  • Vaterschaftstest für Pharaoby Dirk Husemann

    Konrad Theiss Verlag 2012; US$ 36.24

    So umstritten Genetik in der modernen Medizin ist, so einstimmig begrüßen Historiker und Archäologen die neuen Methoden, denn die Gene verraten nicht nur, wie der Mensch entstand, sondern auch, wie er die Erde besiedelte und sie sich untertan machte. Ja sogar prähistorische Mordfälle geraten ins Visier der Genetiker: So wirft etwa die molekularbiologische... more...
