Gustav Heinrich Ralph von Koenigswald goes online! Windows into Human Diversity: Gustav Heinrich Ralph von Koenigswald and his palaeoanthropological legacy The annual G.H.R. von Koenigswald Lecture will be replaced by a series of 6 videos. The first episodes are already out and you can watch them on this page or on the Senckenberg YouTube Channel; the other episodes will follow in the next months.
The six videos tell the story of Gustav Heinrich Ralph von Koenigswald, the German-Dutch Palaeoanthropologist who discovered fossils of human ancestors on the island of Java in the first half of the last century. Six videos outline the search and ongoing research activities trying to decipher processes of human evolution. The video series explains how palaeoanthropological research contributes to our understanding of the evolution of hominins and the biocultural diversity of humans alive today.
