In May the Science and Society group will view the Nova/National Geographic Society special Dawn of Humanity. This program presents an important set of discoveries of ancient fossils of our human ancestors. Deep in a South African cave, a team of experts has shared their discovery of a wealth of fossils which fills a crucial gap in the record of our origins and may span the transition between the ape-like australopithecines (such as the famous Lucy) and the earliest members of the human family. At the center of the discovery is paleoanthropologist Lee Berger, a character brimming with enthusiasm and opinions. Since this is a two-hour long presentation, we will view it in two one-hour sessions as follows. Due to scheduling hiccups in May we will schedule part one of this Science and Society presentation for Tuesday May 16th at 2 PM and the second session for Tuesday May 30th at 2 PM in the Gathering place.
