    Origins of the ancient Veneti (“Venets”) are unknown
  • Previous Work by WPI
    122 valid DNA samples in Venice
    Created map of theories
    Obtained data from Genographic

  • Previous Study
    too much genetic variability from gene flow
    inconclusive results
  • Our Work
    1. Determination of locations for
    new genetic research
    2. Plan of DNA collection
    3. Organization of research for
    future studies
  • Determining Significant Locations
    evidence of the Venets throughout Europe
    links to their ancient migration
  • Geographical Distribution of Evidence
    archaeology example: burial urns
  • Geographical Distribution of Evidence
    mythology example: deity worship
  • Geographical Distribution of Evidence
    other: scholars, traditions, documents, other finds
  • Target Locations
