Interview with Johannes Krause about his book A Short History of Humanity. Discusses insights on human evolution from his work with ancient DNA: the successive waves of migration and the inter-relationships between human groups; light skin as an adaptation to a vegetarian farming diet; patriarchy and inequality emerging with the transition to farming; warfare emerging with the metal age; and lactase persistence allowing farmers to have more children.
