News and Events

One "leg" of IHO's mission is to bring the science of human origins to the public arena. Please return to the IHO news and events site to read and learn about breaking human origins science news and participate in upcoming events.

In the last 60,000 years, humans have emerged as an ecologically dominant species and have successfully colonized every terrestrial habitat.

Humans are unusual because we cooperate with each other in ways that other animals do not.

Science is society’s best method for understanding the world.

It is at the confluence of different experiences that new theories come into being.
