Event description

Description

Meet Homo naledi - a newly discovered species of extinct hominin from the Rising Star cave system in the Cradle of Humankind, South Africa. What can the curvature of a finger bone tell us about this mysterious new ancestor, and what can this landmark discovery tell us about human evolution?





This event is part of our 'Ri Patrons present' series. With the support of the Ri Patron community, we are pleased to present this monthly series of fascinating events bringing together science and society. Following the event, Ri Patrons have the opportunity to meet the speakers and learn more about their research.

Free tickets are available to Ri Patrons and discounted tickets are available to Members of the Ri. Find out more about how to join our community.

The doors will open at approximately 6.30pm, with a prompt start at 7.00pm. There will be time for questions after the talk.

Latecomers will be admitted to the gallery.
