About This Webinar

Our human past leaves traces in our genomes, via population size
changes, admixture events and migration patterns. Via genetic analyses,
we can therefore read human history from our genomes, which adds
critically to our growing body of pre-historical evidence from archaeology and
linguistics. In this talk, I will introduce the field of historical population
genetics, and showcase three examples: First, I will show how our genomes
contain information about the origins of our species in Africa, in the deep past.
Second, I will demonstrate how we can use ancient DNA from Anglo-Saxon
remains in Great Britain to investigate the nature and consequences of the
Anglo-Saxon migration period. Third, I will introduce our most recent project,
in which we use ancient and modern DNA to investigate the peopling of North
