Peking Man talk, May 18, 2008.

On Sunday, May 18, 2008, I gave a perfectly respectable talk on the history of the Peking Man digs, an important paleontological dig that took place in China in the 1920s.
The talk was held at a local library for the local branch of the US China People's Friendship Association, an organization that helps to foster ties and understanding between the US and China.
I hold a Master's degree in East Asian Studies from Cornell University with a focus on Chinese history and language, and my Master's thesis focused on the history of the Peking Man digs.
The talk went reasonably well and the audience asked many questions.
