'Uncivilised Genes: Human Evolution and the Urban Paradox' - Gustav Milne

Eminent archaeologist and City Lit London walks tutor Gustav Milne is about to publish a new book.

'Uncivilised Genes: Human Evolution and the Urban Paradox' will be published this month, and opens a window on ourselves, the cities we now live in and the world we need to build for tomorrow. It argues that a far greater appreciation of our long human evolution (already tried and tested by the rigours of natural selection) holds the key to a healthier future for us all. 

You can find out more about the book here.

Gustav will be teaching a one day course at City Lit based on his book in December - Urban Wellbeing in modern London from a human evolutionary perspective.
