Birth of the Modern European
DNA from ancient skeletons can provide a unique insight into the genetic material of extinct species, and can give us detailed knowledge of human evolution and prehistoric migrations. Who were the first European hunter-gatherers? Where did the first farmers come from in the Stone Age? And why have today's Danes 30% of their genes in common with a 5000 years old shepherd people who lived on the steppes north of the Caucasus?
