Research Description

The domestication of animals has played a crucial role in human evolution, allowing the transition from a foraging lifestyle to farming. This has meant that the influence of humans in their environment caused them to evolve hand in hand with the fauna around them. During my PhD, I’ll be using genomics to analyse human and animal remains from Central Europe, spanning from the Palaeolithic to the Early Middle Ages, with the aim to better understand how the evolution in their relationship has affected their genetic composition to generate current populations.
