The Secret Science Club presents paleoanthropologist, fossil hunter, and human evolution expert William Harcourt-Smith
As a species, Homo sapiens is a mere 250,000 years old (give or take). What were our ancestors and extinct relatives like? How did we humans evolve into our amazing selves?
Just returned from Kenya and the northern Sudan, paleoanthropologist William Harcourt-Smith of the American Museum of Natural History and Lehman College lectures on recently discovered hominid and primate species, new research about human evolution and our family tree, and his own expeditions to a 20-million-year-old fossil site. Dig it!
