Percussive Technology in Human Evolution

An international conference on Percussive Technology in Human Evolution will be held at the Institute in September 2014 for which a call for posters is announced.

Researchers from around the world working on the various facets of percussive technology will meet for two days to present new discoveries related to the role of pounding activities in areas such as Primatology, Ethnology and Archaeology.

The conference, which is part of the project 'Percussive technology in Human Evolution: A comparative approach', sponsored by the Leverhulme Trust's International Networks scheme, aims to promote inter-disciplinary comparisons to aid better understanding of the role of pounding activities in primate evolution.

Call for Poster Presentations

A limited number of poster presentations on themes related with the conference key topics will be accepted. Titles and abstracts should be submitted before 15 June 2014 to Adrian Arroyo: a.arroyo@ucl.ac.uk
