ANCIENT DNA

Ancient DNA Update 11.1.17

 

Meeting with University of Copenhagen on 22.12.16 to update progression of Ancient DNA and have been told that the initial analysis done of 6 of the 17 samples show quality is excellent.

 

The human material from Tomb of the Otters is the only samples being looked at in the whole of the UK. The 17 samples are part of 483 total samples throughout Europe. Funding has been obtained that will guarantee the project to be finished.

 

Final results will take a further year before they are published. These results and other information will scientifically tell us where these Neolithic people actually came from.
