Neanderthals, The World Before Us, Seth and Prof.Tom Higham Interview #24

Hello and Welcome to the World of Paleoanthropology!

Today we have a wonderful, and very exciting guest ( I mean don’t we always?) with an amazing new book out! “The World Before Us“. Working at Oxford for the last twenty years, he has recently moved to Germany to work at the University of Vienna. The World Before Us is an amazing book detailing our evolution over the last 400,000 years, and discusses us, Neanderthals, and Denisovans! How we are all related, what we have in common, and what we don’t!

Join us for a fun conversation and learn a great deal about Neanderthals, and hear a little about his book! Check out my review of his book here:

Tom is an amazingly nice guy, and we had a great time!

An expert on Neanderthals, Denisovans, and Radio Carbon Dating, Prof. Tom Higham, who now works at the University of Vienna, formerly worked at the Oxford Radio Carbon Excellatrator for 20 years!

It is very well possible that if you have heard of something being dated over the last 20 years, (That dates as far back as 55kya), Tom et.al were involved! Typically for archaeological items, multiple labs are used to cross reference results.

Oxford, is of course, one of the best labs in the World, in part thanks to Prof. Higham.
