Museum: Archaeology Now
Investigating the lives of our earliest ancestors - Africa 3.5 - 1.5 million years ago. Dr Hannah O'Regan from the Department of Archaeology will introduce our early forbears - Australopithecus and early Homo, and their lives in Africa between 3.5 - 1.5 million years ago. Her talk, based on recent research, will include questions of where and how they lived, and the dangers they faced in day-to-day life, from sabre-toothed cats and other large carnivores. Following the talk, Hannah will be available with casts of some of our ancestors (and an extinct cat or two), for a handling session at the museum. Dr Hannah O'Regan, Department of Archaeology, The University of Nottingham. Talks take place at 1pm in the Djanogly Theatre. Please book your place in advance with our Box Office on 0115 846 7777.
