Oct 30, Nov 6, 13, 20, 2019
9:30 am to 11:30 am
Silver and Sage Room in Old Main
More than seven million years of evolution led to the dominance of our species over the planet. A long but often scant trail of fossil skeletons tells the tale. But biological evolution is only one part of the equation as behavioral adaptations, or “culture”, both contributed to and accelerated the evolution of our human form. Today we live trapped in bodies that hold the residues of physical evolution and their limitations, under the intensely rapid transformations of modernity. In this four-part series, you will journey through millions of years of evolution with Dr. Watson to trace the development of our species from the hominin fossils to the modern legacy of lifestyle diseases.
