Cheddar Man and the genetic prehistory of Britain - The story so far....


Cheddar Man and the genetic prehistory of Britain
Thursday 26 November at 8pm Via ZOOM


by Dr Tom Booth Crick Institute (joint talk MAS/AiM)



The last 10 years has seen a revolution in the way that we study DNA extracted from ancient human remains. These revitalised techniques are providing rich insight into the demographic prehistory of Europe. This talk will discuss major stories emerging from the analysis of ancient human remains from Britain, including the 10,000 year old Cheddar Man, Britain's oldest mostly-complete skeleton. These results are beginning to paint a radical new picture of the people who inhabited Britain before written records began.'
