October 9, afternoon: Speaker Session, Cradle of Humankind Excavation Site
We’ll head north out of the city towards the high veld and the Cradle of Humankind, home to the origin of our species and site of the discovery of 2+ million year old human fossils. As public access to certain dig sites is very rare, we’ve secured special permission through Lee Berger, South Africa’s leading paleoanthropologist, who will lead us to Malapa, a private excavation site, for a mind bending talk about our civilization.
