What makes a successful scientist? What have we learnt about “man’s place in nature” since Huxley? How did you become interested in evolution? Full interview


Professor Robert Foley trained as an archaeologist t the University of Cambridge, where he has spent most of his career. His work, however, has been largely in human evolution and ecology more broadly, and has specialised in aligning studies of human evolution with evolutionary principles and methods more broadly. He has worked mostly in East Africa, but sees anthropology and evolution as a wonderful excuse to travel the world.
