Webinar: Primate Change - How the world we made is remaking us

In the last two hundred years, humans have made such a tremendous impact on the world that our geological epoch is about to be declared the 'Anthropocene', or the Age of Man. But while we have been busy changing the shape of the world, the ways of living that we have been fashioning have, as if under the cover of darkness, been changing our bodies.

During this webinar Vybarr gives an overview of the kinds of changes that we can see all over our bodies, changes caused by our environment to our height, our faces or our feet. The anthropocene body is a work of art 10,000 years in the making.
