Environmental Factors in the Chronology of Human Evolution and Dispersal (EFCHED)
An advance invitation to a special event in Quaternary Science and Human Evolution
The science finale of the Natural Environment Research Council funded EFCHED programme will be hosted as a one day conference by the British Museum on Friday the 10th of November. QRA members will remember the venue from the very successful discussion meeting held there in 2005.
Admission, which is free to QRA members, will be by ticket only and includes abstracts, lunch and a reception. On-line registration will begin in October by following the link to the NERC website (www.nerc.ac.uk/funding/thematics/efched/).
For more details contact Dr. Gilbert Marshall ([log in to unmask]) at the Centre for Quaternary Research, Royal Holloway, University of London. Tickets will be issued on a first come first served basis. A full programme of speakers and titles will be posted on the NERC website (www.nerc.ac.uk/funding/thematics/efched/) and on this site at a later date.
EFCHED is a thematic programme made up of eleven projects, bringing together researchers from the UK and abroad. By combining Palaeoanthropology, Archaeology and Palaeoecology, the programme has investigated the intricate relationship between changing climates and evolving humans.
On Saturday the 11th of November the finale will be communicating the achievements of EFCHED to the wider public in collaboration with the Education Department of the British Museum.
