Alzualde successfully performed some amount of investigation on Y
chromosomes too, but I can find only one sentence on his results:
Furthermore, two individuals in a group burial in the SE revealed the
existence of a mutation in the Y chromosome (haplogroup R1b3b; unpublished
data), considered to originate in the Basque Country, where it now presents
the highest frequency in Europe (7.1%, as opposed to 0.9% in the Iberian
Peninsula; Alonso et al., 2005).
In other words, he found M65, the SNP for what we now call R1b1c2.
