Dear Netters:

I have just obtained some bees (mostly chitin and little muscle tissue) from a 
archeological site. They are around 800 years old and I wish to extract the 
DNA, if any, that may be there. I have done RAPDs on bees and mites but I don't
know how to extract this old DNA.

Suggestions would be helpful.  Thanks in advance.
