Stepping on the Stage of History: Modern Humans in the Upper Palaeolithic

Monday 20 April 2020, 7.00PM to 9.00pm

Four hundred centuries ago, a new human species appeared in Europe, Homo sapiens. Upon their arrival, our ancestors found a cold, hostile environment populated by large, fearsome animals and by our close cousins, Neanderthals, better adapted to such a world than we were. The course will explore how we faced the adversities of the late Ice Age and how much the archaeological record preserves the earliest traces of our organisational, social and symbolic behaviour.
