About this event


For the last 90 years the study of human origins has been concentrated in Southern and East Africa.  The earliest protohumans first appeared here five million years ago, and it is from here that our own genus, genus Homo, is said to have originated some two million or more years ago.  Excavations near Johannesburg, and in Kenya, Tanzania and Ethiopia have produced a multiplicity of species, which much later migrated to Eurasia and eventually resulted in the evolution of our own species, Homo sapiens.  However, the newest scientific evidence (2013), most unexpectedly from the region of the Black Sea, has thrown almost a century of evolutionary research into total confusion.  This is the story that is now emerging!
