This article is rather long but very informative.
Due to its length, I will only post the first paragraph. The rest of the article can be found at the link above.



The worlds of ancient and modern DNA exploration have collided in spectacular fashion in the past few months. Last week saw the publication of a long-awaited draft genome of the Neanderthal, an archaic hominin from about 40,000 years ago. Just three months earlier, researchers in Denmark reported the genome of a 4,000-year-old Saqqaq Palaeo-Eskimo that was plucked from the Greenland permafrost and sequenced in China using the latest technology.

Thank you for posting this.

"Using ancient genomes to trace the course of prehistoric migrations"
Anyone who's interested in the sweep of human history will want them to press on with the work as fast as they can.
