The history of the formation of the genetic population of the Czech lands in the early Middle Ages

Project: The history of the formation of the genetic population of the Czech lands in the early Middle Ages, derived from the inverse method from the current composition and statistical frequence of haplogrups and their parts represented in the current population of the Czech Republic

introduction: 

The Early Middle Age or Early Medieval Period, sometimes referred to as the Dark Ages, is typically regarded as lasting from the 5th or 6th century to the 10th century CE. They marked the start of the Middle Ages of European history. As such, it overlaps with Late Antiquity following the decline of the Western Roman Empire and precedes the High Middle Ages

Population decline, relocations to the countryside, invasion, and migration began in Late Antiquity and continued in the Early Middle Ages. The large-scale movements of the Migration Period, including various Germanic peoples, formed new kingdoms in what remained of the Western Roman Empire. 

short anotation: 

 

The history of the formation of the genetic population of the Czech lands in the early Middle Ages, derived from the inverse method from the current composition and statistical frequence of haplogrups and their parts represented in the current population of the Czech Republic is a large-scale research project that investigates the historical roots of genetic extension in early medieval world. It focuses on the creation of a global human population genetic fond in Czech lands in Early medieval Period. The core of the project are studies of history, archaeology, studies archaeological cultures and archeogenetic from the middle Europa. 

The project aims to be innovative, not only in its approach and method, but also in its output. It will not only result in a number of studies, but will also develop tools for the study of knowledge societies in general, as well as a handbook on knowledge societies that can be used by students and eventual also senior academics alike.

This period is characterized by the high mobility of ethnicity and individual tribes. Therefore, it is also important to map the routes that people have were moving to, because the human genes have just that way traveled on these routes from a region to region.
