On today's show, we talk to Dr. Shara Bailey about what ancient teeth can tell us about human evolution and ultimately about ourselves. What is paleoanthropology? What can we learn from the shape of teeth and how they are worn? All this and more on this episode of the Archaeology Show.
Mary Leakey was born on 6th February 1913 and went on to be a paleoanthropologist famously working at Olduvai Gorge with her husband and discovering 3.6mya fossilised footprints at Laetoli in Tanzania. This episode is based on two articles on the Trowelblazers website.
