The Remarkable Asian Chapter in Our Human Evolutionary Story
A/Prof Darren Curnoe, The University of New South Wales
e_3crop%20300.jpg> Until recently, discoveries in Asia had contributed
little in the understanding of human evolution, meaning the world's
largest and most populated continent had been mostly irrelevant to the
main game of understanding the emergence of our modern human species -
Homo sapiens. This view is changing fast, with some of the most
spectacular discoveries in the history of human evolutionary science
made in Asia during the last five or so years.
The final BrisScience talk of 2012 will look at the significance of
these radical discoveries with a focus on the Red Deer Cave people,
found in southwest China by a team of scientists co-led by the evenings
speaker, A/Prof Darren Curnoe.

Prior to his current academic career, Darren was a former television
news journalist and is passionate about science communication and
writing. He regularly writes articles for on-line newspapers and
magazines, and appears in the media talking about the science of human
Through his dual scientist/communicator role, Darren tries to bring some
of the excitement of discovery, and love and passion for nature to the
broader community; to reveal the mystery of our own human origins; and
to help remove the barriers to understanding how science works.
