In May, a research team announced the exciting results of their study of the largest fossil human footprint site in Africa: Engare Sero, Tanzania. With nearly 400 footprints, these fossilized steps have helped researchers trace a better understanding of life and behavioral practices for the early modern humans who lived there between 6,000 and 19,000 years ago. 

After a presentation by William E.H. Harcourt-Smith (Associate Professor of Anthropology at Lehman College, CUNY), two other key research team members — Cynthia Liutkus-Pierce (Professor and Director of the Environmental Science Program, Appalachian State University) and Kevin Hatala (Assistant Professor of Biology, Chatham University) — will join the conversation.

Moderator: Briana Pobiner, paleoanthropologist and educator at Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History.

This program will be presented as a Zoom video webinar. A link will be emailed to all registrants. 
This program is offered as part of the ongoing HOT (Human Origins Today) Topics series.
