Event Description

The discovery of a 4.5 million year old fossil in Ethiopia and its detailed analysis sheds significant light on the question of when our early ancestors began to walk on two legs.  C. Owen Lovejoy, professor of Anthropology at Kent State University discusses that question and others in his lecture, "A New Kind of Ancestry: New Light on the Earliest Origins of the Human Clade."  In it he explores why humans adopted this peculiar form of locomotion.  He will discuss whether our last common ancestor with chimpanzees also walked upright or 'knuckle-walked' as chimpanzees do.
