Museum Lecture series on the Smart Neanderthal

Professor Clive Finlayson will be holding a lecture for the public at the John Mackintosh Hall which is based on his latest book published by Oxford University.

A statement from the Ministry of Heritage reads:

The next lecture in the museum series will be given by Professor Clive Finlayson on Thursday 14th March at 7pm at the John Mackintosh Hall. Professor Finlayson’s talk is entitled “The Smart Neanderthal” which is the title of his latest book just published by Oxford University Press. The
book will be officially launched by Minister the Hon Professor John Cortes later this month.

The lecture will retrace the footsteps of the research carried out in Gibraltar which is uncovering many new aspects of Neanderthal behaviour. It is also expected that Professor Finlayson will take advantage of the lecture to reveal hitherto unpublished information about Gibraltar’s prehistory.

The lecture is open to all and is free.
