    DescriptionIn 1997, Professor Bryan Sykes, a leading authority on DNA and human evolution, was called in to examine the frozen remains of a man trapped in glacial ice in Northern Italy. The frozen man was put at over five thousand years old, and Professor Sykes managed to track down a genetic descendant of the Ice Man, a woman living in Britain today. In this title, Professor Sykes provides a first-hand account of his research into a gene which passes undiluted from generation to generation through the maternal line and shows how it is being used to track our genetic ancestors. The professor demonstrates how almost anyone of European descent, wherever they live in the world, can trace their ancestry back to one of seven women. This is a scientific journey that shows exactly how our origins can be traced, where our ancestors lived and how we are all proof of the miraculous strength of DNA.
