Cutting Edge Research on DNA and Plague in Bronze Age Societies

News: Oct 26, 2015

CHS coordinator Kristian Kristiansen and a team of researchers have recently published new results that give evidence that plague infections were common in humans 3,300 years earlier than the historical record suggests. By sequencing the DNA of tooth samples from Bronze Age individuals from Europe and Asia, the researchers discovered evidence of plague infections roughly 4,800 years ago. The study was published October 22 in Cell. The pressrelease can be found here.
