Meet The Family

Yesterday was Father’s Day, so it seems appropriate to wonder who our long past Mum’s and Dad’s were.

As the geneticists delve deeper and deeper into the DNA of modern humans this is becoming less and less clear by the year.

These are some very recent research findings and doubtless with more to come.

It adds an interesting dimension to the debates on diversity and ethnicity. As for how I got here, all I can say is “no comment”.

And of course, “Beam me up, Scotty!”
