28 May - The origin of modern humans, with:

  • Chris Stringer, Research Leader in Human Origins, Natural History Museum
  • Bruce Bradley, Professor of Experimental Archaeology, University of Exeter

Understanding the evolution of modern humans is one of science's most intriguing projects. And recently, the picture it gives has changed dramatically. The unexpected discovery of a new species of early human plus genetic tests on our other ancient ancestors has dramatically changed the way we view the ascent of humans. Moreover, we are gaining better understanding of their brains and mental abilities from a surprising source - the tools they made.
