In 2013 I was invited to give a talk as part of the Chicago Humanities Festival. This is a great annual celebration with events all over the city. I chose to highlight some of the research that was adding to our understanding of Neanderthal cultural behavior, as well as the perspective of ancient DNA.
What I never expected was the enduring success of this lecture online. As I look back now from the perspective of 2022, more than 1.8 million people have watched this lecture on YouTube.
It was a fun presentation and I hope to be able to do an update soon!
