Love and Death in the Stone Age
October 21, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm| Free
Burying and visiting the graves of deceased loved ones distinguishes humans from other animals. Mary Stiner, Regents’ Professor in the School of Anthropology, explores the development of burial practices, which likely represents the first cognitive bridge between the living and the deceased in human evolution.
This lecture is part of the UA College of Social and Behavioral Sciences’ Downtown Lecture Series on “immortality.”
