Wednesday 15th January Operation Overlord: Great Plans and Big Egos. Talk by Lord Richards of Herstmonceux 7.30 pm Operation OVERLORD was the biggest amphibious operation in history. It took years of almost faultless planning and preparation. Yet it was a close run thing, in part because of the oversize egos and rivalries of the politicians and generals involved, on both the Allied and Axis sides. Underpinned by a campaign narrative that culminates in the fall of Paris, this revealing talk also examines the conduct and motives of the characters in whose hands our destiny lay. 
Talks are held at the Mountford Rooms. Emsworth Community Centre. North Street. Emsworth PO10 7DD   Tickets are available on the door and doors open at 7pm.  EM&HT Members £3    Non members £4  Please check the Visit Us page for opening times:  http://www.emsworthmuseum.org.uk/visitus

Monday 20th January Social coordination in great apes and human children

Dr Sophie Milward, Lecturer, Dept Psychology, Portsmouth University

Science Discovery Group Held  on  the  3rd Monday   of  the  month,   7.30   -  9.15  at  Emsworth Community  Centre £3pp on the door. ​Humans are known for being highly social beings, able to cooperate and coordinate in complex ways and on huge scales.  This is one of the skills that has been argued to make us unique, and explain our sophisticated cultures and techonologies, which in turn have made us the dominant species on this planet.  However, many other species show collaborative and coordination abilities to some extent.  I will present evidence from evolutionary and developmental psychology experiments with human children and our closest living relatives, the great apes, to demonstrate the ways in which we are similar, but also different from our evolutionary cousins.  For more information Email:  sciencediscoverygroup@gmail.com
