Check out Enigma of Reason (I came upon a lot of this literature through the study of the cognition of religion).
Complex Patterns of Admixture across the Indonesian Archipelago. Someone who knows archaeology should read this….
The genetic history of Ice Age Europe. This was published last year. But it should be re-read. Closely.
