Neanderthal Symposium; Presented by the World of Paleoanthropology!

***Update Two***

As we approach the date, we are now accepting Q/A submissions for our board of experts! Please email your Neanderthal related questions to with an appropriate subject to have your question considered!

The Q/A will last for about 30 min, and we will get through as many questions as we can!


The Symposium has a date! January 15th at 1:30AM PST! So expect to see it uploaded on January 16th!

I have something VERY #EXCITING and special to announce!

If you have ever wondered about Neanderthals, this is something you are going to be very interested in!

Early in the #newyear, we will tentatively be hosting our very first ONLINE RECORDED SYMPOSIUM!

Between Tom Higham, Chris Stringer, and Rebecca Wragg Sykes, we are going to have a world-class panel of experts to give a sort of #Neanderthal 101 Presentation and answer all your questions!

There will be a half hour of presentations, each split into around ten minutes and then a half hour Q/A period.


A week prior to the event, I will create a form for people to submit their questions to ask the experts, or that you are curious about. I will pick the ones I feel will provide the best conversation, and we will do that for half an hour.

But wow!!!

Boy, is this going to be AMAZING, some of the top experts in the field, together and at once, presenting an open access #STEM #Scicomm Symposium on a topic that so many people find fascinating but do not know how to approach, or where to look for the proper, and correct information. We want to offer this for free as an educational tool for any of you who may be in the educational field, and a resource for students to use themselves. You are free to share, and use this however you see fit, as long as you credit those involved.

You won’t want to miss this!!!

Expect to see much more news about this in the coming weeks and months and as we get closer to the date, we will release more information.

A big Thank You to all those amazing Anthropologists, and Archaeologists who are participating in this symposium.

Up until we arrive at this most exciting date, be sure to keep up to date with what we are doing! We just published the VERY FIRST Morphology Video in our new series, you can check that out here:

And beyond that, which I do not know what interval it will be on, but shall become a regular thing, we are of course continuing our interview series, the next interview we shall be posting is with Dr. Becca Peixotto, and we following that we have an interview with the amazing Pat Shipman, AND THEN we have an interview with Author Henry Gee about his new book, and explore some content a little outside of our regular realm, and take a deep dive into biology and the Earth’s history.

And on top of all of that, we are working on projects that we have not been able to even talk about yet! There is so much coming up! The future is bright!

Remember, there is always more to learn!
