Alice Roberts "Ancestors - Burial Archaeology and Ancient DNA"
In this week's Crick Lecture, Professor Alice Roberts will discuss themes from her new book- BURIED, with researchers from the Crick’s Ancient DNA lab.
Discover how archaeology and genetics are joining forces to shed light on Ancient Britain and hear about the collaborations between Alice and the Ancient Genomics Lab at the Crick.
Buried: An Alternative History of the First Millennium in Britain is the latest book by Professor Alice Roberts - described as "Tender, fascinating … Lucid and illuminating" by Robert Macfarlane of The Sunday Times. Alice combines archaeological finds with cutting-edge DNA research and written history to shed fresh light on how people lived: by examining the stories of the dead.

In 2001, Alice made her television debut on Channel 4’s Time Team, and went on to write and present The Incredible Human Journey, Origins of Us and Ice Age Giants on BBC2.
