The ancestors of people from across Europe and Asia may have spoken a common language about 15,000 years ago, new research suggests.

The word list, detailed today (May 6) in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, could help researchers retrace the history of ancient migrations and contacts between prehistoric cultures.
