This hands-on workshop explores the evolutionary relationships between present day Homo sapiens and ancient humans, applying analytical techniques used by Museum scientists.
Students will observe and measure museum-quality replicas of fossil skulls. Their challenge will be to work together and use their evidence to work out how different species of humans are related.
Human evolution is a rapidly changing and controversial field of research and students will also consider the limitations and reliability of data collected from rare and fragile fossils.
Duration: 75 minutes
Capacity: 30 students
