CARTA: Behaviorally Modern Humans: The Origin of Us – Chris Stringer: Fossil Record of Anatomically Modern Humans

8/2/2013; 18 minutes

Evidence points strongly to Africa as the major center for the genetic, physical and behavioral origins of both ancient and modern humans. In this talk, Chris Stringer (Natural History Museum, London) reviews recent genetic and paleontological research that suggests more complex scenarios for our origins than had been considered previously. This includes the likelihood of interbreeding between archaic and modern humans, both within and outside of Africa. (#25393)
