Recent aDNA analysis has demonstrated that the centuries surrounding
the arrival of the Beaker Complex in Britain witnessed a massive
turnover in the genetic make-up of the population. Here we consider the
archaeological implications of this finding, and propose two hypotheses -
Beaker Colonisation and Steppe Drift - that might help us understand the
underlying social processes, and propose directions for future research.
