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, 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 stand-ins for the ancient tribes but rather go right to the source and study these ancient peoples themselves.

Ancient DNA Origins represents the next-generation of DNA tests.

With our tests, you will receive the ancient ethnicity estimate of your ancestors with far greater geographical, historical, and archeological detail than you could imagine. You will connect 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 revive the past and allow you to take part in this journey.
