Encore Lunch with Professor John Hawks: the Discovery in the Rising Star Caves Thu, Jun 7, 2018 — 11:45AM to 1:00PM
In 2013, a team of underground cave explorers found fossil remains of an unknown human relative in the Dinaledi Chamber, deep within the Rising Star cave system. These fossil bones belong to a previously undiscovered species, now named Homo naledi.Geological evidence shows that they lived at the same time our own species was evolving in Africa. Join John Hawks for lunch to discuss his recent return to the cave and the new clues discovered there.
Professor John Hawks is an internationally recognized expert on human evolution and genetics. He is a core member of the team that discovered the new species Homo naledi, from the Rising Star cave of South Africa.
Event price is $19 per person and includes lunch. Guests are welcome!
