At the birth of modern Western science, there were deep-rooted prejudices around race and gender that went on to influence theories and research into human difference.

Science journalist Angela Saini explores the devastating history of these ideas, and the legacies they have left in modern-day biology and medicine.

In the search for a more accurate way of understanding human variation, she argues that more needs to be done to interrogate the way humans are classified.
