Speaker information

Professor Fred Spoor, UCL Cell and Developmental Biology

Human evolution has traditionally been seen as a linear succession of ancestors from the primitive Australopithecus species to our own, Homo sapiens. This lecture reviews evidence that multiple species coexisted throughout our evolutionary past, demonstrating that the present, with just a sole human species, is an exception rather than the norm.
