The Genographic Project by National Geographic
Since its launch in 2005, National Geographic’s Genographic Project has used advanced DNA analysis and worked with indigenous communities to help answer fundamental questions about where humans originated and how we came to populate the Earth.
In August 2012 the University of Leicester began the search for the missing grave of King Richard III, the last English king to die in battle. They announced their discovery in February 2014, and the remains received a proper royal burial in March 2015.
Selected videos showcasing the King Richard III identification case: the genetic and genealogical analysis, and the archaelogigal dig.
