Looking for books on genetics, archaeology, and anthropology for a 14 year old interested in history and non-fiction.

I've been asked by one of our teachers to do some research on interesting books for one of our students. She's a reader, she loves history, non-fiction and biographies. She wants books about popular science, genetics, archaeology and anthropology that are more like non-fiction reading and less like studying.
Having said that, I'm going to bring in a largish stack of ethnographies from my college days, it'll be a start to the anthropology section.
Any recommendations for the rest?
