Red Ochre And The Emergence Of Homo Sapiens
Tuesday, November 12, 2019 - 18:45
Ian Watts, a founding member of the Radical Anthropology Group, recounts his experiences as an archaeologist in Africa, exploring how modern Homo sapiens evolved. Ian is the world's leading specialist in the ochre record of human evolution, and was part of a team who, while excavating Blombos Cave in 2002, discovered the world's earliest art. He is currently working intensively to sort out the sequences in Border Cave, which features a remarkably continuous stratigraphic record of human occupation spanning about 200 ka.
