Talkaoke: Ancient DNA

This summer take a seat at the Talkaoke table – the pop-up science talk show where anyone can join the conversation. Plus meet our friendly scientists and find out about how they make the science happen.

Join the conversation

Free, outdoors, drop-in!

Join us in front of the Crick building, next to St Pancras station

Our Meet a Scientist sessions are intended to promote informal conversations between Crick scientists and visitors. These sessions are most suitable for individuals and small groups. Age guidance 8+.

What can looking at DNA from skeletons of people who lived thousands of years ago tell us about our present? Join scientists from the Crick’s Ancient Genomics laboratory around the Talkaoke table – the pop up science talk show where anyone can join the conversation – to explore this rapidly developing field of research. 

Our popular Meet a Scientist sessions will also be running during this event. Bring your curiosity, have a chat and find out about life in the lab.
