David Frayer lecture on Neandertals and Us
Thursday, May 20, 2010 - 8:00pm to Thursday, May 20, 2010 - 9:30pm

WHAT: Oral presentation by Dr. David Frayer, University of Kansas. Sigma Xi Distinguished Lecturer. Neandertals and Us: Since their discovery in 1856, Neandertals have generally been considered a different species or offshoots from the subsequent European line with little or no contribution to the people who followed them. Yet, a variety of morphological and metric traits link Neandertals with their European successors. Along with new information from Neandertal biology and culture, it is becoming increasingly difficult to eliminate them from a relationship to the Cro-Magnons who followed them in Europe.

WHEN: Thursday, May 20, 8 to 9:30 p.m.
WHERE: 327-329 Smith Union

Sponsored by Sigma Xi and Department of Anthropology.
