We look forward to welcoming Ian Armit, Professor in Iron Age Archaeology at the University of York to the Society who will discuss his work on the analysis of migration into Britain in the late Bronze Age by using DNA technology in a recent research project which worked in collaboration with David Reich of Harvard Medical School. The results revealed evidence of an unexpected large-scale migration from the near European continent in the later Bronze Age and included samples from the square barrow cemetery at Burnby Lane Pocklington and a further two samples recovered from burials at Nunburnholme Wold.
The lecture will take place, as always in LT1, Wilberforce Building, University of Hull and is free of charge to ERAS members. Non-members can attend for a £2 fee on the door.
The lecture will also be streamed live digitally to ERAS members who will receive a digital link nearer to the time.
We do like to see you in person though and look forward to seeing you there.
