Our work on tracing Viking-age population movements inside and out of Scandinavia. This was a massive effort involving tons of people and 4+ years of work. Congrats to Ashot Margaryan, , Dan Lawson and the entire team!
A great example of Big Picture science. Studying all these samples together allows for the piecing together of the first unified aDNA narrative on the Vikings which will enable in the future more specialized studies.
Population genomics of the Viking world ...to understand the genetic structure and influence of the Viking expansion, we sequenced the genomes of 442 ancient humans from across Europe and Greenland ranging from the Bronze Age to the early Modern period.

Population genomics of the Viking world. Ashot Margaryan, Post Doc and Project Lead discusses this preprint paper. Daniel Lawson #PopulaltionGenomics #AncientDNA #VikingAge
An absolutely stunning paper. The scale, extent of analysis done and the results are outstanding! Midway through the supplement and I don't want to hit the end, been such an amazing 2hrs of reading...
Population genomics of the Viking world
Viking ancestry is touted as pure by #WhiteSupremacists. Molecular data show that the Vikings were mutts (admixed populations) as all other humans on Earth. #AncientDNA
Population genomics of the Viking world
Important new preprint: "Population genomics of the Viking era". Genomes of 442 ancient humans from across Europe and Greenland (c. 2400 BC to c.1600 CE) with particular emphasis on the Viking Age.

Well this is cool
