ESHE, the European Society for the study of Human Evolution, promotes the broad field of research which investigates
how humans evolved both biologically and culturally. Contributing disciplines typically include hominin palaeontology and
palaeogenetics; comparative and functional studies of extant primates, using both morphological and molecular evidence;
Palaeolithic archaeology; and applied studies of stable isotopes, dating, taphonomy, palaeoecology and

ESHE aims to stimulate communication and scientific cooperation between scientists, and to improve public
understanding of human evolution. Core activities of the society are: the organization of yearly meetings with a scientific
programme, as well as a public-outreach event; encouraging and helping the development of international and
interdisciplinary research proposals and projects, and initiating and supporting activities which increase the public visibility
of human evolution studies.

The ESHE annual conference brings together an average of over 350 experts and graduate students that present the
most recent research in human evolution and adaptation in Plio-Pleistocene contexts, including results from biologicalphysical
research, archaeology, geoarchaeology, zooarchaeology, earth sciences, aDNA, isotopes, etc.
