Professor Chris Stringer

Human evolution: Neanderthals and ancient pathways from Africa to Britain

Professor Chris Stringer of the Natural History Museum of London addresses the big questions: how can we define modern humans and how can we recognise our beginnings in the fossil and archaeological record? How can we accurately date fossils, including ones beyond the range of radiocarbon dating? What do the genetic data really tell us? Were our origins solely in Africa? Are modern humans a distinct species from ancient people such as the Neanderthals and Denisovans, or are we much more like them than previously believed? What contact did our ancestors have with them? When did humans first inhabit Britain?

The Allan Wilson Centre for Molecular Ecology and Evolution has invited Professor Stringer to New Zealand to give a series of public talks, with support from the Royal Society of New Zealand.
