- Lecturers: Prof Chris Stringer
Chris Stringer will guide you through the fierce debates about the origins of humanity and what it means to be human. He sets out to answer some of the big questions in the debates about our evolution: how can we recognise our physical and behavioural origins from the fossil and archaeological record? Do we represent a newly-evolved species? How are we related to ancient relatives such as the 'Hobbit' of the island of Flores, the Neanderthals, and the newly-recognised Denisovans?
He will also look at the factors that could have led to the evolution of modern humans, and those that might lie behind the disappearance of species like the Neanderthals.
