The Neanderthals with Dr. Antonio Rosas and Dr. Marina Lozano on the Evoluciona program of Tarragona Radio and IPHES

Evoluciona, la investigació sobre l'evolució humana, amb l'IPHES - Tarragona Ràdio

In this Evoluciona we continued to talk about human evolution and specifically the Neanderthals. We did it with two special guests.

In the first part we spoke with Dr. Antonio Rosas, one of the top international experts on Neanderthals and then accompanied us live from the IPHES facilities in Sant Pere and Sant Pau la Dra. Marina Lozano, paleoanthropologist, researcher at IPHES and professor at URV. We spoke with her about her latest published work on Neanderthals from the Lezetxiki site in Gipuzkoa.

A few weeks ago, a new study of the Lezetchiki site was published in the American Journal of Biological Anthropology, confirming the presence of Neanderthals much later than previously thought. The site is a very important historical site, we could say emblematic, to learn about prehistory in the Iberian Peninsula and especially to learn about a very important moment such as the transition period between Neanderthals and anatomically modern humans.

As for Antonio Rosas, he is a research professor at the CSIC and director of the Paleoanthropology Group at the National Museum of Natural Sciences and one of the leading international experts on Neanderthals. He has participated in the Neanderthal Genome project led by today's Nobel Prize in Medicine Svante Päävo through the Neanderthal remains of Sidrón (Asturias).
