Eurasia3angle becomes Archaeolinguistic Research Group

The group will review five years of research and discuss the use of archaeology, linguistics and genetics in triangulating the origins of Transeurasian languages in an upcoming lecture series

Lecture schedule

In an upcoming lecture series, the Eurasia3angle Research Group will present a synthesis of 5 years of ERC-funded research and announce that the group will continue as the “Archaeolinguistic Research Group” in the future. The key objective of the group’s research is to triangulate genetics, archaeology and linguistics in a unified perspective on the origin and dispersal of the Transeurasian languages, i.e. Japanese, Korean, Tungusic, Mongolic and Turkic. Their results bring together different windows into human prehistory and shed new light on Northeast Asia, one of the great theaters of human evolution.

The lecture series will be held on Zoom and is open to the public. Contact Rasmus Bjorn (bjorn@shh.mpg.de) to receive the link.
