Re: No evidence from you yet, jar. Please provide
First post so try not to be too harsh :)

Ancient human DNA is a fascination subject , there are a couple of other examples

Cheddar Man - found in Gough’s Cave in Cheddar Gorge, UK . It is the oldest human skeleton found in the UK , dated back to 7150 BCE.

In 1997 , Bryan Sykes , Oxford University managed to extract the mitochondrial DNA from Cheddar man's teeth (apparently it is in haplogroup U).

Amazingly there managed this DNA was very similar to the DNA of the current residents of Cheddar , with two exact matches and one match with only one mutation (to a history teacher called Adrian Target) , which is pretty amazing



Several mummies mitochondrial DNA has been extracted (all around 1500 BC) by Professor Scott Woodward , showing a lot of about how the mummies where interrelated.


And much nearer in time apparently the mtDNA of the body attributed to Luke the Evangelist in Padua, Italy has been tested

Hopefully people have found some of this interesting.
