Neanderthals inhabited our planet alongside Homo sapiens until their disappearance around 40,000 years ago.

Did they share anything else with us aside from our planet? How did they live? And what led to them vanishing from the fossil record?

Join us as we talk human evolution with Museum researcher Chris Stringer. 

The talks are free but space is limited, so please arrive early.
