Integrating genetic, archaeological and historical perspectives on Eastern Central Europe, 400-900 CE

Project description

Cutting-edge methods to analyse 6 000 samples from ancient graves

The Carpathian Basin witnessed major population shifts between 400 and 900 CE. During this period, tribes such as the Pannonians, Romans, Goths, Gepids, Longobards, Avars, Bulgars, Slavs and Franks came and went. The EU-funded HistoGenes project will analyse 6 000 samples from graves using cutting-edge scientific methods to contextualise the interpretation of these data in their archaeological and historical setting. The project comprises an intriguing test case that focusses on the relationship between ethnic identities constructed in texts, cultural habits attested in the archaeological record and genetic profiles that can now be analysed through ancient DNA.
