maternal haplogroups K1, T2 and X2, the latter of which were common mtDNA lineages in Neolithic Europe and Anatolia.[3]
