"In this article I discuss how ancient DNA (aDNA) has the potential to provide powerful new insights into humanity’s past. It may seem odd for such comments to come from someone who considers himself an American Southwest archaeologist; however, my role in the Reich Laboratory of Medical and Population Genetics as a liaison between geneticists and archaeologists has allowed me to critically examine the relationship between these two fields and to explore how they work together."
