Human Evolution Workshop

The Stony Brook University and Turkana Basin Institute Human Evolution Workshop (HEW) Series brings together top scientists and researchers from around the world for lectures and panel discussions on current issues in the field of human prehistory. The first set of these took place at Stony Brook University but with the establishment of TBI facilities at Ileret and Turkwel the annual workshops have been held at either TBI-Ileret or TBI-Turkwel since 2008. The change of location has greatly enriched these workshops and participants have found the remote setting to be highly conducive to the exploration of new ideas, alternative explanations and to the identification of priorities for future work.
