Recently named a Financial Times 'Master of Science', Professor Chris Stringer has been researching the relationship between Neanderthals and Homo sapiens for his entire career at the Museum.

There have been many exciting recent discoveries, particularly in the field of ancient DNA, that help us better understand our ancestors and the reasons for the extinction of certain species. 

Chris will talk about the intriguing human past of Britain and about how recent studies from across the globe are not only shedding light on our past, but are also shaping our future. 

Following the talk you will have a chance to ask Chris questions and take part in a book signing.
