June talk tonight!

Poster for Prof Matthew Bennett

Apologies for the late notice; we've had a few gremlins in the works. Normal service will be resumed next month. Please note, all upcoming events are listed on the calendar with full details and a copy of each poster. We try to keep a few months ahead so you can always find out about any upcoming talks by visiting the website.

The  June talk tonight will be given by Prof. Matthew Bennett of Bournemouth University.

Matthew is a Quaternary Sedimentologist and Geomorphologist – someone who studies the landforms and sediments of the last 2 million years, essentially those of the last Ice Age. More recently, he has developed an interest in human evolution and ichnology – the study of trace fossils such as human and animal footprints. He is best known for his recent fieldwork in Kenya at the second oldest footprint site in the world, where fossil prints were attributed to Homo erectus. This research was published in Science, one of the world’s top-rated journals. He also has an interesting research sideline as the world’s expert in building the perfect sandcastle and Bournemouth University’s location on the stunning south coast of England is the perfect place to practice this ‘art’. He has also contributed to television programmes such as Coast (BBC, 2007) and Fossil Detectives (BBC, 2008).

Usual time, usual place.
