Description
Information
Archaeologists have long tried to answer our questions about the distant past. But sometimes a shard of pottery or a mummified body has more to tell us than ordinary techniques can reveal. This is where the extraordinary methods detailed in 'The Molecule Hunt' come in.

By analysing the faintest traces of DNA and other molecular residues, archaeologists can bring the vanished past vividly back to life. In this fascinating book Professor Martin Jones both explains these techniques and illustrates the amazing discoveries they have led to.
