Lecture

Kindred: Neanderthal Life, Love, Death and Art

Joint Leicestershire Fieldworkers lecture
Dr Rebecca Wragg Sykes

The Neanderthals occupy a singularly seminal place within human origins, the first hominin to be discovered, the closest to us in evolutionary terms, and with the richest array of evidence to understand their lives. This lecture will explore how understanding of Neanderthals has evolved over more than 160 years

Joint meeting of Leicestershire Fieldworkers, Leicestershire Archaeological and Historical Society and the Prehistoric Society.
