The past year has seen remarkable discoveries in human evolution, from the unearthing of stone tools 700,000 years older than expected, to the discovery of Homo naledi deep in a South African cave, to the finding of a jaw bone arguably belonging to the Homo genus – 2.8 million years old! Join in discussion with scientists from Emory’s Anthropology Department about why these discoveries matter and examine an incredible cast collection of fossilized skulls of our human ancestors.
Park in the Peavine Visitor Lot (free) and enter Atwood through Dowman Drive. Please note this location is updated from that written in the printed event booklet.
