Geology and dating of the South African early hominin bearing cave deposits

Tue, 23 July 2019 16:00 – 17:30

Dr Robyn Pickering of the University of Cape Town is an isotope geochemist with leanings towards palaeoanthropology and archaeology.

About this Event

Dr Pickering’s research seeks to understand where, and most importantly when, our early human ancestors evolved and what their environments were like. She has spent the last decade developing the U-series technique to date carbonates associated with early human fossils

Robyn is currently pushing for the U-series method to be applicable to dating pedogenic and lacustrine carbonates. Part of her job at the University of Cape Town is to set up the country’s first U-series dating laboratory.
