The History of Agriculture and Early Human Movements
Dr Wolfgang Haak, Research Fellow, University of Adelaide
Recent ancient DNA studies have significantly increased our knowledge about human populations in the past. Dr Haak will present a summary of ancient human DNA studies performed at the University of Adelaide’s Australian Centre for Ancient DNA. These studies operate at the interface of human genetics, anthropology and archaeology, and tackle questions about the peopling of Eurasia before and after the Last Glacial Maximum, and discuss the processes which have formed of the genetic diversity we observe today.
