As summer approaches, we are pleased to report that another Wenner-Gren symposium went off beautifully. Wenner-Gren Symposium #145 on “Alternative Pathways to Complexity: Evolutionary Trajectories in the Middle Paleolithic and Middle Stone Age,” was held from June 1-8, 2012, at Häringe Slott, near Stockholm, Sweden. Organizers of the conference were Erella Hovers (The Hebrew University of Jerusalem) and Steven Kuhn (University of Arizona). The venue was of historic significance, as Häringe Castle is the former country estate of Axel Wenner-Gren, the Foundation’s benefactor.
A more detailed report on the results of the conference and a list of those who participated will be posted in the coming weeks.
