The Cave Hunters and the Truth Machine

Join independent artist and animator Sean Harris and Royal Holloway palaeontologist and climate scientist Professor Danielle Schreve “in conversation” with historian and author, Karolyn Shindler, for an evening of talks around their collaboration and new exhibition, The Cave Hunters and the Truth Machine, which tells how the discovery of fossils of Ice Age animals from the 18th century to the present day has informed us about climate and environmental change, evolution and how animal communities respond to change. The exhibition will be open before and after the lecture and there will also be a special animation projection on the study terrace on the roof of the Emily Wilding Davison building afterwards. 

Admission free but booking is essential.
