Speaker information

Dr Matt Pope, UCL Institute of Archaeology

The Neanderthals represent an incredibly successful and distinctive experiment in being human, they evolved as a separate human lineage over half a million years before apparently disappearing around 40,000 years ago. During this period they occupied large parts of Europe and Western Asia, developed sophisticated tools, mastered fire and engaged in the hunting of large mammals across a variety of different environments. La Cotte de St Brelade, on the Channel Island of Jersey, is one of the best sites in the world for understanding Neanderthals and their achievement. In this lecture Dr Matt Pope will report on new work being carried out on this mega-site and will consider the evolution and ultimate fate of our closest evolutionary relative
