The global expansions of Homo sapiens are remarkable, and in this talk I focus on their earliest dispersals into monsoonal Asia. The western margin of monsoonal Asia marks a major biogeographic boundary with the arid landscapes to the west that span the interface of Eurasia and Africa. In this talk, Dr James Blinkhorn will review patterns of palaeoenvironmental and behavioural change from this key threshold over the past 200 thousand years, placing them in the wider context of regional and inter-regional debates.
