Human evolution – the story of us
The Rock Room |
1st Floor Corridor, South Wing
Wilkins Building | Gower Street | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom
Humans and chimpanzees last shared a common ancestor approximately 6.5 million years ago. Numerous species of hominins (human ancestors) have existed since then, but Homo sapiens (us) are the only species to still survive. ‘Human Evolution – the story of us’ gives you the chance to come face to face with those ancestors.
Meet ‘Lucy’, the famous Australopithecus afarensis, that roamed Eastern Africa approximately 3 million years ago and Australopithecus boisei with their massive jaws and teeth! Not forgetting the Neanderthals - did you know that the average European shares 1-4% of their DNA with a Neanderthal?
Featuring rarely displayed objects from UCL's Bio-Anthropology Collection, this exhibition will also feature tools that our ancestors would have used in their daily quest for survival. UCL scientists will be on hand during the event to discuss the objects with visitors.
