Today we start a new segment with Dr. Jennifer Raff. We explore the use of ancient DNA in archaeology and how our understanding of such has changed over the years. We also look at the most recent misuse of the Olmec culture as evidence of a pre-columbic African presence in the Americas, and what DNA tells us about that.
