What accounts for the difference?

Does DNA.Land trace things farther back as I'm allegedly told?

No. Different labs use different algorithms (including Machine Learning) to get the ethnical compound. Also they have different basic populations and reference values. So it is not big surprise that they will give you different results. If you would like to get more results and have a total mess in your head, I recommend you to upload your RAW DNA results to GEDMATCH site. It is free and there are dozens of different ethnocalculators. I hope you will be interested and get more precise results about your ethno mix up. Also please use all these results with the grain of salt, because it is really very new part of science and every model has it's own probability and limits.

P.S. Another thing I know is that DNA.Land is going to shut down or full restart of project.
