Our Director of Academic Programmes & Research, Dr Darren Fa, has just returned from Cantabria where he was invited as a Keynote speaker to a week-long University Summer School event titled “Caves and seas from the past. Prehistory at the seashore”.
The Summer School was organised by the University of Cantabria at their Ramales Campus in northern Spain, an area known for its cave art.
The programme included lectures looking at the footprint of several human species and their relationship with caves and the sea. Attendees were shown how evidence is obtained to explore and understand the daily life of communities in the past who inhabited the seashore and how these communities faced phenomena such as global climate changes.
Dr Fa’s two keynotes were titled “Gibraltar: from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean in the Prehistory” and “The last Neanderthals and the use of marine resources”. The lectures were well attended and inspired the participants to better understand the crucial connections between prehistoric peoples and the sea. He also gave a public lecture based on the same theme.
