Anders Götherström, Professor, Stockholms Universitet will describe the early colonization of Scandinavia and dynamic history of nomadic groups on the western Steppe.
Patterns of genomic traits have the power to identify individuals and
also populations. By following these traits through time we are able to
spotlight prehistoric migratory events that we are otherwise not able
Anders will describe two events that we have recently identified with
paleogenomics. The first one being that of the early colonization of
Scandinavia, and how this peninsula came to be inhabited by
anatomically modern humans. The other one is a description of the
dynamic history of nomadic groups on the western Steppe. This area
was a melting-pot of different groups during the late Bronze Age and
early Iron Age.
