2016 marks the 25th year after a century of Homo erectus research. It was in 1891 that the first Pithecanthropus erectus was discovered in Java. One hundred years later, in 1991, at the International Seckenberg Conference in Frankfurt, the first Dmanisi hominin discovery was introduced. Since then, five hominin skulls have emerged, to further elucidate the human evolution story.

Papers that will be presented by The Stone Age Institute Researchers -

Nicholas Toth and Kathy Schick:
"Early Homo, The Palaeolithic Record, and Cognitive Complexity"

Jackson Njau:
"Early hominins at Olduvai Gorge, Tanzania and their paleoenvironmental context"
