Thursday 14th Feb. 2019: we enjoyed a very entertaining and highly erudite talk delivered by Jennifer Horseman, Learning and Engagement Officer from Creswell Crags. Jen basically ran through an anthropology of human sexuality producing some amusing and thought provoking correlations between some examples of other species behaviours and their human counterparts. She then went on to explore some of the intriguing, and highly debated, archaeology that finds depictions of sexuality in the Upper Paleolithic era, (about 30,000-11,000 years ago) especially the so called Venus figurines. There are many possibilities for the occurrence of these figurines and Jen cautioned us about over-determining their signification from our contemporary viewpoints. A very different evening indeed!
