Welcome to our website, summarising the work of the Evolutionary Determinants of Health and Urban Wellbeing group.
We agree with this sentiment, but as archaeologists, would add many millennia to his chronology. The Palaeolithic period began long before farming or urbanization were developed, when ancient hunter-gatherer regimes successfully sustained the entire human race. We look at how our health and urban lifestyles are still influenced today by the deep genetic legacy of our Palaeolithic past.
You can contribute comments, suggest further reading materials or evaluate your own appraisal of the Eden Protocol's Health Behaviour template via our Facebook profile.
Our links section, like much of this new site, is expanding daily. It lists departments, research centres and organisations that work on directly or indirectly related themes: please tell us of others you know about or work with.
The pages listed in the contents summarise aspects of modern urban living from a human evolutionary perspective. They look at various themes, including Health Behaviours, Human Locomotion, Urban Greenspace, Town Planning and the importance of team sports.
