This course focuses on what ancient DNA and related disciplines can reveal about the prehistory of humans and wild organisms.
This includes exploring the dynamics of climate change, the Ice Age Megafauna and how humans evolved, left Africa and the later histories of Neanderthals and modern humans. Several lectures will be given by scientists who were directly involved in these studies.
