Diaspora, migration, and the sciences: a new integrated perspective
The study of human migration since the Bronze Age is ready for a new view as archeological studies incorporate ancientDNA (aDNA) analysis of human, animal and plant remains,pathogens and the systematic use of big data.
Genetic affiliations within a 19th century burial ground at Darwen, Lancashire, UK
We used ancient DNA sequencing to assign mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) haplogroups to 29 individuals from a 19th century Primitive Methodist burial ground in Darwen, Lancashire, UK.
Skeletal Anomalies in The Neandertal Family of El Sidrón (Spain) Support A Role of Inbreeding in Neandertal Extinction
Neandertals disappeared from the fossil record around 40,000 bp, after a demographic history of small and isolated groups with high but variable levels of inbreeding, and episodes of interbreeding with other Paleolithic hominins. It is reasonable to expect that high levels of endogamy could be expressed in the skeleton of at least some Neandertal groups.
A Y Chromosome Census of the British Isles
By analyzing 1772 Y chromosomes from 25 predominantly small urban locations, we found that different parts of the British Isles have sharply different paternal histories; the degree of population replacement and genetic continuity shows systematic variation across the sampled areas.
Analysis of the Preserved Amino Acid Bias in Peptide Profiles of Iron Age Teeth From a Tropical Environment Enable Sexing of Individuals Using Amelogenin MRM
We describe the first dental proteomic profiles of Iron Age individuals (c2000‐1000 years B.P), collected from the site of Long Long Rak rock shelter (LLR) in northwest Thailand.
