In this mini recap episode I host Egyptologist Dr. Juan Carlos Moreno García on a very fascinating and sometimes controversial topic and that is ancient Egyptian identity, ethnicity and ancient DNA.

We talk about when foreigners become Egyptians, what ancient DNA tells us and more importantly how we should view and treat studies related to ancient DNA with caution in order to not misrepresent or misconstrue findings to encompass entire periods of history and populations.

We also explore a controversial topic and that is are the modern Egyptians direct representations of ancient Egyptians, or has that continuity been interrupted and changed by waves of migrations, inversions and conquests?
