Talk: Volcanic Winter and Modern Human Evolution in Africa by Prof. Stanley H. Ambrose, University of Illinois

About
The disastrous beginning of the last Ice Age, 74 thousand years ago, may have stimulated anatomically modern humans in Africa to cooperate for survival. This new social security system, combined with new technologies, may have facilitated expansion of behaviorally modern humans out of Africa sixty thousand years ago, and replacement of Neanderthals and other archaic human species. Stanley Ambrose will discuss the geological, climatic, archaeological, genetic, physiological and fossil evidence for behaviors that contributed to the competitive advantage of modern African humans and the demise of Neanderthals.
