The Beginning of String : Part of the 'A History of the World in 100 Objects' lecture series Other events...
A public lecture by Associate Professor Jane Balme, Archaeology Discipline Chair, UWA.

String may have its antecedents in the behaviour of our ancestors, however subsequent use by our own species (Homo sapiens sapiens) to create complex tools, symbolic items and to colonise new continents demonstrates the importance of this technology for our deep history. This lecture covers the first 30,000 years of people's use of string and how they used it to change the world.

This lecture is the first in a series of talks that are part of the 'A History of the World in 100 Objects' exhibition, presented by the WA Museum. The exhibition will be on show from 13 Feb 2016 18 Jun 2016.
