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.”

Free tickets at the Fox Tucson Theatre ticket booth (in front of the theater) starting at 4:00pm on the day of each lecture. For more information visit http://downtownlectures.arizona.edu/.
