    Ancestral Journeys: The Peopling of Europe from the First Venturers to the Vikings

    My book can now be pre-ordered from Amazon UK (£16.96) and Amazon US ($22.60). It is due to come out on 9 September 2013 under the title Ancestral Journeys: The Peopling of Europe from the First Venturers to the Vikings (Thames & Hudson).

    The print version has been considerably revised and updated from the last version online (June 2012) and also has specially redrawn maps and a new selection of illustrations. It includes three haplogroup maps produced by Richard Rocca, which are a great improvement on the ones I previously had.

    The two obvious omissions are Jews and Romani, who certainly rate chapters of their own, but instead are only briefly mentioned. They lost out to the Bulgars and Magyars when it came to deciding what new material could be added without going over the text limit.

    Jean, any consideration of offering it in an electronic format? Currently I am living most of the time in Malaysia, and most of my library is in Pittsburgh, PA, USA. I had decided I don't want to haul much of it over here, only to do the reverse in a couple of years or so.

    It's great when I can put something on my Nook. But I also have a Kindle app for my laptop.
    Besides British-German-Catalan, ancestry includes smaller amounts of French, Irish, Swiss, Choctaw & another NA tribe, possibly Catawba. Avatar picture is: my father, his father, & his father's father; baby is my eldest brother.

    I have urged Thames and Hudson to create a digital version. They said they would consider it, but I have heard nothing further. I also do not know yet if there will be editions in languages other than English. That depends on other publishers taking up the option to translate.

    I can handle English okay. I only have to do minimal translation of difficult words, such as aluminium = aluminum.

    I wasn't thinking of you needing a translation - just thinking ahead for the next questions. I suppose the US edition will be in US spelling.

    I hope you know I was pulling your leg.

    We Americans do have our peculiarities -- I suppose it's one of our privileges as a former British colony. We even have a different alphabet. Our last letter is "zee".

    EDIT: My daughter treasures her copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, picked up while she was in London. (I still can't figure out why they thought Americans had to have it be "Sorcerer's Stone".)

    2nd EDIT: And congratulations on your book. I enjoyed reading its internet precursor, and look forward to the print version (or hopefully, electronic).
