David Reich visit


Professor David Reich of the Harvard Medical School visited the RLAHA to give a talk at the regular Palaeolithic and Quaternary seminar series and we were fortunate to be able to meet and discuss joint research and the PalaeoChron project. David and Svante Paabo, and their respective groups, have been at the heart of the genetic research inot Denisovans and Neanderthals, and their contribution to modern human genomes. As well as being a population geneticist David is also seriously involved in the archaeological side of the research, and is well versed in the key archaeological debates regarding the Neolithic transition, the question of the origins of the Indo-European language family and past prehistoric migrations and human movements, as well as many other areas. His talk at Jesus College here in Oxford was entitled "Ancient DNA documents three ancestral populations for present-day Europeans".
