'Ancestral Journeys: The Peopling of Europe from the First Venturers to the Vikings' by Jean Manco


Release date: 9th September 2013
Published by: Thames and Hudson Ltd
ISBN No: 978 0500051788


This pioneering book brings together for the first time the latest genetic evidence and combines it with archaeology and linguistics to produce a new history of Europe. Who are the Europeans? Where did they come from? In recent years scientific advances have yielded a mass of new data, turning cherished ideas upside down. The idea of migration in prehistory, so long out of favour, is back on the agenda. Visions of continuity now have to give way to a more dynamic view of Europes past, with one wave of migration followed by another, from the first human arrivals to the Vikings.
