The rich human palaeoanthropological record shows an unexpectedly complex pattern in the tempo and mode of human evolution. Evidence for many of the key phases is found in East Africa, and has been shaped by critical discoveries by teams led by Richard Leakey, or work inspired by his finds. The meeting focussed on key evolutionary transitions to understand the interaction of biology, behaviour, culture and environment.
