Anthropological Genetic History: The Vandals Connection to New Mexican Families (Haplogroup I)

ID : 82230   
« back to classes page
The Vandals were an East Germanic Tribe that entered the late Roman Empire during the fifth century. The Vandals were divided in two tribal groups, the Silingi and the Hasdingi. In 400 or 401, possibly because of attacks by the Huns, the Vandals, under king Godigisel, along with their allies (the Sarmatian Alans and Germanic Suebians) moved westwards into Roman territory. The connection between certain New Mexican families and the Vandals will be explored. We will watch a short film that will trace the history of this group. We will also discuss which families show the markers that are most identified with this ancient civilization.
