Professor Hill is interested in the whole range of human evolution, particularly in the environmental and ecological context in which it occurred. Since 1968 he has carried out fieldwork in eastern Africa, in Pakistan, and in the United Arab Emirates. For many years he has directed the Baringo Paleontological Research Project, a multidisciplinary research program operating in the Tugen Hills in Kenya. This ongoing work was the topic of a special double issue of the Journal of Human Evolution in 2002, and in 1999, he co-edited Fossil Vertebrates of Arabia. We talk with him about the climate’s influence on human evolution.
