  • The EPE (as part of the DEPE) donated gloves, laboratory equipment etc. for the fight against COVID-19.
  • The Succulent Karoo Research Station had to close down due to the Corona crisis. One of the two managers left for her home country. The local authorities rejected access to a newly arrived foreign national who arrived to support the remaining manager who then also left the station.

Welcome to Valéria Romano, presently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Alicante, Spain. Valéria is back to the DEPE and will be mainly working on human cultural evolution. Her research focuses on the interface between socio-spatial structure and cultural transmission using the archaeological record.

Congratulations
