BioSoc (University of Southampton Biology Society) have helped to arrange a free seminar from Alice Roberts, Professor for Public Engagement with Science (University of Birmingham).

The seminar, titled “The mysterious disappearance of the Ice Age megafauna”, will take place on Thursday 18 October at 1pm until 2pm in Building 67, Room 1027.

Alice is widely known for her television work, including Time Team, Coast, The Incredible Human Journey and Don’t Die Young, and this will be a great opportunity for students to hear her speak and talk to her afterwards; especially if they are interested in anthropology, evolution, medicine or public engagement.

There will also be a chance for students to meet her after the seminar for refreshments, in the Observatory of Building 85, and the book shop will be providing books for purchase and signing.
