Professor Alice Roberts, known to fans for Coast (BBC Two), The Incredible Human Journey (BBC Two) and Horizon (BBC Two) is delighted to announce a brand new, UK tour, Tamed, in Autumn 2017. Beginning in Manchester on 15th October 2017 the tour will come to #Worthing’s Assembly Hall on Thursday 23rd November.
How do you tame wildness? For hundreds of thousands of years our ancestors depended on wild plants and animals. They were hunter-gatherers – consummate survival experts, but taking the world as they found it. Then a revolution happened: we started to domesticate wild species. The human population boomed, and civilization took off.
Join Alice Roberts as she delves into archaeology, history and genetics to reveal the amazing stories of the species that became our allies. From dogs, cattle and horses to wheat, potatoes and apples, find out how taming these species has left its mark on them – and us.
Alice is an anthropologist and Professor of Public Engagement in Science at the University of Birmingham. She has written seven popular science and archaeology books. Her book about embryology and evolution, The Incredible Unlikeliness of Being, was shortlisted for the Wellcome Trust Book Prize in 2015.
As a broadcaster, Alice has presented several landmark BBC series including The Incredible Human Journey, Origins of Us, Ice Age Giants and The Celts. She presents the long running archaeology series Digging for Britain (BBC Four).
