Chris Stringer March

This year out speaker for the Brodie Lecture will be Professor Chris Sringer, Research Leader in Human Origins. Chris' early research was on the relationship of Neanderthals and early modern humans in Europe. He has excavated at sites in Britain and abroad, directed the Ancient Human Occupation of Britain project from 2001 to 2013, and is now the co-director of the follow-up Pathways to Ancient Britain project.

Those projects led to the successful Britain: One Million Years of the Human Story exhibition at the Natural History Museum in 2014. As well as many scientific papers, Chris has written a number of books, most recently The Origin of Our Species (2012, published in the USA as Lone Survivors: how we came to be the only humans on Earth), and Britain: one million years of the human story (2014, with Rob Dinnis).
