Ancient human DNA: A history of hype (then and now)


By: E. Jones n & E. Boesl

author keywords: Ancient DNA; ancient humans; hype cycle; contamination; celebrity; history of science
TL;DR: The concept of contamination is used, in both a literal and figurative understanding of the term, to explore the field’s continuities and disparities and argues that a number of additional, figurative interpretations of “contamination” are useful for navigating the current debate between geneticists and archaeologists regarding the origin, evolution, and migration of ancient humans across space and time.
