Lecture by Prof. Kristian Kristiansen
Towards a new European prehistory: genes, archaeology and language
Before the lecture, Saskia Stevens will give an update on the project and our junior researchers will briefly introduce their research.
In this lecture Kristian Kristiansen will discuss the nature of migrations, as well as their ecological and linguistic impact on the prehistory of Europe. Recent genetic evidence has demonstrated that the population of Europehad its genetics mix formed by three migrations: hunter gatherers, later replaced by Anatolian farmers in the 6th millennium BC, and finally steppe nomads during the early to mid 3rd milennium BC.
