BTS - HOP - The Age of Man: Primates and Humans

Wednesday, October 04, 2017 - 6:00 PM

Running Time: 2 hours

 

Because the Morian Hall of Paleontology is too large to tour in one evening, we are bringing back this popular series that covers the hall section by section with James Washington--now expanded to 6 sessions. All sessions are Wednesday evenings at 6 p.m.

 

As the Ice Age began, the Primate order produced australopithecines, which is considered the halfway point on the journey from ape to human. In our final section of the Morian Hall of Paleontology, see how the human form evolved with the sophistication of our intellect. Compare early primates to Homo sapiens sapiens--us modern humans, noted to be very very smart. (Homo sapiens was first used to name early human species. Modern humans were christened Homo sapiens sapiens because our giant brains and intellect were far greater than our early human ancestors.) The last stop of the tour is the hunting grounds of the Clovis People, brave and clever folk who invented the mammoth-killing atlatl.
