Wenner-Gren Symposium

CIRHUS director Randall White traveled to Sintra, Portugal from October 16-22 to join 17 other experts in a week-long, closed-door symposium on the role of fire in human evolution. His presentation, entitled Heat and light technologies in the Vézère Aurignacian underlined the importance of the complex fire-features observed during the CIRHUS-sponsored excavations at several 40 000 year-old Cro-Magnon sites in the classic Vézère Valley of SW France.
