Where did we come from?: new insights into our oldest ancestors
Perhaps no subject fascinates us more than the mystery of our origins and evolution. Teams of scientists working throughout the world are recovering record numbers of fossils of our earliest ancestors, and these fossils are expanding and refining the picture we have of how we evolved. Dr. Carol Ward has been involved with the discovery and analysis of many of these fossils, and will present some of the more exciting ones. She will share how these fossils speak to scientists through their anatomy and biology, and how they reveal to us that our evolutionary history was more complex and nuanced than we have imagined.
