On 18 October, CitiGen post-doc Bart Lambert was interviewed on BBC Radio Humberside’s Phil White Show about alien identities in the East Riding of Yorkshire during the later Middle Ages. Bart also gave a talk on the subject for the Hull branch of the Historical Association on 20 October.
CitiGen is an international research project that aims to study how modern and ancient genomic data are being used to shape public understandings of the past.
Headquartered at the Natural History Museum of Denmark, CitiGen involves academic partners from Iceland, Ireland, and the UK, as well as non-academic partners from the fields of genetic ancestry testing, family tree research, and public engagement with science.
The project is funded by the Humanities in the European Research Area (HERA) Joint Research Programme “Uses of the Past”.
