Wide open skies, grand horizons and the promise of adventure: the Neogene has it all. Join host David Mountain as he explores the varied environments of this time period and the plants and animals that made them up. You might even come face-to-face with your own ancestors in the plains of East Africa!*
Providing valuable travel tips are two Neogene experts: Dr Aly Baumgartner, a palaeobotanist at the Sternberg Museum of Natural History (https://twitter.com/PaleoLorax; https://scientiaandveritas.wordpress.com/) and Dr Laurence Dumouchel, a paleoanthropologist at Wichita State University (https://twitter.com/paleolau; https://www.wichita.edu/profiles/academics/fairmount_college_of_liberal_arts_and_sciences/Anthropology/Dumouchel-Laurence.php).
