Palaeoanthropology Discussion Group
This student led initiative is open to undergraduates, postgraduates and staff. The discussion group will focus on recent papers in palaeoanthropology and will include invited speakers and social events. It is hoped that this group will be a base for final year undergraduates and postgraduates, with an interest in palaeoanthropology, to have the chance to present their work to receive feedback, gain confidence and prepare them future presentations. The first meeting will take place on 14th October, midday (12.00) in the Stirling Library.
