    STAGETEXT, Fishing in the gene pool for Vikings

    Friday 23 May 2014, 18.30
    BP Lecture Theatre
    £5, Members/concessions £3

    The Vikings’ impact on Britain is clear from historical records, archaeological finds, our language and our place names. But how many Vikings actually came to Britain, and how many of us today are their descendants? Mark Jobling, Professor of Genetics at the University of Leicester, discusses how we can use genetics to address these questions.

    This event will have live speech-to-text transcription to give deaf and hard of hearing visitors access to the talk.

    Please arrive punctually to guarantee admission
