Why Were Early Humans Successful and Other Hominins Not?

Meet us Thursday, May 12 at 6:30pm at Aeronaut Brewing Company, 14 Tyler St, Somerville

Christian Tryon is a Paleolithic archaeologist in the Department of Anthropology at Harvard University. He is interested in the behavioral evolution of Homo sapiens and the role that archaeology can play in understanding the evolutionary success of our species. His primary research area is eastern Africa, where he has directed a number of field projects in Kenya since 2001. Dr. Tryon’s current research focuses on the co-variation of ancient environments and human behavior. He is particularly interested in the analysis of stone tools and what they tell us about human behavior and the environment, as well as modern human dispersals across and out of Africa.
