This is a history of who you are and how you came to be. It is also our collective story, because in every one of our genomes we each carry the history of our species - births, deaths, disease, war, famine, and migration. In this captivating journey through the expanding landscape of genetics, Adam Rutherford reveals what our genes now tell us about history, and what history tells us about our genes. From Neanderthals to murder, from redheads to race, dead kings to plague, evolution to epigenetics, this is a demystifying and illuminating new portrait of who we are and how we came to be.
