The History of the Human Face

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:25 pm on 22 February 2017

The human face may not be as modern as we think. In fact, our guest thinks that modern humans have kept a lot of primitive features from our distant ancestors. And says Neanderthals were actually more evolved in their own direction than modern humans. Professor Jean-Jacques Hublin, is the Director of the Department of Human Evolution, at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Germany.
