No they haven't, and I don't think they are even going to try. I wrote to Wessex Archaeology a year or so ago about the Amesbury Archer. I was told they think the bones are too old to test for dna, so there are no plans to try.

It's a shame really.

Maybe in a few years when the technology improves they'll revisit some of these old finds and test them.
