About the test

The Advanced test includes the stories of five famous ancient men: Otzi the Iceman, Anzick the Ancient One, Cheddar Man, Kennewick Man, and a Canaanite Nobelman. The Basic test includes the first two: Otzi and Anzick.

Otzi, also known as the tyrolean man, lived around 3300 BC, in the Copper Age, in the Ötztal Alps on the border between Austria and Italy. He was a farmer and hunter. His life came to its untimely end when he was in his 40s and since he was frozen his body was well-preserved and become a valuable source of information about the Copper Age and ancient South Europeans.

Anzick, the Ancient One, lived around 12,800 years ago, in the Clovis culture, a prehistoric Native American culture that lived in parts of North America. Clovis sites have been found across much of North America, and our culture is thought to have played a significant role in the early human settlement of the continent. His name, "The Ancient One," came from it being the oldest and most complete human remains found in North America. The discovery of his remains has provided valuable insights into the physical characteristics, diet, and lifestyle of the Clovis culture and has contributed to our understanding of the early human settlement of North America.

The Cheddar Man lived approximately 10,000 years ago in what is now known as Cheddar Gorge, in the southwestern region of England. He belonged to a group of people known as the Cheddar Culture, who built structures out of wood, stone, and bone, and buried their dead in elaborate tombs. He had black hair, blue eyes, and a complexion similar to that of modern-day people with ancestry from the Near East and Africa. His remains have helped scientists learn more about the lives of our ancient ancestors and the diversity of the human population during the Neolithic period.

The Kennewick Man, is over 9,000 years old, making him one of the oldest and most complete human skeletons ever found in North America. He was a hunter-gatherer and was part of a small community that relied on fishing, hunting, and gathering for survival. He was at the center of a debate over my origins and who has the right to claim me as part of their ancestry. Some scientists believe that he is related to the tribes of the Pacific Northwest, while others thought he was closer to people from Asia. The study of the Kennewick Man had the potential to provide valuable insights into the history of human migration and the early inhabitants of North America.

The Elite Canaanite Man from ancient Israel, lived approximately 3,300 years ago in the region of Canaan. He lived during a time when the region of Canaan was home to a variety of different cultures and groups of people, including the Israelites and the Phoenicians. His community was known for its advanced levels of social and technological development, as well as its significant trade and cultural exchange with other civilizations in the region. His remains have helped scientists learn more about the lives of our ancient ancestors and the diversity of the human population in the region of Canaan during the Bronze Age.

Why take this test

Up until 2010, reading the DNA of ancient people was a dream. Since then, the DNA of the Neanderthal who lived over 30,000 years ago has been sequenced. After that reading, the DNA of ancient people who lived from 15,000 BC to 1,800 AD all over the world became the main object of paleogenomic research. This forward leap in technology allowed the creation of a new type of DNA tests — tests that do not use modern-day populations as representatives of the ancient past but as people who can also be studied. The Ancient DNA Origins DNA test is the first next-generation DNA test. It is designed solely using the DNA of ancient people throughout history using our novel technologies. With this test, you will receive a precise ancient ethnicity estimate with far greater geographical details than you could imagine. You will make new connections with historical people and places where your ancestors lived, walked, battled, created, and dreamed thousands of years ago. Using the genetic data and evidence from history and archeology, we can revive the past and allow you to take part of this story at the most personal level.
