Why do we walk on two legs not four? How has the thumb shaped humanity? Why does your back ache so much?
In this exclusive live event, UEA Evolutionary Biologist Professor Ben Garrod and veterinarian and author Dr Jess French are able to answer these questions and more as they look at the anatomy of a chimpanzee to understand how minor tweaks and changes have led us to where we are. With access to skeletal material and the body of a zoo chimp, Ben and Jess explore what it really means to be human.
Please note that the animal died of natural causes and has been donated for the purposes of scientific education.
Parental Advisory. Recommended ages 12+
We know that a lot of people would love to read more to relax - but struggle to find the time or space to read due to the demands and distractions of daily life.
The Book Hive now stays open for an extra hour every Wednesday - meaning you can join us for some quiet reading after work. Phones off, gentle music, and a glass or wine or mug of tea.
Think of it just like scheduling a session at the gym, or committing to meditation or yoga - but for reading.
If you are attending any of the above events, please make sure you do so SAFELY and FOLLOW THE SOCIAL DISTANCING GUIDELINES as set out by the government and the venue. If you have any symptoms or are feeling unwell, PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND.
