Deep caves, adorned with representations of long extinct animals and strewn with the ashy remains of ancient hearths and stone tools, are portals to knowledge of our selves.
As more age-old dwellings and remains of our ancient inhabitants are discovered, the story of what it means to be human becomes more intriguing and complex. Author and cultural anthropologist Llyn De Danaan explores our origins and how they help us define what it means to be human, and examines up-to-date finds that have, in recent times, altered our understanding of our past. Further, what will it mean to be human in the future as new technologies challenge our own intelligence and hard-won skills? Wonder together what the future holds.
