Workshop Summary

Darwin’s theory suggested that people and apes had descended from a common ancestor. A revolutionary concept at the time, this theory of evolution questioned humanity’s place in the universe - but do we know the full story?

Join us on a human odyssey as we explore the themes of common ancestry, diversity and natural selection. This quantitative workshop uses techniques developed in palaeoanthropology to investigate how our ancestors have changed over the last four million years of evolution.
