“An ambitious and lucid full narrative account of the peopling of Europe . . . this will undoubtedly provide a base line for future debates on the origins of the Europeans.” ??"J. P. Mallory, author of In Search of the Indo-Europeans and The Origins of the IrishWho are the Europeans? Where did they come from? New research in the fields of archaeology and linguistics, a revolution in the study of genetics, and cutting-edge analysis of ancient DNA are dramatically changing our picture of prehistory, leading us to question what we thought we knew about these ancient peoples.
This paradigm-shifting book paints a spirited portrait of a restless people that challenges our established ways of looking at Europe??s past. The story is more complex than at first believed, with new evidence suggesting that the European gene pool was stirred vigorously multiple times. Genetic clues are also enhancing our understanding of European mobility in epochs with written records, including the arrival of the Anglo-Saxons, the spread of the Slavs, and the adventures of the Vikings.
Now brought completely up to date with all the latest findings from the fast-moving fields of genetics, DNA, and dating, Jean Manco??s highly readable account weaves multiple strands of evidence into a startling new history of the continent, of interest to anyone who wants to truly understand Europeans?? place in the ancient world.
