    [music]
  • 0:09 - 0:14
    [clapping]
  • 0:15 - 0:20
    I want you to think about the image that you see when I say one word:
  • 0:20 - 0:21
    migrant
  • 0:23 - 0:25
    You may have pictured a crowded boat in rough waters
  • 0:25 - 0:28
    people clinging to the top of a frieght train
  • 0:28 - 0:30
    or crossing a desert wearing worn out shoes
  • 0:30 - 0:36
    this is what we see in the news cycle 24 hours, day after day, story after story
  • 0:36 - 0:41
    people who are desperate, fleeing wars, fleeing climate change, fleeing poverty
  • 0:41 - 0:42
    but in reality
  • 0:42 - 0:45
    most people move for more common reasons
  • 0:45 - 0:47
    to get a good education, to find a job...
  • 0:48 - 0:51
    to find family members,
    or to fall in love
  • 0:51 - 0:52
    and this is nothing new
  • 0:53 - 0:56
    archeologists, like me, have been studying migration
  • 0:57 - 1:01
    and finding that people for hundreds
    and even thousands of years have been moving around the globe.
  • 1:01 - 1:07
    from Europe's earliest farmers, to Vikings,
    to pirates, Roman gladiators, and even neanderthal cavemen.
  • 1:08 - 1:10
    and people like you and me.
  • 1:10 - 1:13
    mobility is one of the things that makes us human
  • 1:13 - 1:14
    people move
  • 1:15 - 1:18
    and we know this because of something you brought with you here tonight
  • 1:18 - 1:23
    you carry it with you to many places;
    to work, to the gym, to bed, and even in the shower
  • 1:24 - 1:25
    it's not your cellphone
  • 1:25 - 1:28
    and its not in your purse or your pockets; it's you
  • 1:28 - 1:36
    it's your body, and your bones - all 206 of them - I brought mine;
    and in case for some reason you didn't bring yours along, we do have an extra one here
  • 1:36 - 1:40
    because your bones will tell the story of your life - even a single tooth
  • 1:41 - 1:43
    and we know that theeth tell us many things
  • 1:43 - 1:45
    for your dentist, for example,
  • 1:45 - 1:50
    he or she can see if you floss or if, like me, you really like candy and you might end up with some cavitites -
  • 1:50 - 1:54
    and if my dentist is here tonight: yes I will see you Monday, and I've been very good [chuckle]
  • 1:54 - 1:57
    but your teeth also tell you something about migration
