Wow, just realized thats a very broad and eclactic group that have contributed to Pakistan's gene pool!
 


I believe its the Indus River Valley?
 
Its been called both, in Pakistan and most other countries, the archeological societies often uses the term: Indus Valley Civilization  (IVC for short) to refer to this ancient civilization located along the Pakistan's Indus river.   Indus River Valley is also used, but is less common. Smile

What about fenno-ugrian roots of Latvian population?

One of tribes which made Latvian population were Livonians - they are finno-ugrian. The rest were Baltic (indo -European) - Selonians, Latgallians, Semgallians, Curonians.

I didn't really get the it.

But we Azeris have been called Mountain Turkmens and Caucasian/Mountain Tatars before.

Georgians still call us Tatarebi and when Russians first conqured Caucasus, they called us Caucasian Tatars. Azeri term occured only after 1918.

My ancestors were called Danes. We're still called Danes. However, in Danish we're called Danskere, while the ancients were called Daner.
Of course, some may have been Jutes or Angles or whatnot, but that's impossible to say.
