Prof Sykes made news in 1994 by identifying a living descendant of a prehistoric man trapped in glacial ice in northern Italy. By isolating a gene which passes undiluted through the maternal line, he discovered that human DNA clusters around a tiny number of distinct groups, and that everyone of native European descent can trace their ancestry to one of 7 women. This is an engaging account of his method and wide-ranging case studies.
