Human Behaviour and Evolution

This cluster engages in innovative work that combines archaeology, anthropology, art, biological evolution, cognitive science, genetics, linguistics, neuroscience and music, which combined with parallel work in archaeology, genetics, and bioanthropology at the Leverhulme Centre for Human Evolutionary Studies has made Cambridge a notable world centre.


The Glyn Daniel Laboratory for Archaeogenetics has underpinned work on both human migrations and human palaeoecology and innovative research on the former, linking archaeology, genetics, and language, has included the intensive surveying of mitochondrial patterns of global human diversity and the exploration of phylogenetic analysis to language development.
