    Unhappy Jean Manco passed away



    I have just been informed that Jean Manco passed away on 25th March due to lymphatic cancer, which she had had for a number of years.

    For those of you who don't know her, she was a British academic and was well known in the population genetics community for her website Ancestral Journeys (which has already been taken down unfortunately). She wrote the following books:

    Ancestral Journeys: The Peopling of Europe from the First Venturers to the Vikings (which I warmly recommend)

    Blood of the Celts: The New Ancestral Story (I haven't read it yet, but just ordered it)

    The Origins of the Anglo-Saxons: The New Ancestral Story (which she managed to finish and will be published in October 2018)
    My book selection---Follow me on Facebook and Twitter --- My profile on Academia.edu and on ResearchGate ----Check Wa-pedia's Japan Guide

    She was an erudite, intelligent, and reasonable woman. The population genetics community is poorer for her loss.
