It is a story told with all the enthusiasm of one who has been among the pioneers. The birth of molecular archaeology is a scientific revolution that is transforming our concepts of the past." Barry Cunliffe, author of The Ancient Celts

"An immensely absorbing account of modern molecular archaeology ... Jones writes with clarity and marvelous control, with elegance, wit, and large helpings of brilliance." Financial Times
