The aim of this PhD project will be to generate and analyse genome-wide human ancient DNA data for a large sample (n>400) of human skeletal remains from different archaeological contexts in the eastern Mediterranean and the Balkans to explore the effects of migration on the fate of Bronze Age societies towards the end of the Bronze Age around 1200 BC. During the first phase of the PhD, the project will be largely lab-based generating genome-wide ancient DNA data for analysis. During the second phase of the PhD, the project will concentrate on data analysis using standard, as well as more advanced, methods in ancient human genomics and focusing on questions relating to the role of migration in the collapse of Europe's Bronze Age societies, kinship structures, and social organization.
