The 2014 conference in Bern led to a new pan-disciplinary synthesis, defining a novel understanding of early human interactions across Asia and Oceania. In 2017, the Bern contributions appeared in a special issue of Man In India, Vol. 97, issue 1, entitled ‘Ethnolinguistic Phylogeography and Prehistory in Asia and Beyond’.

The genetic, linguistic and archaeological syntheses contained in this issue of Man In India shed new light on ethnolinguistic prehistory and on the movements of human populations, both out of Africa, and across Eurasia and into the New World from the vantage points of linguistics, population genetics, archaeobotany, archaeology and anthropology.
