The next Liverpol SciBar is entitled Prehistoric Autopsy so head along but make sure you have eaten first.

Following the BBC Two series Prehistoric Autopsy, Dr Isabelle De Groote, gives an insight into three of the most iconic members of our prehistoric family: A Neanderthal, a Homo erectus and an Australopithecus afarensis. The talk will explore what they looked like, how they lived, how they compare with us today and how we ended up being the only human species left.

Isabelle, a paleoanthropologist, has worked at the Natural History Museum in London and is now based at Liverpool John Moores University. She was an advisor on the series.

See http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p00xfdmt for information on the series.

Come along on Tuesday 4th December at 7:30pm to the Ship and Mitre and find out more.  

As always the audience will be welcome to give their own opinions and ask questions.  Remember there's no such thing as a silly question at SciBar!
