From correlations to explanations: towards a new European prehistory

Project description

Brining to light patterns of migration from 6 000 to 500 BC

Ancient DNA is transforming our understanding of how history unfolded. Contributing to our knowledge, the EU-funded COREX project aims to uncover the key processes behind the genetic and cultural diversity in Europe from the first farmers, 6 000 BC, to the end of the Bronze Age, 500 BC. To do this, it will employ an interdisciplinary research design by combining innovative modelling approaches with prehistoric human genomic, archaeological, environmental, stable isotope and climate data. The project's work will provide an improved understanding of migration, integration and cultural change, past to present.
