Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Martin Jones is the first holder of the George Pitt-Rivers Professorship of Archaeological Science at Cambridge University and was chairman of the international Ancient Biomolecules Initiative research program.

From Booklist

Bio-archaeology, the science that finds and studies ancient DNA, has inspired its share of science fiction, but as Jones shows, the work of bio-archaeologists like him sheds light on what the distant past was like in ways never before thought possible. Those who recall high-school or college biology may best appreciate his accounts of chloroplast genomes and molecular overcoats, but anyone interested in ancient history may find much of his findings compelling for their social and genealogical ramifications. He presents science as a detective story, and the spirit of discovery he and his group manifest when analyzing a fossilized seed or piece of rice is infectious. As he reflects on the countless changes in his discipline since he began as an archaeologist 30 years ago, his sense of adventure remains constant, for he knows that each new discovery makes the whole picture a shade clearer. Sans reanimated dinosaurs or Neanderthals, Jones makes ancient history less fictional and really no less fantastic. Will Hickman
