I posted just 10 days ago about my new endeavor - the Roman DNA Project. With a group of 48 other scientists, I put together a crowdfunding proposal and put my ideas out there for the public to consider. And, boy, have you responded! We've already raised over $2,600 for ancient DNA analysis, and we've attracted the attention of international news agencies and blogs.
Check out the links below and, of course, consider making a donation so that we can reach our funding goal and test all the immigrants to Rome to see where they came from.
