Katerina Harvati | Neanderthals in the mirror

13 February, 2018

Katerina Harvati, Professor of Paleoanthropology at the University of Tübingen presented recent breakthroughs in the study of the fossil record, including virtual anthropology methods, ancient DNA and other approaches, that have shed light on Neanderthal paleobiology and way of life, on the timing and route of dispersal of modern humans into Europe, and on the potential for biological and cultural exchange among the two.

Prof. Havati’s talk in the Athens Science Festival was supported by the Goethe Institute.
