'It is thrilling in its clarity and its scope.’ – The Guardian

A ground-breaking new study of how ancient DNA has fundamentally changed how we understand human history.

David Reich, Professor of Genetics at Harvard Medical School, is one of the world’s leading pioneers in the analysis of ancient human DNA. In this revelatory new book he describes how the revolution in the ability to sequence ancient DNA has changed our understanding of the deep human past.

What emerges is a story of our often surprising ancestry, from the extraordinary ancient migrations and mixtures of populations that have made us who we are to deep inequalities among different populations, between the sexes, and among individuals.

Who We Are and How We Got Here is a captivating glimpse into humankind—where we came from and what that says about our lives today.
