Who do we think we are – now? A talk by Dr Roger Martlew
Recent developments in processing ancient DNA (aDNA) are proving to be as great a revolution in archaeology as radiocarbon dating. Without going into intricate technical details, this talk will look at the impact that aDNA studies are having alongside the equally revolutionary insights from stable isotope analysis. It may sound like daunting science, but what it really means is that we can get so much closer to the lives of people who lived thousands of years ago, and better understand who our ancestors really were.
