The Longest Walk | World Science Festival Brisbane

South Brisbane, Brisbane Area

23 March 2018 - 

Indicative Rate * AU$10 to AU$35

Journey through 300 millennia of human history to reveal the secrets of our survival.

Since our ancestors split from their ape cousins, many Hominin species have roamed the Earth. Today, only Homo sapiens remain. Why did we survive and thrive to become the planet’s most dominant species? Why did we prevail?

Palaeontologist and former presenter of ABC TV’s Catalyst Paul Willis will lead a discussion on how recent scientific technology has added to the wealth of archaeological data and tease out the truths behind more than 300,000 years of human survival.
