Dig into 2015! Several different species of humans (hominins) have existed over the last few million years. They’re gone now. All that’s left is good-old Homo sapiens. But don’t feel too lonely. At the next Secret Science Club, Shara Bailey introduces our long-lost cousins—the Neandertals, Homo floresiensis (the “Hobbit”), Australopithecus, and more.
A physical anthropologist at NYU and the Center for the Study of Human Origins, Shara Bailey delves into the the history of human evolution. She asks:
—What hominin species existed before modern humans—or even co-existed with us?
—How did our human ancestors change as they evolved? How are we different, and where were the earliest Homo sapiens found?
—What can 3-D imaging, confocal microscopy, computer modeling, and genetic analysis of bones and teeth tell us about the lives, childhoods, and diets of our ancient ancestors?
Before & After
—Sip our early-modern cocktail, the Paleo Riot
—Bone up! Stick around for the taxonomically challenged Q&A
