The National Center for Research on Human Evolution (CENIEH) celebrates White Night for the seventh year, organized by the Burgos City Council, with a guided tour of the laboratories, and with the premiere of the second season of “Dialogus Sapiens”, thanks to Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT) – Collaboration of the Ministry of Science and Innovation.
This is a podcast that brings together researchers from CENIEH and other renowned scientific centers to discuss topics of interest in the field of human evolution. The first dialogue of this second season, and the seventh of the podcast, titled “Human Evolution, the Brain and the Anthropocene”, is recorded at the National Museum of Natural Sciences (MNCN-CSIC) and airs this Saturday, 20 May. At 10:00 p.m.
CENIEH paleontologist Emiliano Brunner and MNCN-CSIC research professor Fernando Valladares talk about topics as diverse as technology in its broadest sense, human impact on our environment, consciousness or Homo sapiens strategies for survival.
CENIEH has already posted a “Done” sign for the guided tours that will take place during White Night in Burgos. More than 800 people will tour the facilities for an up-close look at the experimental archaeology, conservation and restoration, geochronology, and microscopy and computed microtomography laboratories. In addition, they’ll be able to view osteological collections of large mammals from the European Pleistocene, including spectacular reproductions such as a steppe bison skull and an American lion skull.
As an innovation, in this seventh edition each lab tour has been increased to 30 minutes, with a total duration of the five location visits of two and a half hours. This change is due to repeated requests in the satisfaction surveys carried out at the end of each open day, to extend the time in each lab to be able to learn more about the work being done. makes.
