A Journey Through Pre-History From Caves to Stone Circles
18.30 - 20.00 GMT
Lecture 1: Wednesday 16 November
From Lucy to Lascaux: the rise of Homo sapiens
In this lecture we will follow the rise of our species along its evolutionary tree, with a special eye towards the archaeological record that was left behind by the different hominid species and what it can tells us about their cognitive abilities.
Lecture 2: Wednesday 23 November
From Shell Middens to Stonehenge: monumentalizing skyscapes
This lecture follows on from the previous one by focusing on the last seven thousand years of the Stone Age, particularly looking at how structures of a monumental nature started to be built and encoded elements of a cosmological nature.
This fundraiser only costs £15 for students and graduates only.
All proceeds go to the Alumni.
