Interview with Elizabeth Jones about her book Ancient DNA: The Making of a Celebrity Science. Discusses the excitement in paleogenetics in the 1990s on the back of strong public interest caused by Michael Crichton’s 1990 novel Jurassic Park, its subsequent retrenchment as a field, and the prompt renaissance in the late 2000’s under the leadership of Svante Pääbo and Eske Willerslev.
