Abstract

We will analyze the ancient genome sequences from different burial types including Chamber Burials and Boat Burials from the Iron Age Period from Scandinavia. We will investigate the genetic structure of different Iron Age sites, their relationships with published Iron Age individuals. We will also analyze fine-scale population structure by examining the biological kinship coefficient between the individuals excavated from the same burials. We will process and analyze large genome sequence data and perform population genetics analyses.
