It is now known that symbolic culture began emerging in Africa over 100,000 years ago, in a social revolution whose echoes can still be heard in myths and rituals around the world. These talks include the latest findings from genetics, evolutionary biology, primatology, cave painting research and archaeology. There are good local pubs and there is always time for discussion and socialising.
