The oldest family tree in the world has been created

A team of researchers created the world's oldest family tree by analyzing the DNA of remains found in a tomb that is 5,700 years old.

According to The Guardian, scientists have studied bones and teeth 35 people buried in one tomb. DNA analysis revealed the age, gender and family ties of the deceased. In addition, the analysis showed that people buried in a common grave belonged to five generations of the same family, while the connection between generations was not interrupted.

This is a prehistoric group of people that lived about 3700 – 3600 years BC. They are known to be the first known British farmers.

Most of those found in the tomb were descended from four women who had children from one man. People were buried in different parts of the tomb according to the type of woman they came from.
