Ask a Scientist: Fun Nerdy Lectures and Q&A | SF
Who’s your (ancient) daddy? Did he walk upright? Could he control fire? Did he have a brow ridge that wouldn’t quit?! Then maybe he was a Homo of the erectus — not so sapient — type. Many new Homo erectus specimens have been added to the global repository in the past decades, and many new interpretations have followed. It is more than most can easily digest.
Come join professor Henry Gilbert, Assoc. Professor of Anthropology, CSU East Bay, discoverer of the Daka Homo erectus cranium, to have the Pleistocene evidence of your ancestors’ evolutionary history explained.
Free, but an RSVP is requested.
