In this podcast, Alice Mascarenhas talks to Professor Clive Finlayson, Director of the Gibraltar National Museum, about the forthcoming 25th session of the Calpe Conference, this year focusing on the Iberian Neanderthals. The conference coincides with the 95th anniversary of the discovery of the Neanderthal child’s skull from Devil’s Tower Rock Shelter, popularly known today as Flint. The conference will also commemorate the life’s work of the late Professor Ofer Bar-Yosef who was a renowned archaeologist who had dedicated a major part of his research to the study of the Neanderthals. Professor Bar-Yosef was a guest speaker at the first Calpe Conference on Neanderthals, in 1998, and had returned to Calpe subsequently. Registrations for the conference are currently open via www.gibmuseum.gi
