"A revolution is underway in archaeology. For the first time the molecular record of past life, entombed for millennia in archaeological and geological material, has become widely accessible to science. Miraculous-seeming techniques now allow ancient remains to speak volumes about a past we thought lost." For twenty-five years, Martin Jones's work has involved shifting the emphasis within archaeology from inert material objects to fragments of the living, breathing past. The Molecule Hunt uses Jones's perspective at the forefront of bio-archaeology to show how pioneering science is rewriting human history.
