Shetland UHI invites you to join a free lecture by Dr Clarke on Palaeolithic Art as part of our Open Events week.

Forty thousand years ago there was an explosion of art, by a new species of humans that had migrated into Europe from Africa, via Asia Minor; Homo sapiens. The lecture will consider Upper Palaeolithic art in contrast to the more limited capabilities of earlier species, particularly Homo Neanderthalensis with a view to understanding the place of art and creativity in the evolutionary process.
