Chris Stringer: Human Evolution: Some Recent Discoveries and Their Implications
Time & Location
About the event
Professor Chris Stringer is the Research Leader in Human Origins at the London Natural History Museum. His early research was on the relationship of Neanderthals and early modern humans in Europe, but through his work on the ‘Recent African Origin’ model for modern human origins, collaborating with archaeologists, dating specialists, and geneticists, he works on reconstructing the evolution of modern humans globally.
He’s excavated at sites in Britain and abroad, directed the Ancient Human Occupation of Britain project from 2001 to 2013, and is currently co-directing the Pathways to Ancient Britain project. He has published over 250 scientific papers and his recent books include The Complete World of Human Evolution (2011, with Peter Andrews), The Origin of Our Species (2011), and Britain: One Million Years of the Human Story (2014, with Rob Dinnis), and Our Human Story (2018, with Louise Humphrey).
