As part of British Science Week, Dr Tori Herridge (Natural History Museum & TrowelBlazers) & Alison Cullingford (U. Bradford Special Collections) will weave science with history, poetry and real-life human experience telling the story of the excavation of Tabun 1 in Jacquetta Hawkes’s own words, capturing the thrill and emotion of scientific discovery. They will explore the science behind one of the most important ancient human fossils ever found. And through the poignant story of Yusra, we will help to highlight the scientific contributions of a much overlooked group: that of Muslim women in the early 20th Century.
